When present, it is often associated with severe pain. Hurd WW, Himebaugh KS, Cofer KF, et al. Blunt dissection is used to separate the cyst from the ovarian tissue. The patient recovered from her surgery without problems and was discharged on the third postoperative day. In all cases, definitive diagnosis must await careful examination of permanent sections. The loss of an ovary can compromise the following fertility. The incidence is highest in pregnant women who are at 10 to 17 weeks of gestation, especially if they have an ovarian mass. Note that the affected ovary contains the corpus luteum, and this is an established risk factor for torsion in early pregnancy. Our patient had received ovulation induction prior to pregnancy and there was an excessive response (16 oocytes retrieved), but she was not complicated by ovarian hyperstimulation. Pregnancy, pelvic surgery, and enlargement of the ovaries are factors which may cause ovarian torsion. The objective of this article is to present a case of OT in early pregnancy and to review its epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment. Ovarian masses complicating pregnancy accounted for an overall incidence of between 2.4% and 5.7%, as reported in the early 1990s.1 1 The detection of adnexal masses during pregnancy has become increasingly more evident in the last 20 years due to widespread use of ultrasound, the technical advancement of such equipment,2 and the delay of childbearing to an older … Epub 2009 Jun 2. Laparoscopic management of twelve consecutive cases of ovarian torsion: Four years experience 29. Electrosurgery can be used on the internal ovarian surfaces for hemostasis but should not be used near the cyst wall to minimize the risk of cyst rupture. Corpus luteum cysts or ovarian hyperstimulation were considered as the main risk factors in that period. The time of decision and laparoscopy is that of the risk of necrosis of the adnexa and, therefore, of the ovarian prognosis. The diagnosis depends mainly on the clinical manifestation, D-dimer level and imaging tests such as compression ultrasonography and computed tomography pulmonary angiogram. 6. 14. The majority of cysts are functional. Since these symptoms are similar to those of a urinary tract infection, kidney stones, appendicitis, ovarian abscess, and ectopic pregnancy, it becomes difficult for the doctor to diagnose the ovarian torsion. Turk J Emerg Med. Thus, ovarian torsion needs to be considered as a differential diagnosis. The incidence of ovarian torsion rises 5-fold during pregnancy to approximately 5 per 10,000 pregnancies. It is uncommon for a normal-sized ovary to undergo torsion. MRI findings consistent with ovarian torsion include a thick edematous pedicle and ovary, lack of enhancement, and signal intensities consistent with hemorrhage.9, Expedient surgery is a requisite treatment for ovarian torsion. Patients with actue inferior MIs should be monitored closely for preload because RV … Frozen section performed during surgery and subsequent permanent sections revealed a diagnosis of benign cystadenofibroma. Fertil Steril. Crit Ultrasound J. The right ovary appeared normal, and no free fluid was seen in the cul-de-sac. Risk factors. . Abdominal examination revealed a palpable left lowerquadrant mass to the level of the umbilicus, with voluntary guarding but no rebound or peritoneal signs. Ovarian cysts are 3 times more common in ovarian torsion cohorts than in the general population, and evidence suggests that ovarian cysts are very common in asymptomatic pregnant women but spontaneously resolve as the pregnancy progresses. Safety and timing of nonobstetric abdominal surgery in pregnancy. In an acute setting, ultrasound is a useful adjuvant to rule out ovarian torsion. Patients with actue inferior MIs should be monitored closely for preload because RV dysfunction is common. Epub 2019 May 8. Epub 2009 Jul 24. The risk is greater in pregnant women and those suffering from menopause. 2011 Dec;50(4):458-62. doi: 10.1016/j.tjog.2011.10.010.  |  Ovarian torsion is when an ovary twists around its own ligaments. 