Clomiphene citrate therapy has been found to improve the infertility rate in women suffering from polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD). However, there still exists a group of women with PCOD who fail to respond to clomiphene citrate or human menopausal gonadotropin/human chorionic gonadotropin or urofollitropin/chorionic gonadotropin treatment, an ovarian wedge resection by laparotomy approach which has been known for 50 years. Within the last decade, translaparoscopic electrocautery and laser drilling techniques have been utilized. In 1986, a translaparoscopic carbon dioxide laser ovarian wedge resection was introduced for resistant PCOD. This paper describes the surgical principle of a translaparoscopic carbon dioxide laser ovarian wedge resection. This type of treatment results in a 75% crude conception rate, with a 67% rate of healthy live birth. There was an 8% postsurgical adhesion rate among 12 cases that were incorporated into the study. This mode of therapy may prove to be very useful, safe, easy to perform, and cost effective as a second-line therapy for resistant PCOD in cases where medical inductions fail to achieve ovulation.
