A Random Clinical Trial of the Impact of Electrocoagulation on Ovarian Reserve After Laparoscopic Excision of Ovarian Cyst
Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is currently considered the treatment of choice in women
with benign ovarian cyst and has gained increasing acceptance among gynecological
surgeons(1). However, the safety of this technique in terms of ovarian damage to the
operated gonad caused by electrocoagulation has recently been questioned. Many evidences
support that the removal of ovarian cysts is associated with an injury to ovarian reserve.
On the contrary, some retrospective studies did not show adverse outcomes compared with the
control group (tubal infertility) . There is a lack of good clinical and scientific evidence
such as randomized controlled study to report definitively the impact of electrocoagulation
on ovarian reserve after laparoscopic excision of ovarian cyst.
