Appropriate surgical management of ovarian endometrioma: excision or drainage?

Abstract : Endometriosis negatively impacts the lives of countless women around the world. When medical management fails to improve quality of life often women are left making a decision whether or not to proceed with surgery. With endometriomas, patient's surgical options include complete surgical removal or drainage via laparoscopy. Here, we review the literature to discuss both techniques, excision and drainage of endometriomas, and what the research supports for endometrioma management.
