Study Objective: Study Objective: In this research paper, we demonstrate how to increase the success rate of laparoscopic surgery on pregnant patients with an ovarian cyst using rectal probe, SAND balloon, and lowering the insufficient level. Design: The study design wasa retrospective study. Setting: The study was conducted at Japanese Red Cross Kyoto Daini Hospital, Kyoto, Japan. Patients: Pregnant patients with an ovarian cyst who underwent laparoscopic surgeries at our institution during the period from January 2011 to December 2016. Materials and Methods: We reviewed 14 cases of pregnant women with ovarian cysts that underwent laparoscopic surgery during the study period by observing and analyzing the patient's characteristics, hospitalization practices, surgical complications, operational procedures, and obstetric outcomes. Main Results: Three cases were emergency surgeries and 11 cases were elective surgeries. In the 14 cases, the gestational age at the time of the surgeries ranged from 6 to 20 weeks. In our studies, we found no systemic complications after the surgery and none of the cases reported any fetal malformation or any fetal growth restriction. Conclusion: In our review, laparoscopic surgery for ovarian cyst during pregnancy was very safe and successful, without any adverse effects on pregnancy outcome.
