Preoperative assessment of unilocular adnexal cysts by transvaginal ultrasonography: a comparison between ultrasonographic morphologic imaging and histopathologic diagnosis.
TLDR
Serial ultrasonographic follow-up should be the standard procedure with unilocular echo-free cysts <50 mm in diameter, in cysts with a mean diameter of >50 mm, papillary formations or solid parts may be missed by transvaginal ultrasonography.
Transvaginal ultrasound-guided aspiration of benign ovarian cysts
TLDR
The results of the study reveal that transvaginal ultrasound-guided aspiration of benign ovarian cysts is a simple, safe and effective procedure.
Histopathological diagnoses of adnexal masses: which parameters are relevant in preoperative assessment?
TLDR
In the light of the results, patient age, menopausal status, blood levels of Ca 125, CEA and ESR, as well as calculated RMI, can predict the nature of adnexal masses, but none of the examined parameters can accurately determine the exact histopathological diagnosis of the ad Nexal tumor.
Histopathological diagnoses of adnexal masses: which parameters are relevant in preoperative assessment?
TLDR
In the light of the results, patient age, menopausal status, blood levels of Ca 125, CEA and ESR, as well as calculated RMI, can predict the nature of adnexal masses, but none of the examined parameters can accurately determine the exact histopathological diagnosis of the ad Nexal tumor.
Diagnosis and management of simple ovarian cysts: an audit.
TLDR
In this retrospective study, ovarian cysts over 30 mm in diameter were detected in 90 women and the final diagnosis was ovarian neoplasm in 13 and hydrosalpinx in two women who had a malignancy.
Recommendation Patterns among Gynaecologists and Radiologists for Adnexal Masses on Ultrasound.
The Use of Ultrasound to Assess the Morphology of Ovarian Tumours
TLDR
This chapter will discuss some of the problems that appear at a clinical practice when using B-mode ultrasound and will also try to explain the significance of certain morphological features of ovarian tumours.

Neoplastic or nonneoplastic ovarian cyst? The role of cytology.
TLDR
In cases of a three-parameter indication of a neoplasm, the diagnosis may be taken as definitive, and surgery should be performed, and in the case of contradictory diagnoses, surgical intervention is required on a precautionary basis.
Cytology of benign cystic uterine adnexal masses.
TLDR
The findings from a cytologic examination of 26 surgically removed cystic adnexal masses aspirated with a 22-gauge needle were correlated with the histopathologic findings, and the vast majority of aspirated samples (91%) contained benign cells.
Comparison of endovaginal ultrasound and cytological evaluation of cystic ovarian tumors.
TLDR
It is concluded that cytological evaluation after irrigation of a cystic ovarian tumor does not significantly increase accuracy in diagnosing malignancy compared to endovaginal ultrasound.
Cytology of nonneoplastic cysts of the ovary
TLDR
An understanding of the cytologic features of nonneoplastic ovarian cysts may encourage aspiration as opposed to surgical ovarian removal, particularly in women of child‐bearing age who wish to preserve their fertility.
DNA ploidy of ovarian and adnexal cyst fluid. A useful adjunct to cytology.
TLDR
DNA ploidy analysis of cells derived from ovarian and adnexal cyst aspirates is feasible and relatively specific and has a relatively high negative predictive value, but nondiploidy should suggest consideration of a malignancy diagnosis.
The ‘simple’ ovarian cyst: aspirate or operate?
TLDR
Ultrasound‐guided ovarian cyst puncture would appear to be a valid alternative to surgery for carefully selected benign ovarian cysts especially when the cyst is considered not to contain blood.
The role of sonographically guided aspiration in the clinical management of ovarian cysts
TLDR
It is concluded that FNA might be proposed in young women with a unilocular ovarian cyst to avoid a surgical procedure and in postmenopausalWomen with aunilocular cystic mass 5 cm or less, FNA may be considered as an important step in the diagnosis.
The Postmenopausal Adnexal Mass: Correlation Between Ultrasonic and Pathologic Findings
TLDR
One hundred two postmenopausal women underwent ultrasonographic evaluation of adnexal masses before surgery and abdominal ultrasonography had a positive predictive value and a negative predictive value for predicting malignancy in ovarian tumors.
Is avoidance of surgery possible in patients with perimenopausal ovarian tumors using transvaginal ultrasound and duplex color Doppler sonography?
TLDR
Due to the high percentage of unsatisfactory cytologic results with cyst aspiration, vaginal and color Doppler sonography seemed more efficient in distinguishing between benignity and malignancy.
Fine‐needle aspiration cytology of cystic ovarian lesions
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that the majority of cystic ovarian lesions can be diagnosed accurately on cytology, which is important for women who want to retain their fertility and in the clinical management of women with neoplastic lesions.
