Dr.Cyriac Pappachan Receives Best Poster Award

Dr.Cyriac Pappachan received First Prize for Poster Presentation for his poster entitled ‘Minimally Invasive Management of Ovarian Torsion’ at YUVA FOGSI South Zone 2019, held at Coimbatore. The poster mentions that the Ovarian Torsion involves partial or complete rotation of the ovary on its ligamentous supports often leading to interruption of its blood supply and in some cases necrosis. It has been pointed out that ovarian torsion is a known cause of acute pelvic pain mostly common. It occurs in the prepubertal and postmenopausal women. Delay in diagnosis and management of Ovarian Torsion will compromise ovarian function and fertility. Prompt diagnosis is paramount to conserve ovarian and tubal function. The study concludes that laparoscopic approach can be the preferred route in all cases of adnexal torsion. Conservative approach to surgical management in the form of detorsion with or without oopheropexy should be attempted before oophorectomy. Whether or not to perform oopheropexy at the time of detorsion of normal adnexa is less clear. In recurrent torsion, oopheropexy (Hotdog in Bun Technique) with non-absorbable suture is shown to reduce recurrence rates.
