Gastric wall endometriosis in a postmenopausal woman

Publication date: Available online 8 September 2016 Source:The Egyptian Journal of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Author(s): Abdallah A.A. Mohamed, Yasser A.R.M. Selim, Mazin A. Arif, Said A. Albroumi Endometriosis is the presence of endometrial tissue outside of the uterus. It is common in women of childbearing age, and is frequently located in the pelvic cavity. Approximately 10% of endometriosis cases occur in extrapelvic locations. However there are few reports of gastric wall endometriosis. Here, we report a rare case of endometriosis in postmenopausal woman. The patient presented with epigastric pain. The investigations included ultrasound (US) and contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) where she was diagnosed with gastric wall neoplasm. She underwent surgery where the mass was excised. The histopathological examination surprisingly came with the diagnosis of gastric wall endometriosis.

Authors: Abstract Chronic pelvic pain is a common, burdensome, and costly condition that disproportionately affects women. Diagnosis and initial management of chronic pelvic pain in women are within the scope of practice of specialists in obstetrics and gynecology. The challenging complexity of chronic pelvic pain care can be addressed by increased visit time using appropriate coding modifiers, as well as identification of multidisciplinary team members within the practice or by facilitated referral. This Practice Bulletin addresses the diagnosis and management of chronic pelvic pain that is not completely explai...

Publication date: Available online 22 February 2020Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Yan Liu, Zhiwei Zhang, Xiaofen Lu, Jian Meng, Xuying Qin, Jie JiangAbstractEndometriosis of sciatic nerve is a common gynecological disease. Here we aimed to study the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive role of sulforaphane on sciatic nerve endometriosis. The sciatic nerve endometriosis rat model was constructed by autologous implantation of uterine tissue. Sulforaphane was administered intraperitoneally at the dose of 5, 15, 30 and 60 mg/kg/day for 28 days. Behavioral testing was performed at day 7, 14, 21 and 28. At day 2...

Conclusions: This study provides the first evidence that a personality dimension with many prognostic implications may be altered in women with endometriosis. Our findings highlight the importance of a broader understanding of this condition, treating this disorder from a biopsychosocial perspective and suggests the need for non-medical attention within a multidisciplinary team.

Abstract Objectives: The aims of the study were to correlate endometriosis-associated pain, evaluated by visual analogue scale (VAS) scores, with serum levels of etonogestrel (ENG), levonorgestrel (LNG), CA-125 and soluble CD23 in users of the ENG implant or the 52-mg LNG-releasing intrauterine system (52 mg LNG-IUS) for up to 2 years after device placement.Methods: A randomised trial was conducted at the University of Campinas Medical School, Brazil. All participants (n = 103) had had endometriosis-associated chronic pelvic pain or dysmenorrhoea, or both, for more than 6 months. Participants ...

Authors: Vigueras Smith A, Cabrera R, Kondo W, Ferreira H Abstract The present review aims to analyse the current data available on the feasibility, safety and effectiveness of the minimally invasive surgical (MIS) treatment of diaphragmatic endometriosis (DE). Through the use of PubMed and Google Scholar database, we conducted a literature review of all available research related to diagnosis and treatment of DE, focussed on the minimally invasive techniques. The studies were selected independently by two authors according to the aim of this review. DE is an under-diagnosed disease affecting between 0.1% and 1.5% ...

Authors: Sachedina A, Todd N Abstract Most adolescents will experience discomfort during menstruation. Due to normalization of dysmenorrhea, there is delay to diagnosis and treatment. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories are a first line treatment. Adolescents can safely be offered menstrual suppression with combined hormonal contraception, and progestin-only options. When the above are ineffective, gonadotropin releasing hormone agonists with add back treatment can be considered. Transabdominal ultrasound is indicated when first line treatments do not improve symptoms. Endometriosis should be considered in adolescent...

Traditional Endometriosis seems to be, by far, quite different with this unique variant when it comes to clinical presentation, management and course of the disease. Further research needs to be conducted in order to classify these two, phenomenically similar, diseases. Adolescents with a history of dysmenorrhea and chronic pelvic pain (CPP) imply findings suggestive of endometriosis. The severity of the disease is variable, from superficial endometriosis to deep endometriotic lesions or even ovarian endometriomas.
