Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Ovarian function after surgery [ Time Frame: within 6 months after surgery ]
  • Operative time [ Time Frame: 1 day (Immediately after surgery) ]
  • Intraoperative blood loss [ Time Frame: During surgery ]
  • Postoperative drainage volume [ Time Frame: within 2 days after surgery ]
  • Postoperative drainage duration [ Time Frame: within 1 week after surgery ]
  • Length of postoperative stay [ Time Frame: within 1 month after surgery ]