1992;58:215-217. Torsion of a ‘normal’ ovary is a rare event, mostly occurring in childhood. After untwisting the ovarian pedicle, the ovary returned to its normal color and showed no signs of hemorrhage or necrosis. Ovarian torsion in pregnancy is more common in the first trimester, and induction of ovulation is a major risk factor. Cohen SB, Oelsner G, Seidman DS, et al. . The clinical characteristics, surgical procedure, pathologic outcomes, and trimesters of pregnancy were analyzed. Adnexal masses in pregnancy: a review of eight cases undergoing surgical management. Horrigan TJ, Villarreal R, Weinstein L. Are obstetrical personnel required for intraoperative fetal monitoring during nonobstetric surgery? Physicians should be aware of a high risk of malignancy in women with an adnexal mass of over 15 cm. Initial Actions and Primary Survey. In patients undergoing ovulation induction with gonadotropins, the incidence of ovarian torsion is as high as 6%, and 16% for those who have ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. 16. In the presence of an ovarian cyst, a simple cystectomy can be performed in the absence of overt malignancy. Adnexal masses (Table) are among the most common indications for surgery during pregnancy.10 For years, the treatment of choice for ovarian torsion was salpingooophorectomy, taking special care to avoid untwisting the ovarian pedicle to prevent emboli and toxic substances related to hypoxia from entering the peripheral circulation. In patients undergoing ovulation induction with gonadotropins, the incidence of ovarian torsion is as high as 6%, and 16% for those who have ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. National Center for Biotechnology Information, Unable to load your collection due to an error, Unable to load your delegates due to an error. Physical examination showed she was diaphoretic. The clinical characteristics and sonographic findings of maternal ovarian torsion in pregnancy. When possible, the entire ovary is delivered from the abdominal cavity and surrounded by moist laparotomy pads to avoid intra-abdominal spillage of cyst contents should it rupture. If ovarian torsion is diagnosed and treated quickly, the chances of a successful recovery are quite high. When present, microscopic examination of frozen sections can help determine if intraoperative staging is required. Torsion of ovarian endometrioma in pregnancy: a case report and review of the literature. Cavun S, Goktalay G, Millington WR. Ovarian torsion during pregnancy is a rare condition, more common in the third trimester, and exceptional during the first trimester [1]. VTE after ovarian torsion-detorsion in pregnancy is an infrequent event and is more likely to occur in the first and second trimester. Pelvic examination revealed a 16-week sized uterus, with a closed cervix, and a tender 10-cm left adnexal mass. An ovarian cyst (≥25 mm simple or complex cyst) can be found in up to 5% of pregnancies, 19 with a 1–3% torsion rate. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. All rights reserved. Conclusion(s): Ovarian torsion in pregnancy is more common in the first trimester, and induction of ovulation is a major risk factor.

Pregnancy is also a risk factor for torsion. The remainder of her pregnancy was unremarkable, and she delivered a healthy infant vaginally at term. 9. (Fertil Steril 2009;92:1983–7. Another significant risk factor for ovarian torsion is the presence of cysts or abnormal masses. Your risk of developing an ovarian cyst is heightened by: • Hormonal problems. Patients frequently present with abdominal pain and non-specific symptoms.  |  Laparoscopic detorsion allows sparing of the twisted ischemic adnexa. Djavadian D, Braendle W, Jaenicke F. Laparoscopic oophoropexy for the treatment of recurrent torsion of the adnexa in pregnancy: case report and review. adnexal mass; ovarian torsion; pelvic ultrasonography; pregnancy. She was placed on progesterone therapy upon hospital discharge and eventually delivered a healthy term infant. 4 Its most common cause in pregnancy is a corpus luteum cyst, which usually regresses spontaneously by the second trimester. If this occurs, prolonged peritoneal irrigation with warmed saline will prevent peritonitis. 6 Ovarian torsion in pregnancy is usually seen in fist trimester. Regional anesthesia should be used whenever possible to decrease postoperative pain and the subsequent release of catecholamines, which can stimulate uterine contractility.11 Continued epidural infusion of narcotics for up to 72 hours is an excellent way to minimize postoperative pain.12. Immediate obstetric consultation was initiated. Up to 22% of ovarian torsions occur in pregnancy. Ovarian torsion may also result in decreasing or stopping blood flow to the ovary. Unlike in our patient, ovarian torsion occurs more often in the right adnexa, presumably because the sigmoid colon limits the mobility of the left ovary.1 Almost without exception, torsion occurs when the ovary is enlarged secondary to cysts or neoplasms. Early diagnosis of ovarian torsion by color Doppler sonography. Ovarian torsion, also