5) Other studies demonstrated a trend toward more tubo-ovarian
abscesses, which often require surgical intervention in HIV-infected women with pelvic inflammatory disease.
A hysterectomy was performed, and a tubo-ovarian
abscess was removed.
PID can necessitate hysterectomy and can also lead to tubo-ovarian
abscesses, tubal occlusion and infertility, and tubal damage that can predispose to ectopic pregnancy.
At surgery a right tubo-ovarian
abscess was found and a normal appendix removed.
Laparoscopic findings included rectal lesions and tubo-ovarian
adhesions; extensive disease of the peritoneum, ovaries and surrounding structures; and rectovaginal, bowel and ureteric endometriosis.
a patient has tubo-ovarian
abscess or a weakened immune system
adhesions appeared bilaterally, more prominent on the left.
A third patient had a tubo-ovarian
abscess 11 days after surgery; she had a history of sexually transmitted diseases and substance abuse.
When complicated by a tubo-ovarian
abscess, inflammatory changes are seen in the surrounding tissue.
abscesses can also contain fluid-fluid levels and echogemc pus and can produce acoustic shadowing due to gas.
In addition, the girls who needed hospitalization after January 1998 were 24% less likely to have a tubo-ovarian
abscess compared with the girls with delayed hospitalization before 1998.
