Strategy for laparoscopic total hysterectomy with a big adnexal mass
Hysterectomy when managing a big adnexal mass has always been a challenging situation for laparoscopic surgeons. Complete preoperative assessment, surgical experience and strategy are fundamental to address adnexal pathology laparoscopicallly, both for benign and malignant conditions. Adequate trocar placement, full inspection of the abdominal cavity, comprehensive evaluation of the tumor’s surface, cytology and definition of the nature of the adnexal mass are truly essential. In addition, proper identification of standard anatomical landmarks is fundamental to perform hysterectomy with adnexectomy, which helps to prevent damage to surrounding structures. Final assessment of the vaginal cuff may lead to the diagnosis of pelvic floor disorders that should be repaired during vaginal cuff closure. In this video, we present a case of hysterectomy and adnexectomy by laparoscopy in a 46-year-old patient complaining of abdominal pain secondary to the presence of a 13cm simple adnexal cyst with normal CA 125 values.
