Kankanala J. A novel Foley’s technique for ovarian giant cyst management: To reduce morbidity. J Case Rep Images Gynecol Obstet 2017;3:23–26.

Introduction: Ovarian cyst is very common. Most of the time they do not present with specific symptoms, hence they are found incidentally on imaging. The management depends upon various factors like age, family history of cancers, size of the cyst and blood test (CA-125).
Case Report: A 32-year-old female presented with mild abdominal discomfort. Ultrasound and contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan revealed large ovarian cyst. After complete evaluation and counseling patient underwent mini-laparotomy and aspiration of cyst by Foley’s method. Spillage was hardly noticed. Complete resection of cyst wall was performed easily. Postoperative recovery was uneventful.
Conclusion: This technique has been successfully used and shown to decrease morbidity.

Keywords: Abdominal masses, Aspiration of ovarian cyst, Large ovarian cyst
