OBJECTIVE To evaluate follicle loss in ovarian tissue after laparoscopic excision by the stripping technique in endometriomas versus benign nonendometriotic ovarian cysts. METHODS Cystectomy samples obtained from 127 ovaries from 104 patients (mean age, 29.05 ± 05 years; range, 19-40 years) by laparoscopic excision (61 endometriomas and 66 benign nonendometriotic cysts) were evaluated for follicle loss. The samples including normal ovarian tissue were graded on a semiquantitative scale from 0… CONTINUE READING
