A woman presents with a fluctuant non tender swelling at the introitus.
The best treatment is:
B. Incision and drainage
C. Surgical resection
Aspiration would lead to recurrence and thus not used in the surgical management of Bartholin’s cyst.
- The procedure is simple and can be done as a out patient procedure.
- Even local anesthesia would be sufficient.
- Requires only a short hospital stay ( usually discharged within 24 hours)
- Postoperative complications are few and rare. There is increased incidence of bleeding with surgical resection.
- Better cosmetic outcome.
- The glandular secretion is intact.
