There are considered two clinical cases of torsion of the single uterine appendages in patients of reproductive age without pregnancies in a history. Both patients previously were undergone to adnexectomy due to adnexal torsion. After clinical and laboratory examination and intraoperative endoscopic visualization of the pelvic organs it was decided advisory to limit the amount of surgical intervention by means of unwinding the uterus by laparoscopic method. Taking into account the adnexal torsion on the opposite side (with subsequent adnexectomy) in a history the main stage of the surgical treatment was supplemented by ovariopexy to prevent disease recurrence. Postoperative control for the restoration of blood supply to the ovarian tissues includes programmed laparoscopic examination, monochrome ultrasound scanning, color Doppler mapping (CDM), the study of blood levels of sex hormones, a common clinical and biochemical analyzes of blood, coagulogram.
