PURPOSE: To ascertain the complication rate associated with ultrasound (US)-guided puncture of gynecologic lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1986 and 1992, 878 transabdominal and 122 transvaginal US-guided punctures of gynecologic lesions were performed in 893 patients. Most of the procedures were performed in adnexal cysts (n = 838); the rest, in solid tumors (n = 66), mixed tumors (n = 56), or lymphoceles, abscesses, or fluid collections (n = 40). No anesthesia or antibiotic prophylaxis was routinely used. RESULTS: No life-threatening complication was recorded. Early complications (defined as complications that occurred within 24 hours after puncture) were recorded in 31 patients and consisted mainly of transient vagal symptoms or pain. Short-term complications (within 5 days after puncture) were recorded in 10 patients, six of whom required surgery. CONCLUSION: US-guided puncture of gynecologic lesions is safe in selected patients. Complication rates depend on the type of lesion and are very high in dermoid cysts, which should not be punctured, and extremely low in serous cysts, solid tumors, and mixed tumors

Abstract

PURPOSE: To ascertain the complication rate associated with ultrasound (US)-guided puncture of gynecologic lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1986 and 1992, 878 transabdominal and 122 transvaginal US-guided punctures of gynecologic lesions were performed in 893 patients. Most of the procedures were performed in adnexal cysts (n = 838); the rest, in solid tumors (n = 66), mixed tumors (n = 56), or lymphoceles, abscesses, or fluid collections (n = 40). No anesthesia or antibiotic prophylaxis was routinely used. RESULTS: No life-threatening complication was recorded. Early complications (defined as complications that occurred within 24 hours after puncture) were recorded in 31 patients and consisted mainly of transient vagal symptoms or pain. Short-term complications (within 5 days after puncture) were recorded in 10 patients, six of whom required surgery. CONCLUSION: US-guided puncture of gynecologic lesions is safe in selected patients. Complication rates depend on the type of lesion and are very high in dermoid cysts, which should not be punctured, and extremely low in serous cysts, solid tumors, and mixed tumors
