This study aimed to develop a grounded theory of how endometriosis affects psychological health. Open interviews were conducted with 74 patients. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale was administered to all women, who were divided into distressed versus non-distressed. At the core of our grounded theory was the notion of disruption due to the common features of living with endometriosis. Experiencing disruption (vs restoring continuity) involved higher distress and was associated with a long pathway to diagnosis, bad doctor-patient relationships, poor physical health, lack of support, negative sense of female identity, and identification of life with endometriosis...

Deep endometriosis is usually defined as endometriosis infiltrating the peritoneum by >5 mm. It sometimes involves the ureter causing hydronephrosis in 5% of cases. The latter is associated with 18% ureteral lesions. Ureteral endometriosis is one of the rare causes of silent Kidney failure. The ureter obstruction can lead to urinary tract obstruction, hydronephrosis and hydroureters. The ureters are usually compressed externally by the endometriotic lesions surrounding it causing extrinsic ureteral endometriosis, and sometimes by pressure from the bulky adenomyotic uterus with paraureteral fibrosis...

Ovarian endometrioma (OMA) and deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) have long been recognized to have different histology and, as such, postulated to be 2 separate disease entities. Few studies, however, have attempted to elucidate the causes for their differences. Making use of ectopic endometrial tissue samples from 25 and 20 women with OMA and DIE, respectively, and control endometrial tissue samples from 25 women without endometriosis, we conducted an immunohistochemical analysis to evaluate the expression of a group of carefully chosen markers for epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), fibroblast-to-myofibroblast transdifferentiation (FMT), smooth muscle metaplasia (SMM), fibrosis, vascularity, hormonal receptors, and proteins involved in epigenetic modifications...

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT) of the bladder is a rare tumour of indeterminate malignant potential with myofibroblastic differentiation, with a generally benign but rarely aggressive behaviour. Vesical IMT is usually treated by transurethral resection or partial cystectomy. Herein we describe a case of a woman who underwent laparoscopic excision of an IMT of the bladder, initially diagnosed as deep infiltrating endometriosis.

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a central sensitization syndrome; however, peripheral pain sources potentially exacerbate its symptoms of chronic diffuse musculoskeletal pain and hyperalgesia. This prospective study evaluated visceral pain as a possible triggering factor for FMS pain and hyperalgesia in comorbid patients. Women with (1) FMS + irritable bowel syndrome (IBS); (2) FMS + primary dysmenorrhea (Dys); (3) FMS + Dys secondary to endometriosis (Endo); (4) FMS + colon diverticulosis (Div) were compared with FMS-only women, for fibromyalgia pain (number and intensity of episodes and analgesic consumption) over comparable periods and for somatic hyperalgesia (electrical and pressure pain thresholds) in painful (tender points) and control areas (trapezius, deltoid, quadriceps muscles, and overlying subcutis and skin)...

Endometriosis is present in 1 in 10 reproductive-age women, and half experience deep dyspareunia (pelvic pain with sexual intercourse). Our objective was to investigate nerve growth factor (NGF) and its receptors (TrkA/p75NTR) in endometriosis-associated deep dyspareunia. A total of 32 women with endometriosis in the posterior pelvic compartment (cul-de-sac/uterosacrals) were included, either with (n = 17) or without (n = 15) deep dyspareunia symptoms confirmed by endovaginal ultrasound-assisted palpation on examination...

PURPOSE: We aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the role of the vagina as a route for drug delivery and absorption, with a particular focus on the use of vaginal hormonal compounds for the treatment of deep infiltrating symptomatic endometriosis. METHODS: A MEDLINE search through PubMed was performed to identify all published studies in English language on vaginal hormonal treatments for symptomatic endometriosis. RESULTS: Main advantages of the vaginal route include avoidance of the hepatic-first pass metabolic effect, the possibility of using lower therapeutic dosages, and the reduction of side effects compared with the oral administration...

Deep infiltrative endometriosis (DIE) is a severe form of the disease. The median time interval from the onset of symptoms to diagnosis of endometriosis is around 8 years. In this prospective study patients were divided into two groups: cases (34 DIE patients) and control (20 tubal ligation patients). The main objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of CA-125 measurement in the menstrual and midcycle phases of the cycle, as well as the difference in its levels between the two phases, for the early diagnosis of DIE...

Endometriosis is a benign chronic disease which can have different degrees of severity and can potentially affect any organ. Intestinal endometriosis occurs in 3%â€"37% of the cases, being more frequent in the rectosigmoid transition. Transmural involvement of intestinal endometriosis is extremely rare and is usually associated with recurrent abdominal pain. Due to the cyclical hormone influence, endometriosis implants may infiltrate the deeper layers of the intestinal wall and may lead to bowel obstruction or perforation...

Endometriosis is a common gynecological disorder defined by the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus. It is the most common cause of chronic pelvic pain and typically affects the ovaries, uterine ligaments, peritoneum, tubes, rectovaginal septum and bladder. It may, however, be found at various extrapelvic sites, including the perineum, liver, pancreas, lung or even the central nervous system, and in such cases, diagnosis may be quite challenging. Even though definitive diagnosis requires laparoscopy, preoperative identification of endometriosis is important not only to differentiate it from other diseases with similar clinical presentations but also, for accurate presurgical mapping, since complete removal of all endometriotic foci is critical for the effective treatment of the patient's symptoms...

The combination of a thorough physical exam and imaging with either MRI or pelvic ultrasound are important in pre-operative planning for deep infiltrating endometriosis. Nevertheless, the 2-dimensional rendering of the pathology by imaging does not always accurately represent intra-operative findings. An in-depth topographical relationship and extent of surrounding tissue invasion can be better appreciated from 3-dimensional modeling. A 49 year old patient with history of endometriosis and persistent pain underwent pre-operative imaging with MRI that was consistent with infiltrating endometriosis...
