BACKGROUND: Methods available for assessing the learning curve, such as a predefined number of procedures or direct mentoring are lacking. Our aim was to describe the use of a statistical method to identify the minimal training length of an experienced sonographer, newly trained in deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) mapping by evaluating the learning curve of transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) in the preoperative assessment of endometriosis. METHODS: A retrospective study in a tertiary referral center for endometriosis...

OBJECTIVE: To perform a prospective evaluation of postoperative fertility management using the endometriosis fertility index (EFI). STUDY: This prospective non-interventional observational study was performed from January 2013 to February 2016 in a tertiary care university hospital and an assisted reproductive technology (ART) centre. In total, 196 patients underwent laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis-related infertility. Indications for surgery included pelvic pain (dysmenorrhoea, and/or deep dyspareunia), abnormal hysterosalpingogram, and failure to conceive after three or more superovulation cycles with or without intra-uterine insemination...

Endometriosis is an enigmatic disorder that is fraught with management controversies and very often, there exists deep divides in management strategies amongst the generalist, the specialist who favours surgery, the specialist who favour medical treatment, and those who are equipoised. The lack of clarity on the aetiology of the disease most likely fuels the existing debates and enhance subjective management options. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

OBJECTIVES: Previous studies, comparing women with deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) and healthy controls, underlined an association between pelvic floor muscle (PFM) hypertonic dysfunction and deep lesions. The aim of the study is to compare the morphometry of pelvic floor muscle (PFM) in women affected by ovarian endometriosis with or without DIE, to assess the impact of retroperitoneal infiltration by the disease on PFM function. METHODS: A prospective study was conducted between March 2015 to December 2016 on symptomatic women with clinical and sonographic diagnosis of ovarian endometriosis with or without DIE, submitted to laparoscopic surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Intestinal involvement in endometriosis was first described by Sampson in 1922. The reported incidence ranges between 3% and 37% in patients diagnosed with endometriosis. In literature, there are few studies that correlate the severity of endometriosis (in terms of intestinal infiltration) and its clinical presentation. The aim of this study was to review the correlation between the severity of symptoms, the depth of intestinal wall infiltration, and lymph node involvement in our tertiary referral center...

To analyze whether the endometrial and endometriotic microenvironment is involved in the pathogenesis of endometriosis, we characterized the stromal composition. We used CD90 for fibroblasts, α-smooth muscle actin for myofibroblasts as well as CD10 and CD140b for mesenchymal stromal cells. Quantification of eutopic endometrial stroma of cases without endometriosis showed a high percentage of stromal cells positive for CD140b (80.7%) and CD10 (67.4%), a moderate number of CD90-positive cells (57.9%), and very few α-smooth muscle actin-positive cells (8...

Endometriosis is an important gynaecological disorder which can impact significantly on an individual's quality of life and has major implications on fertility. Deep infiltrating endometriosis is a severe form of endometriosis which can cause obliteration of anatomic compartments. Laparoscopy remains the gold standard for diagnosis of endometriosis, although is an invasive procedure that has the potential to be hindered by obliterative disease. Ultrasound is often employed as the first-line imaging modality when endometriosis is suspected, however, MRI is more accurate in assessment of complex disease...

Uterine, ovarian, and placental pathologies are among the differential considerations for a pregnant woman presenting with abdominal and pelvic pain. Imaging plays a key role in the initial work-up of these patients. Sonography is often the first line test; however, evaluation of pelvic pathology can be limited in the gravid state, especially in mid- or late-term pregnancy. We present a case of a pregnant woman who came to the emergency room at 25 weeks with acute abdominal and pelvic pain. Both ultrasound and MR imaging findings revealed intraperitoneal hemorrhage, initially of unknown origin, as well as endometriomas and deep endometriosis...

Adenomyosis is defined as the presence of ectopic endometrial glands and stroma within the myometrium. It is a disease of the inner myometrium and results from infiltration of the basal endometrium into the underlying myometrium. Transvaginal ultrasonography (TVUS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the main radiologic tools for this condition. A thickness of the junctional zone of at least 12 mm is the most frequent MRI criterion in establishing the presence of adenomyosis. Adenomyosis can appear as a diffuse or focal form...

BACKGROUND OR OBJECTIVE: Endometriosis is common in women referred for infertility. In vitro fertilization provides good results but the choice of the best controlled ovarian hyperstimulation protocol remains a subject of debate. The objective of this retrospective study was to compare pregnancy outcomes in women with endometriosis-associated infertility after COH with a long agonist protocol or a six-week oral contraception-antagonist protocol. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of a prospective database identified 284 COH cycles - 165 with GnRH-agonist protocol (GnRH-agonist group) and 119 with GnRH-antagonist protocol (GnRH-antagonist group) - in 218 women, with endometriosis from January 2013 to October 2015...

Endometriosis is a common disease characterized by the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue. Although the pathogenesis of endometriosis remains unclear, several factors have been implicated, including the dysregulation of homeobox ( HOX) genes. Our objective was to investigate the localization and immunoreactivity of HOXB4 in endometrial tissues from women with or without endometriosis. We studied samples of eutopic endometrium (EE), endometriomas (Eoma), superficial endometriosis (SE), and deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) from 34 women with endometriosis, as well as eutopic endometrium from 38 women without endometriosis (EC)...

Resection of endometriosis nodules infiltrating the bladder is routinely performed by laparoscopy. However, laparoscopic resection may lead to inadvertent loss of healthy bladder tissue. Conversely, when bladder nodules are treated by cystoscopy alone, resection may be incomplete. A combined laparoscopic-cystoscopic approach allows safe and controlled resection. The video reports the procedure performed in a 33 year-old primipara who presented with a 40mm bladder nodule. The laparoscopic step is carried out by the gynecologist, who separates the bladder from the uterus and opens the vesico-vaginal space...

Endometriosis with its estimated incidence rate of ∼7-10% of women of reproductive age is a disease with the wide spectrum of symptoms depending on form and localization of endometrial foci. One clinical form of endometriosis is deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE), most difficult to manage and generating a lot of direct and indirect treatment costs. We search the literature from PubMed database to establish the role of conservative treatment of DIE. Randomised controlled trials are lacking but in experts opinion hormonal treatment should be the first-line treatment in DIE...

Accurate noninvasive diagnostic tests for endometriosis are still missing. This study evaluated the predictive value of the neuropeptide urocortin 1 (Ucn1) to detect pelvic endometriosis in symptomatic women. We enrolled prospectively 97 consecutive women submitted to gynecologic laparoscopy for chronic or acute pelvic pain, infertility or adnexal mass. Preoperative blood samples were assayed for Ucn1 using enzyme immunoassay. Patients with endometriosis had higher plasma Ucn1 levels compared to patients with no lesions (median 59 vs...

BACKGROUND: Endometriosis is estimated to affect 6-10% of women of reproductive age and it is associated with chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhoea and subfertility. It is currently managed surgically or medically but symptoms recur in up to 75% of cases and available medical treatments have undesirable side effects. Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus with lesions typically found on the peritoneum. The aetiology of endometriosis is uncertain but there is increasing evidence that transforming growth factor (TGF)-β plays a major role...

The multidisciplinary team (MDT) is considered good practice in the management of chronic conditions and is now a well-established part of clinical care in the NHS. There has been a recent drive to have MDTs in the management of women with severe endometriosis requiring complex surgery as a result of recommendations from the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) and British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE). The multidisciplinary approach to the management of patients with endometriosis leads to better results in patient outcomes; however, there are potentially a number of barriers to its implementation and maintenance...
