Abstract
Five thousand consecutive cases of diagnostic laparoscopy were analysed. Infertility
was the most common problem which rendered itself to laparoscopic evaluation. Laparoscopy
disclosed pelvic abnormalities in 84.6% of 3.401 infertile patients. Tubal occlusion and
pelvic adhesions were the most common abnormalities. This study showed a discrepancy rate
of 23.0% between laparoscopic and hysterosalpingographic findings in 1,976 infertile patients
with regard to the tubal patency. In 55.8% of 369 patients with suspected ectopic pregnancy,
the diagnosis was confirmed by laparoscopic examination. And laparoscopic evaluation can
circumvent the unnecessary laparotomy in 32.0% of patients. The error in prelaparoscopic
diagnosis of obscure pelvic mass was 29.4% and laparotomy was avoided in 17.1% following
laparoscopic examination.
