BACKGROUND: Synchronous endometriosis has been poorly studied in women with endometrioid borderline ovarian tumors (EBOTs). The aims of this study were to compare the clinicopathological features and prognosis of EBOTs with or without endometriosis. RESULTS: Of 52 patients diagnosed with EBOTs, no death was observed and only one case had successful pregnancy during the follow-up period. Older, menopausal EBOT patients, EBOT patients with small tumors and relatively low CA125 level probably had better progression-free survival (PFS) outcomes...

To characterize Annexin A1 (ANXA1), FPR2/ALX and cytokines expression in peritoneal endometriosis and to clarify their role in its etiology, a cross-sectional study was performed with forty women in reproductive age (22 patients with endometriosis and 18 control women) that had undergone laparoscopic surgery. Peritoneal biopsy and fluid aspirations from endometriosis and control samples were analyzed for the expression of ANXA1, FPR2/ALX and cytokines. ANXA1 and FPR2 / ALX levels were measured by Western blotting and interleukin 1ß (IL-1β), interleukin 4 (IL-4), interleukin 6 (IL-6), and interleukin 10 (IL-10) levels were quantified by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)...

Rhabdomyolysis is a rare clinical condition resulting from severe muscle damage that can cause potentially life-threatening complications. Amongst other causes, muscle compression due to patient positioning during prolonged surgery may result in extensive skeletal muscle breakdown. We report on a 39-year-old nulligravida who developed rhabdomyolysis after prolonged laparoscopic surgery for cervical cancer and adhesions due to deep infiltrating endometriosis. Minimally invasive surgical procedures offer major advantages in gynecologic cancer surgery, and preventive methods provide effective pressure reduction and play a crucial role in avoiding physical harm after surgical positioning...

Endometriosis is a benign complex gynecological condition with high morbidity that affects women of reproductive age. Pelvic adhesion formation represents a serious clinical challenge in the management of patients with endometriosis. Several interventions have been proposed over the last few years aiming to reduce post-operative ovarian adhesions formation. The aim of this study is to summarize the evidence of the efficacy of ovarian suspension in the prevention of post-operative ovarian adhesions formation in women undergoing laparoscopic surgery for stage III-IV endometriosis...

Given the current lack of effective screening for ovarian cancer, surgical removal of at-risk tissue is the most successful strategy to decrease risk of cancer development. However, the optimal timing of surgery and tissues to remove, as well as the appropriate patients to undergo preventive procedures are poorly understood. In this review, we first discuss the origin and precursors of ovarian epithelial carcinomas, focusing on high-grade serous carcinomas and endometriosis-associated carcinomas, which cause the majority of the mortality and incidence of ovarian cancer...

INTRODUCTION: The etiology of endometriosis-associated deep dyspareunia may include direct endometriosis-specific factors (eg, stage or invasiveness of disease) and/or indirect contributors such as bladder/pelvic floor dysfunction (eg, related to myofascial mechanisms or nervous system sensitization). AIM: This study aimed to determine whether bladder/pelvic floor tenderness and painful bladder syndrome were associated with severity of deep dyspareunia in women with endometriosis, regardless of Stage (I/II vs III/IV) or other endometriosis-specific factors...

PURPOSE: Endometriosis is a debilitating disease with high recurrence rates requiring long-term management. Progestins such as dienogest are used empirically when first symptoms occur and post-surgery to reduce recurrence. This retrospective, practice-based study assessed the efficacy and safety of dienogest in women with endometriosis treated for at least 60 months. METHODS: 37 women (age 39 ± 8 years) with laparoscopically diagnosed endometriosis received dienogest 2 mg orally once daily...

Ovarian masses are one of the most frequently identified entities in gynecological practice. Early differential diagnosis is a key factor in the medical management of each patient. Transvaginal ultrasound along with additional preoperative testing, such as serum cancer antigen 125 (CA-125) levels and the Risk of Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm (ROMA) score, usually provide sufficient information for a presumptive diagnosis. Minimally invasive surgery as a therapeutic approach is the standard procedure for uncomplicated and benign adnexal masses...

Endometriosis of the gastrointestinal tract is rare and occurs in <1% of all patients undergoing major gynecological surgeries. Bowel involvement has been reported in 3%-37% of all women of childbearing age with endometriosis. Total obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract occurs in <1% of cases of endometriosis with bowel obstruction. This case report is that of a 42-year-old female who presented with a 6-month history of change in bowel habits in favor of increasing constipation. This was associated with cyclical lower abdominal pains, abdominal swelling, and weight loss...

Endometriosis is a condition wherein an ectopic layer of endometrial tissue arises in an extra-uterine location, often effecting significant pelvic pain and infertility. While very uncommon, there have been reported cases of endometriosis undergoing malignant transformation, frequently involving the ovaries and seldom in extra-gonadal regions. We recount a case depicting a 63 year-old woman who presented with an apparent inguinal hernia in 2017; she was ultimately diagnosed with a pelvic side wall clear cell carcinoma and attendant metastatic disease to the medial groin, which emanated from endometriosis...

Endometriosis is characterized by the presence of endometrial glands and stroma outside the uterine cavity. The occurrence of endometriosis in the anterior abdominal wall is often associated with previous cesarean section, once the spread of endometrial cells during the surgical procedure is a biologically fact possible. A 43-year-old patient, with cesarean section history and pelvic endometriosis diagnosed for over 10 years, presented with progressive abdominal pain. Tests showed cystic image with 1.6 cm of diameter and debris, located in mid-lower portion of the rectus abdominis left, suggesting abdominal wall endometriosis...