sometimes termed adnexal torsion or tubo-ovarian torsion, refers to rotation of the ovary and portion of the fallopian tube on the supplying vascular pedicle.. Ovarian torsion in pregnancy is increasing in frequency due to the growing prevalence of ovarian stimulation treatment. Approximately 20% of the cases occur during pregnancy 3). This most often happens in the first trimester, usually between weeks 6-14 of gestation (Martin & Magee). This study was conducted to review the clinical manifestations, and to compare the outcome between laparoscopy and laparotomy in … Torsion of the ovary, tube or both is estimated to be responsible for only a small number of all gynaecological emergencies, but is a common diagnostic challenge in the emergency setting. She also presented with one of the most recognized risk factors for ovarian torsion: ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome with consequent cystic increase in ovarian volume (being the other main risk factors for ovarian torsion the hypermobility of the ovary, the presence of adnexal masses and pregnancy ). The hypotension evoked by visceral nociception is mediated by delta opioid receptors in the periaqueductal gray. 1991;78:249-253. There is a 5-fold increased risk of ovarian torsion during pregnancy, with an incidence of 5 per 10,000 pregnancies . 51% of the torsions occur in tumours measuring 6 – 8cm and 60% of torsions occur between 10 and 17 weeks. n ovarian torsion in our hospital from January 2012 to June 2018. The symptoms are nonspecific, and can be confused with other acute abdominal conditions such as appendicitis, ureteral or renal colic, cholecystitis and bowel obstruction [4-6]. Ovarian torsion is a gynecological emergency and is caused by the twisting of the ovary and fallopian tube on the vascular pedicle. Her blood pressure did not change in response to a bolus of intravenous fluid. Fall in blood pressure and heart rate is another common response to visceral and deep somatic nociception.7, Ultrasound is the diagnostic modality of choice and will most often reveal a unilateral ovarian enlargement that appears solid, cystic, or complex, with or without fluid collections in the pouch of Douglas. Vergote I, De Brabanter J, Fyles A, et al. The char- maternal ovarian torsion in pregnancy in terms of incidence, acteristics and clinical findings of ovarian torsion in preg- risk factors, clinical characteristics and sonographic findings. 10. MRI and ultrasound appearance of ovarian torsion in a 12 week pregnant patient. ALSO READ-Bartholin’s Glands Cyst: Causes and Symptoms. It’s unclear how often ovarian torsion occurs, … It is a gynecological emergency and requires urgent surgical intervention to prevent ovarian necrosis. 1988;158:1029-1034. eCollection 2020 Jan-Mar. Continuous epidural infusion of ropivacaine for postoperative analgesia after major abdominal surgery: comparative study with i.v. Ovarian torsion. About 10%–22% of ovarian torsion occurs in pregnant women. The patient described her pain as nonradiating, sharp, and 10 out of 10 in severity. As the woman is likely to present with nonspecific symptoms of lower abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting, ovarian torsion can often be misdiagnosed as appendicitis or preterm labour. 13. Adnexal torsion is a rare cause of acute abdominal pain during pregnancy. Adnexal torsion in menotropin-induced pregnancies. 2001;75:85-86. Other symptoms may include nausea. 2. . Rupture is inevitable in some ovarian cysts, particularly in endometriomas and functional cysts, such as luteomas. With a presumptive diagnosis of ovarian torsion, the patient was brought to the operating room, where general anesthesia and endotracheal intubation were carried out. Clinical present a tion. It remains to be determined if these precautions avoid the detrimental effect of intraoperative rupture on stage I ovarian cancer.18. The cyst was excised in a usual fashion (Figure 2). In pregnancy, because of the surrounding ligaments becoming more loose and the uterus moving the structures in the pelvis, there is an increased risk of torsion. It is frequently associated with ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization (IVF) or with ovarian masses, mainly of functional origin. Conservative management of adnexal torsion. The diagnosis depends mainly on the clinical manifestation, D-dimer level and imaging tests such as compression ultrasonography and computed tomography pulmonary angiogram. 