Laparoscopic management was used for 35 cases of adnexal torsion. Since early diagnosis and treatment are necessary to preserve the adnexa, laparoscopy is the best procedure for diagnosing this rare condition. In 27 cases (77%) conservative treatment was carried out, with only 1 recurrence. Complete laparoscopic treatment was achieved in 27 cases (77%), including 3 of endoscopic salpingectomy. Laparotomy was indicated in cases of gangrenous adnexa, organic ovarian cyst and unusual ovarian attachment.
