What does right cystic adnexa mean-Pelvic CT scan?
I was hospitalized for surgery and had a CT scan done. I was looking over the report and on the PELVIC scan it says "right csytic adnexa." I was in the hospital for something else, and the drs never mentioned it.
What does it mean? Does adnexa mean ovaries? For a while I've thought I had endometriosis or ovarian cysts, so can this be?
"Right cystic adnexa" does not contain adequate information. It should include "mass" or "structure" or some other word to describe what is cystic.
Cystic means a fluid filled consistancy. Right and left adenexa area the areas to either side of your uterus. But it should say "cystic SOMETHING in the right adnexa." Talk with your doctors, even if it means you need to make a phone call just for this. I am assuming that you probably had a right ovarian cyst, but ovaries can be hard to see on CT scans, because they are small. So the radiologist saw a cystic area in the adnexa, but he/she could not assume it was on the ovary, since the ovary could not be seen. Do remember, that every month, prior to ovulation, we develop follicular or functional cysts on our ovaries. These are normal, and can be seen in a patient with no symptoms. (+ info

Could anyone tell me what causes hydrosalpinx or adnexa ?
Hydrosalpinx is a result of injury to the tube, usually from an infection. The classic causes of hydrosalpinx are chlamydia and gonorrhea, which can run undetected for years, slowly injuring and destroying the delicate fimbria. IUDs, endometriosis, and abdominal surgery sometimes are associated with the problem. As a reaction to injury, the body rushes inflammatory cells into the area, and inflammation and later healing result in loss of the fimbria and closure of the tube. These infections usually affect both fallopian tubes, and although a hydrosalpinx can be one-sided, the other tube on the opposite side is often abnormal. By the time it is detected, the tubal fluid usually is sterile, and does not contain an active infection.
Not only does a hydrosalpinx cause infertility, it can also reduce the success rate of fertility treatment, even those treatments that bypass the fallopian tubes. The blocked tube can communicate with the uterus, and the fluid in the tube can be expressed out of the tube into the uterus. This fluid is probably somewhat toxic to early embryo development, and certainly provides an unfavorable environment. The large volume of the fluid flow back into the uterus and can produce enough flow that embryos find it difficult to attach, since they have no ability to move against the tide. Fertility drugs may cause the fluid to build up in the tube, since the tubes are responsive to the ovarian hormones produced during fertility drug therapy.
But than again i was one of the very few who never had any of theses signs or reason to cause hydrosalpinx. THey say very few just get it and they have no answer why or how. I was one of those. But it can be treated, they will go and remove the fallopian tube which has hydrosalpinx and in a few weeks she will feel a huge difference. (+ info
could anyone tell me what effect hydrosalpinx or adnexa have on hindering fertility?
The main thing I have heard of is the excess fluid continuosly drains from the tube into the uterus, and it can make the lining irritated and prevent implantation, or eventually kill and embryos that do manage to implant.
I learned this when a friend of mine was diagnosed with a hydrosalpinx (she only had one tube). She can't have surgery on it, but she has done several rounds of IVF. Her doctor says her chance is reduced to 25% per cycle due to the HS. She has had 2 chemical PGs in a row, and the doctor told her it is probably due to the draining fluid washing away the embryos that are trying to implant. This is the doctor's theory, and of course it could be due to other factors that have not been identified. (+ info
What is the normal mesurement of the edometrium for post menopausal women?
I'm a student who needs help. A 70 y/o female patient came in complaning of LLQ pain. A TV ultrasound was performed to better evaluate the edometrium and the adnexa. The uterus is found to be the normal size of 6.5x3.5 cm. While, the endometrium was seen heterogeneous, abnormal in echogenicty and was thickened to 7mm. There are some hyper attenuated focus found centrally and some free fluid within the endometrium, and in the cul-de-sack. The andexa seemed to be grossly normal. She is not on hormone replacment therapy. This exam is a follow-up from previous, and since then, the focus found within the endometrium have enlarged.
I am apparently post-menopausal, have to be ultrasounded at least once a year for reasons I won't go into now, they tell me I should be concerned if the endometrium is thicker than 5 mm. Apparently there is no lower limit, have had as little as 1 mm and no one raised any red flags. (+ info
Free Fluid within Right Adnexa Normal??
I had a endovaginal pelvic ultrasound for some right sided pain. The ultrasound showed a "small amount of free fluid within the right adnexa". Is this normal? What does this mean? Thanks!!
Free fluid in the adnexa means you have fluid in the pelvic cavity. Usually, a small amount of fluid means that a small ovarian cyst has ruptured, and the fluid is now "free" in your pelvic cavity and not confined. Your pelvic pain could have been due to a cyst on your right side. Once the cyst ruptures, the pain will go away, in most cases. This fluid is absorbed, and will disappear on its own. This usually causes no problems for you, as a patient. (+ info

Depending on your overall medical history they may recommend something like being on the birth control pill to see if it helps control the cyst.
I would recommend getting back in touch with your doctor to ask for further clarification on these results.
