Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women. The clinical manifestation of PCOS varies from a mild menstrual disorder to severe disturbances of reproductive and metabolic functions. Management of women with PCOS depends on the symptoms. These could be ovulatory dysfunction-related infertility, menstrual disorders, or androgen related symptoms. Normalization of menstrual cycles and ovulation could occur with modest weight loss, medication, and/or laparoscopic ovarian wedge resection procedure. In PCOS, anovulation relates to low-follicle-stimulating hormone concentrations and the arrest of antral follicle growth in the final stages of maturation. Chronic anovulation over a long period of time is also associated with an increased risk of endometrial hyperplasia and carcinoma.
This is an outpatient procedure done under general anesthesia. Recovery is usually 7 days.
