Adnexal torsion is a well-known but poorly recognized gynecological emergency. Most cases are in the reproductive age group and many are related to ovarian and paraovarian masses. Adnexal torsion can also occur, however, in normal-looking ovaries with elongated utero-ovarian ligaments. The authors describe the case of a young woman presenting with a sixth recurrence of right adnexal torsion with polycystic ovaries. She had had two failed ovarian fixation efforts in the third and fifth laparoscopies. A combined ovarian fixation method is described, fixing the ovary to the pelvic side wall and shortening the utero-ovarian ligament, at elective surgery one month after the detorsion operation. Ovarian fixation after adnexal torsion is not standardized and best method of fixation remains unresolved.
