Laparoscopic Surgeries for Ovarian, Adnexal mass, Ectopic Pregnancies
A laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure performed through small abdominal incisions. It is performed using a laparoscope, a narrow lighted tube with a camera attached. The camera displays images of the internal organs and guides the surgeon through the procedure. It may be used to remove a mass from the uterine adnexa (ovaries or fallopian tubes) as well as to treat an ectopic pregnancy (implantation of a fertilized egg outside the uterus, mostly a fallopian tube).
