Laparoscopic Uterine Nerve Ablation, Presacral Neurectomy, and Uterovaginal Ganglion Excision
A number of less frequently used laparoscopie procedures are discussed in this chapter. These techniques may be useful in the treatment of certain forms of pelvic pain. Nevertheless, experience with these procedures is still limited, patients should be selected very carefully, and the surgery should be performed only by experienced laparoscopists.
