Conclusion: In infertile women, post-open myomectomy adhesions have a high prevalence of 80.2% with high predilection in fallopian tubes and uterus, compared with women without prior abdominopelvic surgery at 20.3%. Cohesive form of adhesion predominates.
Authors: Zheng W, Cao L, Xu Z, Ma Y, Liang X Abstract Endometriosis is caused by the growth or infiltration of endometrial tissues outside of the endometrium and myometrium. Symptoms include pain and infertility. Surgery and hormonal therapy are widely used in Western medicine for the treatment of endometriosis; however, the side effects associated with this practice include disease recurrence and menopause, which can severely influence quality of life. Angiogenesis is the main biological mechanism underlying the development of endometriosis. Numerous natural products and Chinese medicines with potent anti-angiogen...

BulunSummaryDefective endometrial stromal fibroblasts (EMSFs) contribute to uterine factor infertility, endometriosis, and endometrial cancer. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived from skin or bone marrow biopsies provide a patient-specific source that can be differentiated to various cells types. Replacement of abnormal EMSFs is a potential novel therapeutic approach for endometrial disease; however, the methodology or...
(Northwestern University) Researchers at Northwestern Medicine have taken the first step in bioengineering the human uterus to treat endometriosis, uterine-factor infertility and endometrial cancer.
Endometriosis causes tissue similar to the uterine lining to grow elsewhere in the body. People with endometriosis may be more likely to experience infertility. In this article, learn about the link between endometriosis and fertility issues, as well as what treatments are available.
ConclusionPresence of adenomyosis seems to have adverse effects on IVF outcomes in clinical pregnancy rate, live birth rate and miscarriage rate. Screening for adenomyosis might be considered before ART so that the couple has better awareness of the prognosis.
The objective of this study is to study effect of laparoscopy surgery vs dienogest in reducing pain and effect on infertility associated with endometriosis.
Objective: External validation of the Endometriosis Fertility Index (EFI) in symptomatic patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of moderate and severe endometriosis associated with infertility. We also aimed at evaluating pregnancy rate by ART after surgery.
The objective of this video is to demonstrate a multi-disciplinary approach to the surgical management of stage IV deep infiltrative endometriosis in an infertility patient.
