    In a patient who underwent both a right salpingectomy because of right tubal pregnancy and left ovarian cystectomy due to an ovarian cyst, we performed an operation whereupon the normal right ovary was shifted toward the position of the left ovary together with the pelvic infundibular ligament. By observation of the ovarian follicle through ultrasonic tomography, the follicle, as seen only from the right preoperatively, was seen only from the left after the operation. The patient delivered a baby by normal pregnancy 3 months after the operation. This method requires no complicated technique and could prove to be a promising therapeutic procedure treating patients with infertility.
