Gynecologic Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is a surgical method performed with general anesthesia. It is based on the placement of an optics similar to a hysteroscope through a small incision in the patient’s navel. Besides the optics, two very small trocars are introduced near the patient’s groin on each side as auxiliary instrumental. Abdominal cavity is filled with air (carbonic anhydride) to visualize abdominal structures in a better way. Via laparoscopy, we can reach diagnosis and also correct diseases such as endometriosis, abdominal adhesions, myomas, etc., through surgery. The patient remains confined for a few hours and two days later she continues with her normal life.

There are different types of acquired anomalies: myomas (also called fibromas), polyps and synechias (also called intrauterine adhesions).

Miomas are benign tumors in the uterus which grow from the myometrium, which is the muscle that forms the uterine body. They never become malignant and can grow inside or towards the abdominal cavity. In this last case they do not affect the patient’s fertility, but in case they are very big, they will have to be removed via laparoscopy because they may cause inconvenience.

Fallopian tube proximal obstruction can have good prognosis with the surgery, hysteroscopy in first place and in case this one fails, laparoscopy.