26. Torsion of ovarian tumors occurred predominantly in the reproductive age group. Pediatric patients with torsion are more likely to have a normal ovary and their increased risk is thought to be due to an elongated utero-ovarian ligament. The pain started 6 hours earlier, waking her from sleep early in the morning. Diagnose with ultrasound and Doppler. Laboratory results were normal. Transabdominal sonography performed at the bedside visualized a normal fetus in utero with a gestational age of 16 weeks. Key Words: Ovarian torsion, multiple pregnancy, ovarian stimulation, ultrasound-guided transabdominal cyst aspiration Ovarian torsion is responsible for %3% of all gynecologic emergen-cies (1–6). Djavadian D, Braendle W, Jaenicke F. Laparoscopic oophoropexy for the treatment of recurrent torsion of the adnexa in pregnancy: case report and review. Although rare, ovarian torsion is a serious but treatable risk of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Chang SD, Yen CF, Lo LM, Lee CL, Liang CC. The risk of any surgery to the pregnancy will depend on the gestational age. 19-21 The risk of torsion appears to decrease with increasing gestation, 21 is unusual after 20 weeks 22 and becomes harder to diagnose. Approximately 20% of the cases occur during pregnancy 1. . Thirty-three pregnant and 72 nonpregnant patients diagnosed with surgically proven ovarian torsion were assessed during the study period. Ovarian torsion in the third trimester of pregnancy leading to a midline laparotomy and caesarean section for the delivery of a preterm baby is an uncommon event. Euvolemic hypoosmolar hyponatraemia may be due to hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency or SIADH. Because the mass extended above the umbilicus, laparotomy was performed instead of laparoscopy. Other risk factors for the development of ovarian torsion … Ovarian torsion has a bimodal age distribution occurring mainly in young women (15-30 years) and post-menopausal women. The ovary does not require precise reconstruction as was thought in the past. pregnancy, the risk of complications such as torsion, rupture,and infection increases in dermoid cysts.4 Among women gynecological surgeons, the most appropriate surgery for the treatment of dermoid cysts is a controversial issue.5,6 This study reports a case of torsion of a large ovarian dermoid cyst in thesecond trimester of pregnancy and its management. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a serious complication of assisted reproductive technology (ART) for which hospital admission is required in severe cases to prevent life-threatening complications or for treatment of ovarian torsion. Whether there are differences in the ultrasonic features and histological diagnosis of ovarian torsion among pregnant and non-pregnant women is still unclear, but a better characterization of ovarian torsion may be helpful … Van Voorhis BJ, Schwaiger J, Syrop CH, et al. In the left adnexa, a large, 11 cm x 6 cm simple cyst was seen arising from the left ovary. The decision to proceed to surgery during pregnancy is somewhat complex, since the well-being of both mother and fetus must be taken into account. The presence of arterial flow within the ovary suggest either an incomplete torsion, or a torsion-detorsion scenario. Up to 22% of ovarian torsions occur in pregnancy. We report a case of ovarian torsion in pregnancy. 15. NLM The patient was not on ovarian stimulation treatments. The thin ovarian capsule is carefully incised, usually with a scalpel. This can cause severe pain, nausea, and abdominal tenderness. She had no history of recent illnesses, urinary complaints, or treatment for infertility. One study showed a diagnostic accuracy of ultrasonography as 74.6%, with abnormal ovarian blood flow and presence of free fluid as the most diagnostic. Keywords: Likewise, if the "chocolate" contents of an endometrioma or the fluid content of a potentially malignant cyst spills within the peritoneal cavity, prolonged irrigation with warmed saline is judicious. Trop Doct. 19. NIH Zweizig S, Perron J, Grubb D, et al. Regardless of rupture, all cysts should be completely opened after removal and the internal surface of the cyst wall examined for excrescences. Ahot bath did not relieve the symptoms. Lee CH, Raman S, Sivanesaratnam V. Torsion of ovarian tumors: a clinicopathological study. Ovarian torsion classically occurs unilaterally in a pathologically enlarged ovary (e.g., due to the presence of cyst ) because the irregularity of the ovary is thought to create a fulcrum around which the … “The ovary is attached to the uterus and to the walls of the pelvis,” explains Dr. Risk factors for ovarian torsion are pregnancy, ovulation induction during fertility treatment, and ovarian masses (especially if >5cm). Pre-menarchal girls have an increased risk of ovarian torsion of normally appearing ovaries, compared to women in the reproductive age who also have normal-appearing ovaries. