Abstract

Ovarian neoplasms are common in women of all ages. As many as 10% of women in the United States will undergo surgical removal of an adnexal mass sometime in their lifetime. Gynecologic surgeons have pioneered laparoscopic surgery, developing what was originally a diagnostic tool into a safe and effective approach to management of adnexal masses. Accumulating scientific data support the laparoscopic approach to the adnexal mass as the preferred treatment.
