Robotic treatment for urinary tract endometriosis: preliminary results and surgical details in a high-volume single-Institutional cohort study

ConclusionsRobotic excision of urological endometriosis represents a safe and effective treatment option, since a limited rate of surgical complications was recorded even in cases of multi-organ disease.

To map the distribution of the sites most affected by endometriosis in patients with unilateral ovarian endometriomas. A descriptive case series of 84 patients with unilateral endometriomas undergoing laparoscopy for the treatment of endometriosis. To evaluate the distribution of the sites of endometriosis lesions, the peritoneal compartments were divided into 5 zones: zone 1/the anterior compartment, including the anterior uterine serosa, vesicouterine fold, round ligament, and bladder; zone 2/the lateral compartment, including the left and right ovary, ovarian fossa, tubes, mesosalpinx, uterosacral ligaments, parametr...

CONCLUSION: Our study reports the second largest series of patients operated from a UTE and shows that ureteral location seems more frequent, less symptomatic and more frequently associated to other DIE locations than bladder endometriosis.PMID:34303076 | DOI:10.1016/j.ejogrb.2021.06.018

There is a major difference between the clinical presentations of endometriosis causing intestinal stenosis and endometriosis causing ureteral stenosis. Whereas a severe bowel stricture originating from endometriosis infiltration, by definition, gives rise to subocclusive symptoms, obstructive uropathy because of ureteral endometriosis may go unnoticed and cause progressive hydroureteronephrosis in the absence of colicky pain (1, 2).

Conclusion: Our results demonstrated the high accuracy of ultrasound for diagnosing BE. The addition of 3D reconstructions does not improve the performance of TVS in diagnosing the presence and characteristics of BE. However, the volume of BE may be more precisely assessed by 3D ultrasound.Gynecol Obstet Invest

AbstractPurposeMRI plays an important role in the diagnosis and surgical planning of pelvic endometriosis (PE), and imaging reports should contain all relevant information (completeness). As structured reports are being increasingly utilized, we aimed to evaluate whether structured MRI reporting increases the quality of reports regarding completeness and, consequently, their perceived value by gynecologists, in comparison to free-text reports. We also aimed to compare the diagnostic performance of both formats.MethodsWe retrospectively included 28 consecutive women with histologically proven PE who underwent MRI within one...

To show a step-by-step technique to assess normal uterosacral ligaments (USLs) during transvaginal ultrasound. Uterosacral ligaments represent the most common location of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) in the posterior compartment and their involvement significantly increases the risk of ureteral lesions. The ultrasonographic diagnosis of DIE involving USLs is characterized by a wide range of accuracies described between studies, probably due to variations in the examination technique, quality of ultrasound equipment, and experience of the operators.
