Study Objective. To verify the value, feasibility, and reliability of transvaginal hydrolaparoscopic ovarian drilling using the bipolar VersaPoint system to treat clomiphene-resistant, anovulatory women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Design. Prospective clinical study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). Setting. University teaching hospital. Patients. Twenty-eight women. Intervention. Transvaginal hydrolaparoscopic ovarian drilling using the bipolar VersaPoint spring electrode. Measurements and Main Results. After the surgical procedure, ovulation occurred spontaneously in 66. 7% of women. Thirteen pregnancies occurred; eight were spontaneous, and four were achieved after induction of ovulation with clomiphene citrate and one after stimulation with gonadotropins. In 21 women whose infertility was due exclusively to anovulation, the cumulative pregnancy rate was 38% at 3 months and 76% at 6 months. No ovarian hyperstimulation or abortion occurred. The single complication was bleeding from an ovary that required conversion to laparoscopy. Conclusion. Transvaginal hydrolaparoscopic ovarian drilling with the bipolar VersaPoint system is a useful therapeutic option in these women.

Abstract

Study Objective. To verify the value, feasibility, and reliability of transvaginal hydrolaparoscopic ovarian drilling using the bipolar VersaPoint system to treat clomiphene-resistant, anovulatory women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Design. Prospective clinical study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). Setting. University teaching hospital. Patients. Twenty-eight women. Intervention. Transvaginal hydrolaparoscopic ovarian drilling using the bipolar VersaPoint spring electrode. Measurements and Main Results. After the surgical procedure, ovulation occurred spontaneously in 66. 7% of women. Thirteen pregnancies occurred; eight were spontaneous, and four were achieved after induction of ovulation with clomiphene citrate and one after stimulation with gonadotropins. In 21 women whose infertility was due exclusively to anovulation, the cumulative pregnancy rate was 38% at 3 months and 76% at 6 months. No ovarian hyperstimulation or abortion occurred. The single complication was bleeding from an ovary that required conversion to laparoscopy. Conclusion. Transvaginal hydrolaparoscopic ovarian drilling with the bipolar VersaPoint system is a useful therapeutic option in these women.
