What is pelvic surgery?
Doctors use many imaging techniques to observe the pelvic anomalies. These techniques include ultrasound, CT scanning and MRI. Your doctor may use pelvic laparoscopy after use of noninvasive options. The procedure can provide more details when the data collected by these methods fails to provide a definitive diagnosis.
Your doctor may use pelvic laparoscopy to investigate and treat cases affecting the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and other organs in the pelvic region.
Why pelvic surgery is applied:
- Determine the cause of pelvic pain
- It is possible to examine an anomaly such as a tissue mass, ovarian cyst or tumor found in another imaging study.
- To confirm the presence of endometriosis, a condition in which cells from the cervix emerge outside the uterine cavity
- Diagnosis of a pelvic inflammatory disease
- Examine your fallopian tube for obstructions or ectopic pregnancy
- Investigate situations that may cause ınfertiliteye
- Observe the degree of ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer or cervical cancer
- Your doctor can biopsy abnormal tissue during pelvic laparoscopy. They may also use the procedure to diagnose and treat certain conditions.
Using the Video Monitor as a guide, your doctor can do the following:
- Get a tissue sample for the biopsy
- Eradicate scar tissue or abnormal tissue from endometriosis
- Repair of a damaged uterus
- Repairing damage to your ovaries or fallopian tubes
- Ectopic pregnancy Remove
- Performing appendectomy
- Perform hysterectomy or take uterine
- To perform a pipe ligation with sterilisation of your fallopian tubes
- Removing the lymph nodes affected by pelvic cancers
Preparation for pelvic surgery
It is usually prepared for laparoscopy as you would for other surgical procedures. Some medications may affect the outcome of your laparoscopy. Therefore, if you are getting any of the following, your doctor may give you specific instructions:
- Anticoagulants or blood thinners
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) including Aspirin or ibuprofen
- Medications that affect blood clotting
- Herbal or dietary supplements
- Let your doctor know when you think you’re a patron or pregnant. This will prevent your fetus from being harmed during the procedure.
Your doctor may request an additional imaging study, such as ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI prior to surgery. The data in this imaging study can help them better understand the anomalies they are investigating. The imaging results also increase effectiveness by providing your doctor with a visual guide to your pelvic area. You cannot eat or drink anything (including water) at least eight hours before Laparoscopiden. If you smoke, you should try to quit.
A pelvic surgery can be done in a hospital, but it is usually done in a polyclinic. You will be asked to go to the hospital outfit before surgery. An intravenous line is placed in your hand or arm. In most cases you will get general anesthesia. It allows you to stay in a deep sleep during this process and not feel any pain. In other cases, you will receive local anesthesia. This type of anesthesia prevents you from feeling pain in the pelvic area during the procedure. But it doesn’t put you in a state of sleep. When your doctor injecting local anesthesia in your pelvis, you may feel a burning or burning sensation. Your doctor will make a small cut that is about half an inch long in your belly after the anesthesia takes effect. In order to expand the cavity with carbon dioxide, a narrow tube-like tool called “cannula” is placed in your abdominal cavity. This opens up a place for your doctor to work in that area. It also provides a clearer view. Then the laparoscope will be cut close to your belly by means of incision. Close to the pubic hairline, the size of four streams is cut. These segments provide space for additional cannulas and other tools that are needed to implement the process. Your doctor may also place a uterine manipulator in your uterus. This will help make the pelvic organs visible. Your doctor will remove the vehicle and gas from your body and close all your cuts after the operation is complete. Bandages will be placed on the seams used to close your incisions.
