Laparoscopy can be defined as a method, which can be performed for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, and which enables to visualize the inside of the abdomen with special instruments from 3- 5 mm of holes without any surgical incision.
Laparoscopy allows to examine ovarian, uterus and fallopian tubes from 3-5 mm incisions made in the abdominal region with the help of an optical device called laparoscope with light and camera on the front. It is also an important procedure for the diagnosis of infertility. Laparoscopy, which is originally a type of endoscopy method, is also a surgical method used in the treatment of gynecological diseases.
Why Is Laparoscopy Performed?
Although laparoscopy is performed for many different reasons in the field of gynecology, it is mainly used during the diagnosis, follow-up and treatment of infertility. Diagnostic laparoscopy is carried out within 20 – 25 minutes; therapeutic laparoscopy is terminated in approximately 30 – 35 minutes, and has very low risk of postoperative complication.
Unexplained pelvic pain, unspecified infertility, pelvic infections, leiomyomas, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, gynecological cancers and pelvic adhesion can be diagnosed using laparoscopy.
Laparoscopy is frequently used especially for the diagnosis of infertility because of its functions such as the evaluation of fallopian tubes considered as blocked based on hysterosalpingogram (HSG) results and the determination of the presence of additional pathologies in the abdomen.
As mentioned earlier, laparoscopy is also used for therapeutic purposes. Hysterectomy, removal of the ovaries, ovarian cysts and leiomyomas, and removal of pelvic adhesion can be performed with “laparoscopic” methods.
What Are The Advantages of Laparoscopy?
The biggest advantage of laparoscopy method also called closed surgery is not to make any surgical incision in the body. Therefore, bleeding is much less than open surgery, but the risk of infection is also decreased in the healing process. The recovery process of the patients is shorter than open surgery after laparoscopy, which reduces the duration of hospitalization, does not leave a clear mark after procedure and significantly prevents tissue damage as the image of abdominal region is enlarged during the operation.
