About

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine disorder characterized by hyperandrogenism, insulin resistance, and ovulatory dysfunction. One of the diagnostic criteria for PCOS is the presence of polycystic ovaries, which are enlarged ovaries with multiple follicles on ultrasound. However, the mechanisms that lead to the development of polycystic ovaries in PCOS are not completely understood. One potential area of investigation is the role of ovarian innervation in the pathophysiology of PCOS. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the ovarian innervation in PCOS patients through ovarian biopsy sampling.

Full description

The study will be conducted at a tertiary care center Koco Gliozheni Maternity, Faculty of Medicine of Tirana, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology with expertise in gynecology and endocrinology and will then be examined with the aid of the department of Biology and Physiology of the University of Perugia. The study protocol will be approved by the institutional ethics committee, and written informed consent will be obtained from all participants.
