Polycystic Ovarian Disease Laparoscopy Video
polycystic ovarian disease laparoscopy video shows a procedure called ovarian
drilling. In the video, the right side ovary is being held
by a forceps, while the instrument with a very fine needle
is being brought to the ovary. The needle carries electric
current, which destroys small portions of the ovary. It must
be done with precision and it takes a skilled laparoscopic
surgeon to do that. To be a good candidate for the procedure,
the woman must have a bit larger ovaries.
done right, the procedure will bring ovulation back to the patient
within a few months, and some 50% of the patients have a good
chance of getting pregnant within a year. The
risk of ovarian drilling is that scar tissue on the ovary may
form. Also, in many cases, the effect will last only for a couple
of months. If the patient had already had increased hair growth
and loss of scalp hair, the ovarian drilling will not help with
these at all.
