Laparoscopic adenectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of one or both ovaries or fallopian tubes. It is also called laparoscopic oophorectomy or salpingectomy, depending on which organ is being removed.
The procedure is performed using a laparoscope, which is a long, thin tube with a camera and light attached to the end. The laparoscope is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen, allowing the surgeon to see and access the ovaries or fallopian tubes.
During the procedure, the surgeon may use various techniques to remove the affected organ, such as cutting and cauterizing the tissue or using specialized instruments to remove the organ intact. The goal of the procedure is to treat conditions such as ovarian or fallopian tube cancer, cysts, or other abnormal growths that may affect fertility or cause pain or other symptoms.
Laparoscopic adenectomy is usually performed under general anesthesia and may require a short hospital stay. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications, such as bleeding, infection, and damage to surrounding organs. Your doctor can provide more information about the risks and benefits of laparoscopic adenectomy and whether it may be an appropriate treatment option for you.
