Our purpose was to evaluate the recurrence rate after laparoscopic excision of ovarian endometrioma. Study Design: An unrandomized prospective clinical study was performed at 2 tertiary-care centers of 366 patients who had a minimum of 6 months of postoperative follow-up or 6 months after the suspension of medical therapy after laparoscopic ovarian endometrioma excision. Patients underwent clinical examination and vaginal ultrasonography 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery and subsequently at least once a year. We evaluated the cumulative recurrence rate of pain and clinical findings of ovarian endometrioma, the rate of repeated surgery, and the recovery of fertility.

Abstract

Our purpose was to evaluate the recurrence rate after laparoscopic excision of ovarian endometrioma. Study Design: An unrandomized prospective clinical study was performed at 2 tertiary-care centers of 366 patients who had a minimum of 6 months of postoperative follow-up or 6 months after the suspension of medical therapy after laparoscopic ovarian endometrioma excision. Patients underwent clinical examination and vaginal ultrasonography 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery and subsequently at least once a year. We evaluated the cumulative recurrence rate of pain and clinical findings of ovarian endometrioma, the rate of repeated surgery, and the recovery of fertility.
