Review Of Pelvic Masses Aspirated Under Ultrasound Guidance

The purpose of the study was to assess the utility and importance of ultrasound-guided aspiration of pelvic masses and to review our experience186 cases of pelvic masses were referred to our Ultrasound Clinic in Karachi from November 2008 to November 2019. Based on Ultrasound criteria, diagnosis of cysts, abscesses, endometriomas and pelvic collections were made. Diagnostic/ therapeutic aspirations were carried out. Masses were aspirated per-abdominally by free-hand technique whereas endovaginal aspirations were done via puncture adapter technique. 14-18 gauge needles were used based on the viscosity of the fluid as determined by the zone of enhancement. All patients were reassessed after 15 days to evaluate any pain, discomfort, spill or recurrence.
