bilateral oophorectomy

bilateral oophorectomy

The removal of two or more ovaries.

Indications
• Prophylaxis—women at increased risk of ovarian cancer (e.g., those with high-risk BRCA1 mutations), which reduces the risk of ovarian cancer and breast cancer. In women with high-risk BRCA2 mutations, oophorectomy is less clearly beneficial.
• Endometriosis—as a last resort.
• Sterilisation—rarely performed in practice.
