Abstract

Benign cystic teratoma (dermoid cyst) was managed laparoscopically in 25 cases (16 cyst excisions and 9 oophorectomies). Surgical procedures to avoid spill during ovarian cystectomy and oophorectomy were developed (14 cases). This series demonstrates a gradual evolution in surgical technique. Surgical outcome was good in all cases, complications were rare, and the procedure required a hospital stay less than 24 hours.
