Abstract

The incidence of adnexal masses in pregnancy is estimated to be 1% to 4%. In select cases, surgical intervention is required. Recent studies have demonstrated that laparoscopy during pregnancy is safe and confers many advantages over laparotomy. Herein we present a series of nine cases collected prospectively that demonstrate the feasibility, safety, and putative benefits of laparoendoscopic single-site surgery for treatment of adnexal masses in pregnant women.
