Adnexal torsion is a known cause of acute pelvic pain and delay in the diagnosis and surgical treatment reduces the chances of preserving the ovarian function. Recurrent adnexal torsion results in multiple hospital admissions and surgical interventions. Procedures to reduce the risk of recurrence have been described in the literature including oophoropexy which is fixing the ovarian ligament or ovarian tissue to adjacent ligaments or structures with or without shorting of ovarian ligament. We describe a modified approach of laparoscopic oophoropexy which was performed for a young lady who has completed her family and presented with three episodes of adnexal torsion.
