Sixty-one laparoscopic presacral neurectomies were performed in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Keelung Center over a 1-year period for patients with primary dysmenorrhea who failed to respond to medical management. Eighty-three percent (50) had complete relief of pain, 10% (6) had significant relief, 3.5% (2) had moderate relief, and 3.5% (2) had no relief from their dysmenorrhea at their first menstruation after the procedure. One vascular complication requiring laparotomy occurred. Average total operation time was 24 minutes, and the average hospital stay was 2 days. Six months follow-up was done in 35 patients with complete symptom relief, and all reported continued relief of menstrual pain. The efficacy of laparoscopic presacral neurectomy for the pain relief of primary dysmenorrhea is justified in this report.
