Robotic-assisted ovarian transposition before radiation.


One of the treatments of malignancy of low genital tract is local pelvic radiation. However, in premenopausal it is associated with premature ovarian failure. Ovarian transposition is a technique to avoid radiation damage to the ovaries. The authors report robotic-assisted ovarian transposition in a 39-year-old woman with stage II-b cervical cancer. The ovaries were transposed to the ipsilateral paracolic gutter and secured to the anterior-lateral peritoneum using a disposable fixation device.
