STUDY OBJECTIVE: To describe the effects of laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) surgery performed over 3 consecutive years to treat adnexal disease and to report patient perioperative outcomes. DESIGN: Retrospective clinical study (Canadian Task Force classification III). SETTING: Tertiary care academic medical center. PATIENTS: Women undergoing LESS because of a benign gynecologic indication, from January 2009 through December 2011. INTERVENTIONS: Women with benign adnexal disease ≤10 cm underwent LESS surgery through a single 1.5- to 2.0-cm umbilical incision. Intraoperative and postoperative outcomes were carefully recorded, including the need for postoperative rescue analgesia. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: One hundred twenty-five patients were enrolled. Median patient age was 49 years, and median body mass index was 23. Surgical procedures included unilateral or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and unilateral or bilateral cyst enucleation. Median operative time was 48 minutes. Pain control was optimal, with an average visual analog score of 4/10. Both patients and surgeons were highly satisfied with the cosmetic result, and the cosmetic visual analog score was 9/10 at discharge and at 30 days after surgery. The number of women who underwent unilateral or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy increased progressively and significantly yearly over the study period (16 vs 23 vs 40; p = .001). Median operative time for unilateral or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy increased significantly from 2009 to 2010 and 2011 (34 vs 45 and 44 minutes; p = .001), together with median BMI (23 vs 23 vs 25; p = .04). CONCLUSION: LESS is a desirable surgical approach in patients with simple adnexal disease.

Abstract

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To describe the effects of laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) surgery performed over 3 consecutive years to treat adnexal disease and to report patient perioperative outcomes. DESIGN: Retrospective clinical study (Canadian Task Force classification III). SETTING: Tertiary care academic medical center. PATIENTS: Women undergoing LESS because of a benign gynecologic indication, from January 2009 through December 2011. INTERVENTIONS: Women with benign adnexal disease ≤10 cm underwent LESS surgery through a single 1.5- to 2.0-cm umbilical incision. Intraoperative and postoperative outcomes were carefully recorded, including the need for postoperative rescue analgesia. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: One hundred twenty-five patients were enrolled. Median patient age was 49 years, and median body mass index was 23. Surgical procedures included unilateral or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and unilateral or bilateral cyst enucleation. Median operative time was 48 minutes. Pain control was optimal, with an average visual analog score of 4/10. Both patients and surgeons were highly satisfied with the cosmetic result, and the cosmetic visual analog score was 9/10 at discharge and at 30 days after surgery. The number of women who underwent unilateral or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy increased progressively and significantly yearly over the study period (16 vs 23 vs 40; p = .001). Median operative time for unilateral or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy increased significantly from 2009 to 2010 and 2011 (34 vs 45 and 44 minutes; p = .001), together with median BMI (23 vs 23 vs 25; p = .04). CONCLUSION: LESS is a desirable surgical approach in patients with simple adnexal disease.
