Urogynaecology / Vaginal hysterectomy

Ovarian remnant

Ovarian remnant following vaginal hysterectomy

Success story

Molly was 29 when she underwent a vaginal hysterectomy and bilateral oophorectomy in 2004. In 2007 she presented with lower abdominal pain and weight loss. A diagnostic laparoscopy showed adhesions and a possible ovarian remnant in the pelvis, and so she underwent a laparoscopic adhesiolysis and left salpingo oophorectomy. Following this, her symptoms resolved. Molly alleged that her left ovary was not totally removed in 2004, resulting in her symptoms and further surgery, but PMS Expert Report concluded that there was no evidence of negligence. The standard of surgery was good at all times, and there was no evidence of an ovarian remnant in the final pathology report. The case was dropped.
