Abstract :

In a descriptive study in France a few years ago based on histological data showed that nearly 75% of operated cysts are organic, 25% are functional, and 1 to 4% of cysts thought to be benign will prove to be malignant. The majority of functional cysts are seen at the time of genital activity. They can also be seen after menopause where they represent 13 to 31% of ovarian cysts operated (NP3). Our objective was to evaluate the characteristics of ovarian cysts in postmenopausal women; its treatment and surgical approach. Retrospective study, includes all ovarian cysts in postmenopausal women who were operated at our center from 2012-2015. In the laparoscopic approach group only the 4% of the surgeries were classified as complex, whereas the 85% were moderate difficulty and 13% simple surgeries. We encourage the use of laparoscopic approach as first option in this pathology to reduce the morbidity and length of hospital stay in these patients.
