Bartholin gland excision video

Gland excision — Excision of the entire Bartholin gland and duct is the definitive procedure for treatment of both cysts and abscesses. It is usually only performed after other less invasive methods have repetitively failed or for Bartholin carcinoma.

In contrast to other methods, excision carries a high risk of complications, particularly excessive bleeding. Other complications include hematoma formation, cellulitis, scarring, disfigurement, and dyspareunia. Loss of Bartholin gland function rarely causes vaginal dryness or dyspareunia.

Excision must be performed in an operating room. Attention to hemostasis, recognition of inadvertent entry into the vagina or rectum, and ascertaining that the entire gland has been resected are important considerations during the procedure. The procedure is shown in the video
