Abstract

Dermoid cysts were diagnosed by transvaginal sonography in 19 patients who subsequently underwent laparoscopy to confirm the nature and extent of the lesion and the mobility of the adnexa. Eighteen patients underwent surgery after the ovary was exteriorized through a posterior colpoceliotomy. No intraoperative complications were observed, and sonographic follow-up at 3 and 6 months after surgery showed a normal sonographic ovarian pattern. Laparoscopically assisted vaginal removal of dermoid cysts should be considered as an alternative to laparotomy and operative laparoscopy in cases when adnexal mobility is proven and vaginal extraction is feasible.
