Objective : To assess the advantages, disadvantages, applicability, and complications of operative laparoscopy in ovarian pathologic lesions. Materials and Methods : A retrospective case series which compares 354 patients who had laparoscopic surgery at Ajou University Hospital from June, 1994 to September, 2001 for ovarian pathology. Results : The patient`s ages ranged from 13 to 77 years, and their mean age was 30.9 years. Most of the lesions were less than 7 cm in size and unilateral. The operations performed were cystectomy in 225 cases (63.6%), salpingooophorectomy, oophorectomy, salpingectomy and fenestration or biopsy in order. Operative times were between 10 and 240 minutes (mean: 74.2 minutes). Pathologic examinations of unilateral ovarian tumors were performed in 305 cases. The most common pathology of unilateral ovarian tumor was teratoma (107/305, 35.1%), endometrioma and cystadenoma in order. Malignancies were found in 4 cases including borderline malignancy (1.3%). Pathologies of bilateral ovarian tumor were endometrioma (31/41, 75.6%), teratoma, and fibroma in order. Postoperative hospital stays were from 0 days to 19 days (mean: 2.5 days). There were 7 surgical complications including 3 vessel injury related hematomas, 1 abscess formation, and 3 exploratory laparotomy. Conclusions : We concluded that operative laparoscopy was useful in surgery of ovarian lesions, if there are carefully selected patients, standard procedures, and skilled laparoscopic surgeons.
