Abstract

Laparoscopic management of a benign ovarian mass is regarded as the best surgical approach in many cases. Although several studies have found this approach to be safe and effective, surgeon preparation, technical skill, and technique are critical to obtain good patient outcomes. The purpose of this article is to review the preparatory evaluation and surgical technique for laparoscopic removal of a benign adnexal mass, including cases complicated by pregnancy or obesity.
