Laparoscopic CO2 laser uterine nerve ablation for treatment of drug resistant primary dysmenorrhea.

Twenty women with drug-resistant primary dysmenorrhea were subjected to laparoscopic CO2 laser uterine nerve ablation. Menstrual pain assessed by a linear analog pain score showed a reduction of 33%, decreasing from 7.5 +/- 0.5 preoperatively to 5.0 +/- 1.7 postoperatively. The procedure was free of major complications and should be considered as a second-line therapeutic option in women who have failed medical treatment using nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents or OCs.
