Laparoscopic Resection of a Torted Ovarian Dermoid Cyst
4 years ago
Ovarian dermoid cysts may present as an emergency after torsion or rupture and from time to time general surgeons will encounter such a case. Laparoscopic management is beneficial and preservation of ovarian tissue and the fallopian tube is usually possible. We would recommend placing the cyst into a bag and externalizing it prior to the aspiration to avoid any risk of contamination.
