Laparoscopic management of polycystic ovarian disease.
Laparoscopic treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome has its roots in bilateral wedge resection. Although it is still unclear why surgery is effective in treating this syndrome, more than 600 cases of patients treated laparoscopically have been reported in the literature. Recent publications enhance our understanding of appropriate patient selection as well as the effectiveness of, and the complications associated with, this procedure.
