  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy in terms of spillage risk and fertility-sparing of mesial incision for laparoscopic dermoid cystectomy.

Condition Intervention
Dermoid Ovarian Cysts Procedure: Laparoscopic dermoid cystectomy

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Mesial Incision for Laparoscopic Dermoid Cystectomy: a New Safe and Fertility-sparing Technique

Further study details as provided by Fulvio Zullo, University Magna Graecia:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Spillage of intracystic content rate [ Time Frame: Intraoperative ]
  • Operative times [ Time Frame: Immediately at the end of the laparoscopy ]
    Operative times will be assessed when surgeons will end the laparoscopy, specifically when he will end the suture of the last skin scar.

  • Chemical peritonitis rate [ Time Frame: 1 week after surgery ]
  • Intraoperative blood loss [ Time Frame: The morning after laparoscopy ]
    The first patient blood sample will be taken the morning of the surgery, at h 8 am. The day after, it will be taken the second blood sample. Intraoperative blood loss wil be calculated by deducting Hb values of the second hemocrome by the first one.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Ovarian reserve [ Time Frame: 3 months and 1 year after surgery ]

Enrollment: 67
Study Start Date: September 2004
Study Completion Date: January 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Laparoscopic mesial incision Procedure: Laparoscopic dermoid cystectomy
Laparoscopy will be performed by pneumoperitoneum with CO2. A complete pelvic examination will be performed to exclude malignant disease. Ovarian capsule will be incised by scissors on mesial side in study group and antimesial side in control group. After cleavage plane identification the cyst enucleation will be completed by atraumatic dissection.
Active Comparator: Laparoscopic antimesial incision Procedure: Laparoscopic dermoid cystectomy
Laparoscopy will be performed by pneumoperitoneum with CO2. A complete pelvic examination will be performed to exclude malignant disease. Ovarian capsule will be incised by scissors on mesial side in study group and antimesial side in control group. After cleavage plane identification the cyst enucleation will be completed by atraumatic dissection.
