Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Authors report 85 cases with purulent pelvic inflammation, treated surgically. In 67 cases primarily laparoscopy, in 18 cases laparotomy was performed, and, concomitantly in all the cases, broad spectrum antibiotics were administered. In 47 cases (55%) removal of the inflammatory source and lysis of adhesions followed by lavage could be accomplished by laparoscopy. In 20 cases conversion to laparotomy was inevitable. Among the cases, successfully managed by laparoscopy, 45 patients were afebrile on day 1, while 2 patients only on day 3 following the surgery. The mean hospitalization after laparoscopy was 2.08 (2-4) days. Our data support the view that laparoscopy, applied in conjunction with appropriate antibiotic treatment, is a safe and effective therapeutic option for early phase purulent pelvic inflammation.
