Group A: open surgical management. Group B: laparoscopic surgical management. After surgery total patients followed up for 6 months. Results: The disease affected females (63.33%) in group-A and (60%) in group-B more than males (36.67%) in group-A and 40%) in group-B. The most common age Group involved was between 35-45 years 11 (43.33%) in Group-A and 35-45 years 15 (50%) in group-B.
