Spontaneous pregnancy after laparoscopic cystectomy

Gabriela Simionescu, Sabina Neculai-Valeanu, Radu Maftei, Emil Anton, Bogdan Doroftei


Most women will experience a cyst on the ovaries at least once, and most are painless, cause no symptoms, and are discovered during a routine pelvic exam. Large cysts that can cause symptomatology or infertility problems occur in about 8% among women of reproductive age. The current case report comes to show that laparoscopic surgery is the key for persistent organic tumors of the ovary, after a complete diagnostic of the cyst; not the expectant management or hormonal therapy, but laparoscopic cystectomy after transvaginal punction and drainage of the fluid is minimal requiring as recovery timing, medical care period, low costs, and not the least, ovarian functionality, after suppressing ovulatory function.
