METHODS We performed a retrospective study including 35 women who had undergone endometrioma cystectomy, using an ovarian tissue sparing procedure. In total 38 specimens were studied by three pathologists as three women presented bilateral localizations, and all cyst diameters measured at least 30 mm… CONTINUE READING
