Publication date: Available online 22 November 2019Source: Journal of Minimally Invasive GynecologyAuthor(s): Sarah MAHEUX-LACROIX, Mathieu BELANGER, Lorence PINARD, Madeleine LEMYRE, Philippe LABERGE, Amélie BOUTINAbstractObjectiveTo evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of intra-operative laparoscopic imaging tools in reference to histopathology for detecting endometriotic lesions and to compare them to conventional white light inspection by performing a systematic review with meta-analysis.Data sourcesWe searched the databases MEDLINE, EMBASE, and CENTRAL as well as citations and reference lists to the end of February 2019.Methods of Study SelectionTwo authors screened 1038 citations for eligibility. We included randomized controlled trials or prospective cohort studies published in English, assessing the accuracy of intra-operative imaging tools for diagnosing endometriosis during laparoscopy. We considered studies using histopathologic evaluation as standard criterion.Tabulation, Integration, and ResultsSeven studies were eligible, representing 472 women and 1717 histopathology specimens, and studied the use of narrow-band imaging (2 studies), 5-aminolevulinic acid induced fluorescence (2 studies), autofluorescence imaging (1 study), indocyanine green (1 study), and three-dimensional robot (1 study). Two authors extracted data and assessed the validity of included studies. Bivariate random-effects models and McNemar's test were used to compare the tests and evaluate so...

AbstractPurposeThis is a retrospective cohort study that evaluates the postoperative pain findings of a consecutive series of laparoscopic surgeries for deep endometriosis (DE).MethodsThis multi-center retrospective cohort study was carried out in university hospitals (Istanbul, Turkey). Sixty-five patients diagnosed through bimanual gynecologic examination, gynecologic ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging-confirmed endometrioma and DE together; who underwent a laparoscopic surgery between 2013 and 2019 by a team of gynecologists, colorectal surgeons, and a urologist were retrospectively evaluated. The data were collec...

ConclusionsThe few differences observed did not seem to be clinically relevant, making the 2 procedures comparable in terms of the ability to visually detect endometriotic lesions. Further prospective trials are needed to confirm our results.

Authors: Chmaj-Wierzchowska K, Rzymski P, Wojciechowska M, Parda I, Wilczak M Abstract Introduction: Endometriosis is a chronic disease that involves the development of endometrium outside the uterine cavity with pain component predominance. The aim of the study was to discuss the occurrence of health problems in patients with endometriomas and simple cysts and the effect of these problems on the daily functioning of the patients. Material and methods: The study included patients (n = 40) treated laparoscopically and/or by laparotomy due to lesions in the form of endometriomas or simple cysts. The control group...

CONCLUSIONS: There are limited data on the effectiveness and safety of in-bag morcellation at the time of laparoscopic myomectomy compared to uncontained power morcellation. We were unable to determine the effects of in-bag morcellation on intraoperative complications as no events were reported in either group. We are uncertain if in-bag morcellation improves total operative time or ease of morcellation compared to control. Regarding morcellation operative time, the quality of the evidence was also very low and we cannot be certain of the effect of in-bag morcellation compared to uncontained morcellation. No cases of posto...
