A decade of pelvic pain and infertility: A case report of an unexpected intraoperative discovery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Introduction: Retained surgical objects can impact quality of life as it relates to chronic pelvic pain and reproductive health. Case report: A 39-year-old G1P0010 with chronic pelvic pain and infertility attributed to pelvic adhesions and bilateral hydrosalpinx caused by an 18-cm surgical drain left 10 years prior. Conclusions: Our case highlights the significance of thoughtful perioperative care as well as special considerations when approaching patients with pelvic pain and infertility with histories of abdominopelvic surgery.
