Ovarian tissue inadvertently excised along with endometriomas was associated with the presence of pericystic fibrosis and serum levels of CA-125, representing the only clinical parameter for predicting follicle loss before surgery. A consecutive series of 91 ovarian endometriotic cysts were studied, and an inverse relationship between serum CA-125 and the thickness of the fibrotic tissue of the endometrioma capsule was demonstrated.

Abstract

Ovarian tissue inadvertently excised along with endometriomas was associated with the presence of pericystic fibrosis and serum levels of CA-125, representing the only clinical parameter for predicting follicle loss before surgery. A consecutive series of 91 ovarian endometriotic cysts were studied, and an inverse relationship between serum CA-125 and the thickness of the fibrotic tissue of the endometrioma capsule was demonstrated.
