Operative laparoscopy compared with laparotomy has been established as the gold standard surgical approach in treating ovarian cysts. However, the safety of a laparoscopic cystectomy has been questioned in what has to do with the subsequent damage to the ovarian reserve of the operated ovary. One of the best available methods to determine ovarian reserve, due to its biochemical and pathological characteristics is anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH). With this study, we are reviewing currently available studies examining the effect laparoscopic operations have on AMH levels.
