Abstract:   (1873 Views)
Seventeen patients with polycystic ovarian disease (peOD) were treated by laparoscopic ovarian electrocauterization (LEC). Ten were admitted to hospital for infertility, four for hirsutism, two for severe scalp hair loss, and one for abnormal uterine bleeding. Four of the patients were virgins. We had 50% (5 of 10) pregnancies and 88% (15 of 17) showing a decline in testosterone levels after this operation. 87% of the patients showed regularity in menstruation. 80% (8 of 10) of infertile patients ovulated after LEe. We think the use of LEe for the treatment of severe scalp hair loss and in virginal peo patients are new ideas in our article. The rate of pelvic adhesion after LEe was 0% in our series. A 6-to-24 month follow-up showed that many of these patients had normal clinical and laboratory findings.
