We describe a novel technique of intraperitoneal ultrasound scan by culdotomy before laparoscopic ovarian resection. To preserve the ovarian parenchyma in a recurrence of serous borderline ovarian tumor, a usual transvaginal ultrasound probe was introduced into the abdominal cavity, covered by a sterile bag, through posterior colpotomy. The pelvis was filled with saline solution and the ultrasound imaging was performed allowing the identification of tumor margins. After precise cystectomy, the tumor was delivered within the endo bag, through the posterior colpotomy. This new approach may be a feasible, effective and cheap technique to guide laparoscopic surgery for complex and/or small ovarian tumors.

Abstract

We describe a novel technique of intraperitoneal ultrasound scan by culdotomy before laparoscopic ovarian resection. To preserve the ovarian parenchyma in a recurrence of serous borderline ovarian tumor, a usual transvaginal ultrasound probe was introduced into the abdominal cavity, covered by a sterile bag, through posterior colpotomy. The pelvis was filled with saline solution and the ultrasound imaging was performed allowing the identification of tumor margins. After precise cystectomy, the tumor was delivered within the endo bag, through the posterior colpotomy. This new approach may be a feasible, effective and cheap technique to guide laparoscopic surgery for complex and/or small ovarian tumors.
