We report a rare case of a deep infiltrating endometriotic nodule entrapping the right obturator nerve.

We successfully diagnosed the case and treated the patient with laparoscopic surgery. A video showing the surgery is also included. The recent follow-up in July 2018 (18 months after the operation was performed in January 2017) showed no signs or symptoms of recurrence or any other new complaints. The 18-month follow-up for this case is the longest follo...

Thus, we tried to collect companies which are on top of their game in the conventional fertility and/or pregnancy area, but also start-ups and ventures who are looking way beyond that. Here’s our guide to 10 outstanding companies in women’s health. The w...
