|Title:||Prophylactic oophorectomy of benign uterine disease in premenopausal women: 11 years review.|
|Citation:||Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand. Vol.77, No.10 (1994), 505-508|
|Abstract:||Between 1982 and 1992, 695 consecutive abdominal hysterectomies and prophylactic oophorectomies in premenopausal women for benign uterine diseases were performed in our department. The trend of prophylactic oophorectomy has declined since 1988 to a minimum in 1990. 60 per cent were 41-45 years of age, 28 per cent were more than 46 years, 12 per cent were 36-40 years. Uterine fibroid was the most frequent indication (77.7%), followed by adenomyosis (21.0%). Ovarian histologies revealed abnormalities only in 1.3 per cent of the removed ovaries, the remainder appeared to be normal.|
