VIDEO | Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy for a dermoid cyst at 26 weeks gestation

This patient had a large benign cyst diagnosed at the beginning of her third trimester. Laparoscopic surgery can be safely accomplished during pregnancy, but it becomes increasingly difficult the larger the baby and uterus grow. In this case, we were able to remove her cyst at her advanced gestation with laparoscopy and without rupturing (breaking) the cyst.
