During the years 1979 to 1983, 329 patients underwent hysterectomy with preservation of one or both ovaries. Six patients were evaluated for postoperative chronic lower abdominal pain and dyspareunia. Findings at laparotomy confirmed the diagnosis of residual ovarian syndrome in all six. Relief of symptoms was observed after adnexectomy in four, oophorectomy in one patient and ovariopexy in one. The literature concerning this rare complication after hysterectomy is briefly reviewed.
