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...

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...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: This distorted anatomical state of pouch of Douglas (POD) obliteration can be predicted with a high degree of certainty and reproducibility using the dynamic transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) sliding sign technique. Studies on POD obliteration prediction have always focused on populations in tertiary care centers with high endometriosis prevalence. In addition to patients with symptomatic endometriosis, POD obliteration may exist in individuals with asymptomatic endometriosis or other etiologies such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), pelvic tuberculosis, or surgical scarring. For most abdominal...

Authors: Dinh T, Leonardi M, Espada M, Vanza K, Condous G Abstract The gold standard for diagnosis of endometriosis remains direct visualization at laparoscopy and histological confirmation. However, ultrasound is emerging as a key modality in detecting endometriosis. This case demonstrates how ultrasound has the ability to detect lesions that may not be visible on laparoscopy. A left uterosacral ligament (LUSL) deep endometriosis (DE) nodule was detected on preoperative ultrasound. During laparoscopy, no abnormalities were visualized at that site. Given ultrasound's high specificity for DE, the LUSL was resected; ...
