[Laparoscopic surgery of an intraperitoneal intrauterine device].Rev Fr Gynecol Obstet 1995; 90(10):409-11RF
This study involved 13 cases of patients fitted with intra-uterine contraceptive devices which migrated in the abdominal cavity. Laparoscopy enabled localization of the IUCD and full lesion assessment. It was removed by celio-surgery in all 13 cases. Difficulties encountered were due to parietoepiploic adhesions and IUCD impacted in the wall of the rectum.
