Marsupialization is one of the methods of surgical cyst treatment. In gynecology, this procedure involves the treatment of Bartholin gland cyst abscess (gland secreting mucosa, located at the entrance to the vagina at the level of the lower 1/3 of the labia), resulting from the closure of the mucus discharge line from the gland.
Symptoms of Bartholin’s gland
- inflammation painfulness of the intimate surroundings
- bad mood weakness higher temperature
The treatment consists of incision of the cyst wall, emptying its contents and inserting the cut edges of the cyst wall into the mucosa to prevent it from being re-filled and closed. Marsupialization does not give 100% certainty that the treated abscess will never come back. If this happens, it is advisable to completely trim Bartholin’s gland. The procedure is performed in a short, intravenous general anesthesia and lasts about 10-15 minutes.
