Endometriosis most often affects the pelvic organs, but the most common sites of extragenital endometriosis are the intestine and urinary tract. While bladder endometriosis mimics cystitis in presentation, ureteral endometriosis is usually silent. Rarely, ureteral endometriosis can result in silent kidney loss if stricture reaches a critical level. Medical management of deeply infiltrating lesions of the urinary tract poses a high risk of failure. Laparotomy for treatment of endometriosis is inferior due to decreased visualization and increased morbidity.

Endometriosis may affect the urinary tract in up to 6% of cases. This video describes a laparoscopic approach to the excision of endometriosis overlying the ureter. We demonstrate a retroperitoneal pelvic sidewall dissection in a patient with pelvic pain who desired conservative surgical management of her endometriosis. The ureter is identified and followed through its course in the pelvis. Relevant nearby structures, including the umbilical artery, uterine artery, and iliac arteries, are clearly seen.

Conclusions: Surgeons who perform hysterectomies or are involved with postā€operative hysterectomy patients should be familiar with the possible complications of this common procedure and the steps that can be taken to help reduce the risk of those complications. Clinicians should also inform their patients of the potential complications as they can affect lifestyle and comfort. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Publication date: Available online 12 August 2017 Source:Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology Author(s): Arnaud Wattiez, Razan Nasir Deep endometriosis is usually defined as endometriosis infiltrating the peritoneum by >5 mm. It sometimes involves the ureter causing hydronephrosis in 5% of cases. The latter is associated with 18% ureteral lesions. Ureteral endometriosis is one of the rare causes of silent Kidney failure. The ureter obstruction can lead to urinary tract obstruction, hydronephrosis and hydroureters. The ureters are usually compressed externally by the endometriotic lesions surrounding it causing extr...
