Abstract

In an attempt to preserve ovarian function, we managed 58 women with adnexal torsion by laparoscopic detorsion. Follow-up ultrasound examinations were performed on 54 of the women. Follicular development was evident in 49 of 52 (94.2%) women with normal-sized ovaries. We conclude that ovarian function returns in the majority of women with adnexal torsion managed conservatively.
