Endometriosis is a disorder which causes tissues lining the inner uterus to grow outside the uterus. One way to cure that is through hormonal treatments but they have no long term effect on the endometriosis, therefore most of the doctors would suggest you to opt for the surgery. Laparoscopy is the most common type of surgery that help in both the diagnosis and the treatment of endometriosis. The procedure involves the removal of the tissue that is affected by the endometriosis. Before the ovaries or the fallopian tubes are removed, the surgeons try their best to prevent the removal of the glands. Other way of treating the endometriosis is through a laparoscopic uterine nerve ablation that involves severing of the nerves in the ligaments. And, if the method is effective then there is no need to remove the uterus.
Hysteroscopy is the procedure performed to treat the uterine cavity pathology. The best time to perform the surgery is during the 6-12 day of the menstrual cycle. Though uterine rarely affects the infertility process but it plays a key role in the reproduction system. Moreover, the congenital uterine anomalies negatively influence the fertility ratio in the females.
During the procedure, a thin telescope is first attached to a light source and a video camera and then inserted through the vagina and cervix while inserting the fluid that helps in distending the cavity. The video camera allows the surgeon a magnified view of the uterine cavity and helps him decide the kind of hysteroscopy they would follow, be it a diagnostic hysteroscopy, a hysteroscopic myomectomy or tubal cannulation.
Myomectomy is the surgical procedure of removing uterine fibroids, commonly known as leiomyomas. Leiomyomas are benign small muscle tumours that become tumour at a later stage. If not treated on time, the leiomyomas tend to grow over time and is mostly followed by skin graft. The risk of possessing the non- cancerous growth is mostly during the childhood years but it can happen at any age.
The main difference between hysterectomy and myomectomy is that unlike the first, a myomectomy only removes the fibroids and do not disturb the uterus. The women who undergo myomectomy complain about heavy bleeding and pelvic pressure in the initial days but later on report of improvement in fibroid symptoms.
Oophorectomy is the procedure of removing the ovaries. The procedure involving removal of both ovaries is called bilateral oophorectomy and the procedure involving removal of only one ovary is termed as unilateral oophorectomy. This is the most sought-after treatment option for ovarian cancer or other ovarian abnormalities. Sometimes, the procedure is done on the women who have an elevated risk of hereditary cancer, and is further as a precaution for preventing ovarian or fallopian tube cancer. Researchers have proved that the ovarian surgery helps improve the survival ratio of the BRCA mutation carriers. But since the ovaries are being removed, the treatment causes immediate surgical menopause.
Polycystic ovary syndrome is very common and a leading cause of infertility among women today. You may have tried a lot of measures like losing weight or taking various fertility drugs but these may not be always effective. If you want to get the problem cured permanently, then ovarian drilling is the best available option. Ovarian drilling is a laparoscopic procedure that is generally performed under general anaesthesia. The process involves inserting of a tube into your abdomen and filling it with air so that surgeon can have a clear view of the abdomen. Then they use electric current to make small holes in the ovaries. Basically, the problem of PCODs arises when the wall of the ovaries are thick and affects the chances of getting pregnant. Drilling helps break down the wall a little making it easier to conceive.
