Gynecology:Resection of Benign Tumors of the Ovaries
All benign ovarian formations are subject to surgical removal. This approach is due to the fact that about 10% of them tend to degenerate into malignant tumors. The usual surgical technique involves the complete excision of the affected ovary or ovary with an adjacent fallopian tube. However, in young patients, only a part of the organ affected by tumor can be removed.
In modern clinics, the intervention is carried out laparoscopically, which accelerates rehabilitation of patients and reduces the risk of adhesion development in the postoperative period.
The traditional manipulation is performed under general anesthesia. After disinfecting treatment of the abdominal wall, the physician makes 3 to 4 punctures, into which he inserts an optical device (endovideoscope) and microsurgical instruments.
The affected structures are excised with scissors, laser or electrocautery. Bleeding tissues are coagulated (cauterized) with an electrode. This impact reduces the risks of postoperative inflammation.
At the end of the procedure, the abdominal cavity is washed and dried with swabs. The extracted tissue is sent for histological examination. All manipulations take no more than 40 minutes.
Postoperative recovery lasts for 3 days. During this period, the patient receives the analgesic and anti-bacterial drugs. Before discharge, the gynecologist conducts a follow-up examination and provides recommendations for further rehabilitation.Hide
