Gynecology: Bartholin gland cyst — Surgical resection. Treatment
Bartholin gland cyst is a collection of the gland secretion resulting from the difficulties of its outflow. Modern gynecology offers several types of surgeries to eliminate the cyst, but up to 50% patients face the disease recurrence in the coming months or years. Removal of the Bartholin gland in many cases is the best method for treatment of recurrent cysts.
The indications for gland removal are determined by wishes of the patient based on the case history, general clinical and pelvic examination. Cyst excision require general or local anesthesia.
The incision is carried on the inner surface of the small labia. The enlarged gland is excised, hemostasis is performed, and the resulting defect is sutured. Postoperatively, the patient may report a slight pain, which usually does not require drug analgesia.
Surgical treatment implies the patient’s stay in the clinic with a full board for 2 days. Postoperatively, the patients received palliative care and nursing services to the extent necessary. Development of further guidance includes etiological treatment (removal of the causes of cyst formation) and lifestyle correction with a temporary restriction of sexual intercourse and rigorous compliance with the rules of personal hygiene.Hide
