The residual adnexa--asset or liability?

American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
M I FuntJ D Thompson


Nine hundred and twenty-two patients who had one or both adnexa conserved at the time of abdominal hysterectomy for benign diseases are presented. Thirteen patients (1.4%) have required subsequent re-exploration for adnexal pathology. Corpus luteum cysts were found in 10 (77%) of these patients. The primary pathology was found in the Fallopian tube in five patients (38%). No patient was found to have an ovarian malignancy in the short period of follow-up. Conservation of ovarian function is recommended in patients who have not undergone menopause.
