Abstract

BACKGROUND: Adnexal torsion can be a life-threatning condition in pregnancy, while the risk of late diagnosis is increased, in second and third trimester in particular. Laparoscopy is an effective approach in diagnosis and treatment of adnexal torsion. However, entry to abdomen may be challenging in more advanced pregnancies.
