ABSTRACTObjective: To correlate the incidence of ovarian torsion with its benignity.
Materials and Methods: Ambispectic, observational, retrospective and comparative study from 2011 to 2016 in Hospital Universitario José Eleuterio González with patients who presented adnexal tumors with torsion phenomenon. We analized each case related to the patients age, size and weight of the tumor, incidence of necrosis and suggestive data of malignancy. The characteristics of each group were analized with ANOVA test.
Results: We studied 44 patients that presented adnexal tumors with torsion phenomenon; 4 cases were not classified because of necrosis. In 36 of 40 tumors were classified as benign. The average weight of the benign adnexal tumors was 445 grams, of the malign ones was 1650 and the ones affected by necrosis was 167 grams. Throughout the period of the investigation there were 704 cases of patients with adnexal tumors, from these 218 were malign (31%) and 486 were benign (69%). From these 704 patients, 44 presented torsion phenomenon (6.2%).
Conclusion: Most tumors with ovarian torsion phenomena are usually benign. The weight of the tumor with a torsion phenomenon greater than 1500 g is suggestive of malignancy, relevant data for suspicion in a transoperative manner.
