This tissue can also destroy the ovaries and can cause adhesions  tubal damage. In this situation laparoscopy can be used.

Sometimes, ultrasound is also needed to guide the needle procedure for draining out the cyst. Laparoscopy makes this procedure painless and removes cyst without separating ovaries and surrounding muscles.
