1993 External and Temporal Validation of Ultrasound Based Endometriosis Staging System (UBESS) to Classify Laparoscopic Surgical Complexity for Patients with Endometriosis: A Diagnostic Accuracy Study
To externally and temporally validate the Ultrasound Based Endometriosis Staging System (UBESS) to predict the level of complexity of laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis.
We present MRI and CT case examples, together with corresponding laparoscopic and histopathology images to enhance radiologists ’ understanding of this disease.
ConclusionCervicovaginal aplasia can be successfully treated by laparoscopy-assisted neocervicovaginal reconstruction as demonstrated in the video.

A 41-year-old nulliparous woman underwent assisted reproductive technology (ART) for infertility (stimulation cycles for oocyte retrieval, and embryo transfers). After two biochemical miscarriages, ultrasound and laparoscopy were performed. She reported dysmenorrhea and left sided pelvic pain. Apart from hypothyroidism, her medical history was unremarkable: of note, there was no history of laparoscopic myomectomy. Initial laparoscopy revealed “bubbles of angry-looking tissue”: biopsy reported endometriosis; cytology on peritoneal washings was negative for malignancy.

AbstractWe have read the article entitled “Laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis and predictors of major complications: a retrospective cohort study” by Clarket al with great interest . It has been reported that major complications following laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis are infrequent and difficult to predict by patient characteristics and preoperative imaging (magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound (US)).