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. . Cocaine blocks extraneuronal uptake of norepinephrine by the pregnant human uterus. 8. 2009 Dec;92(6):1983-7.doi: 10.1016/j.fertnstert.2008.09.028. HHS Jayr C, Beaussier M, Gustafsson U, et al. To find the risk factors of torsion and malignancy for adnexal tumors during pregnancy. However, some authors reported cases of ovarian torsion in second or third trimester and suggested that persisting ovarian cysts as the main risk factor [2] , [3] . [1,2] Most common cause in pregnancy is a corpus luteum cyst, which usually regresses spontaneously by the second trimester. Symptoms typically include pelvic pain on one side. 2009 Oct;146(2):116-20. doi: 10.1016/j.ejogrb.2009.05.002. © 2021 MJH Life Sciences™ and HCPLive - Clinical news for connected physicians. Ovarian torsion is an infrequent, but important, cause of acute abdomino-pelvic pain in women. The risk increases with disrupted blood flow to the ovaries, which occurs when the veins supplying the pelvic organs become compressed, for example during pregnancy, or when the colon is distended. On entry into the abdominal cavity with a midline incision, a congested 14-cm left ovary was found to be twisted around its ovarian pedicle 1.5 rotations (Figure 1). In the second or third trimester, the combined size of the pregnant uterus and enlarged ovary usually make laparotomy the approach of choice, despite the associated increased pain and risk of wound complications. Diagnosis can usually be made on the basis of the characteristic clinical presentation in conjunction with ultrasound evidence of a unilaterally enlarged adnexal mass. Ovarian torsion is an uncommon cause of acute abdominal pain in nonpregnant women but is more common during pregnancy. Ovarian cysts and torsion in assisted reproduction and pregnancy. Malignant tumors occur in less than 6% of cases.2 Serous cystadenofibromas, as in our patient, are relatively common, accounting for approximately 8% of ovarian neoplasms.3, The incidence of ovarian torsion rises 5-fold during pregnancy to approximately 5 per 10,000 pregnancies.4 Its most common cause in pregnancy is a corpus luteum cyst, which usually regresses spontaneously by the second trimester.5 Ovarian torsion, therefore, occurs most frequently in the first trimester, occasionally in the second, and rarely in the third.6, Ovarian torsion can sometimes be difficult to diagnose in pregnancy. Hibbard LT. Adnexal torsion. 2009 Oct;92(4):1496.e9-1496.e13. Would you like email updates of new search results? 1993;38:465-468.

Feng JL, Zheng J, Lei T, Xu YJ, Pang H, Xie HN. Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! Pregnancy also results in an increased risk of torsion due to an enlarged corpus luteum. Risks of torsion and malignancy are not directly proportional to increasing mass size in pregnant women. A bedside ED ultrasound showed an enlarged edematous right ovary with a large cyst, but without flow on color Doppler. Diagnose with ultrasound and Doppler. Chapron C, Capella-Allouc S, Dubuisson JB. The presence of arterial flow within the ovary suggest either an incomplete torsion, or a torsion … Color flow Doppler was not available. The most frequent nonfunctional neoplasms are serous or mucinous cystadenomas, benign cystic teratomas ("dermoids"), and ovarian fibromas. We report a very rare case of bilateral ovarian torsion complicating SOHSS in a singleton pregnancy, which was successfully managed by laparoscopic detorsion. 1. Background: A 28-year-old woman presented to the emergency department during her first pregnancy with acute onset of excruciating pain in the left lower-abdominal quadrant. Objective: Diagnosing OT in early pregnancy can be challenging. In one study, preterm labor occurred in 26% of women who had surgery during the second trimester and in 82% of those who had surgery during the third trimester.10, Several approaches can minimize the risk of premature labor. Because of the serious potential consequences Risk Factors, Symptoms and Treatment of Ovarian Torsion in for maternal and neonatal health, the possibility of heterotopic pregnancy Premenarchal Girls: The 12-Year Experience of One Center should be considered with high risk pregnancies. have an increased risk of ovarian torsion of normally appearing ovaries, compared to women in the reproductive age who also have normal-appearing ovaries.
