The classical teaching was that twisted adnexa should be resected and not untwisted, so as not to increase the risk of pulmonary embolism (PE). A patient recently was seen who developed PE after adnexal resection. Because this complication followed the conventional management of salpingo-oophorectomy, the literature was examined for cases ...
