Ovarian cyst torsion is a rare but urgent condition in gynecological practice. Complete and partial torsion is distinguished, as a result of which ischemia occurs in the ovaries and their supporting structures. As soon as the doctor suspects and diagnoses this condition, it is necessary to carry out an emergency operation to restore blood flow.
An ovarian cyst is a sac-like, fluid-filled formation in or on the ovary. The content of the cyst can be hemorrhagic, serous, purulent or of another nature, depending on the etiology.
In the structure of the cyst, anatomical and surgical legs are distinguished. Anatomical consists of the vessels and nerve trunks of the ovary, its mesentery, its own and the supporting ligaments of the ovary. The surgical pedicle is formed only in the case of torsion and can additionally affect the fallopian tube, omentum, and even bowel loops.
Torsion types and symptoms
1. A twist can be complete or partial.
2. With complete torsion, the following complex of symptoms can be observed:
3. Sharp, severe abdominal pain
4. Drop in blood pressure
5. Nausea, vomiting
6. Urinary incontinence
8. Tachycardia, i.e. rapid heartbeat
9. Pallor of mucous membranes and skin
With incomplete torsion, the picture may not be as dramatic, but this can dull vigilance and the patient does not turn to specialists. Pains come and go. Especially such smoothed symptoms are typical for young patients or elderly women. However, this condition is also unfavorable and requires examination by a gynecologist.
Cyst torsion treatment
Treatment, especially with full, developing rapidly developing torsion is only surgical.
Currently, advanced endoscopic organ-preserving technologies have been developed. Under the control of ultrasound, the gynecological surgeon straightens the torsion, thereby restoring the ovarian circulation and restoring its function. The cyst is removed.
If the cyst has reached a large size, the patient turned to specialists late, then the formation is removed through an incision in the abdominal wall.
Surgical interventions are carried out under anesthesia in a hospital setting.
To avoid this, it is extremely important to visit a gynecologist regularly, at least once a year, and conduct a thorough examination of the reproductive system.
