CONTEXT: Detrusor sphincter disorders impact quality of life in case of deep endometriosis. Surgery, which is one of the main treatments, is responsible of detrusor sphincter disorders. Since then, it is essential to look for those disorders and find the right medical care. OBJECTIVE: To specify the detrusor sphincter disorders, its links with anatomical localisation of deep endometriosis and its prognosis after surgery. METHODS: A literature review was carried out via PubMed® with the followings keywords: "deep endometriosis", "urinary disorders", "voiding dysfunction" and "urinary dysfunction"...

Nerve-sparing surgery is an emerging technique for surgery-related dysfunction. Within the past 15 years, an essential progress in recognition and understanding of the anatomy of the pelvic autonomous nervous system has been made. Surgical preservation of vegetative nerves has become well known in many cancer centers. The technique has led to improvement of the quality of life following oncologic radical procedures. Positive results have led to the adoption of such techniques in the surgical treatment of deep infiltrating endometriosis in an aim to prevent urinary, rectal, and sexual dysfunction...

Endometriosis is a common gynecological condition, but involvement of the urinary tract is rare. Ureteral endometriosis can present in a nonspecific fashion, and may mimic ureteral malignancy. This case report describes a 44-year-old woman who initially presented with chronic flank pain and was found to have left-sided renal dysfunction and a distal left ureteric mass. She was eventually diagnosed with ureteral endometriosis after undergoing nephroureterectomy for what was thought to be either a ureteral fibroepithelial polyp or transitional cell carcinoma...

INTRODUCTION: Endometriosis is the most common pelvic gynaecologic disorder affecting pre-menopausal women. However ureteral endometriosis (UE) especially intrinsic urinary tract endometriosis is a rare finding that is notorious for causing silent renal insult. The pathogenesis of endometriosis still remains a mystery but studies have suggested an association between endometriosis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) suggesting an immunological aspect to endometriosis. There is very little recognition in the renal literature of the significance of UE leading to progressive kidney injury and the association with autoimmune conditions in particular SLE...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Patients with deep infiltrating pelvic endometriosis (DIE) often describe having lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Bladder pain syndrome in women is also often associated with endometriosis. In this study, we aimed to describe the characteristics of LUTS and urodynamic observations in patients with posterior endometriosis versus those with posterior and anterior endometriosis. METHODS: This was a prospective observational study of 30 patients from two gynecologic surgical settings with experience in DIE surgery...

The key to successful therapy of interstitial cystitis (IC) is to correctly diagnose it. The significant majority of patients with IC have a dysfunctional bladder epithelium that allows urinary solutes (primarily potassium) to leak into the bladder wall, causing symptoms and tissue damage. Drugs that correct this dysfunction and suppress symptoms are important to achieve successful outcomes in patients. Today over 95% of females with IC are misdiagnosed as having gynecologic chronic pelvic pain, vulvodynia, vaginitis, endometriosis, overactive bladder or urinary tract infection...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate urinary dysfunction and quality of life before and after surgery for deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE). METHODS: This prospective study included 50 patients with DIE who required surgery. Urinary dysfunction was evaluated before and after surgery by both urodynamic tests and electromyography, and the Bristol Female Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (BFLUTS) quality-of-life questionnaire. RESULTS: Preoperative electromyography showed that 14 patients (28%) had neurogenic alteration involving sacral reflex and pelvic floor muscles correlated with the presence of colorectal endometriosis (p=0...

Lower urinary tract disorders in case of deep endometriosis are common (up to 50% of patients), although often masked by pelvic pain. They result from damage to the pelvic autonomic nervous system by direct infiltration of these structures by endometriotic lesions or surgical trauma (especially in resection of the uterosacral ligaments, rectum or vagina). These are mainly sensory disturbances and bladder voiding dysfunction. They impact quality of life and could be responsible for long-term complications (recurrent urinary tract infections on a persistent residual urine or pelvic floor disorders due to chronic thrusting)...

BACKGROUND: Endocervicosis, endosalpingiosis, endometriosis, and adenomyosis represent choristomas of Mullerian origin and are referred to as mullerianosis. These conditions frequently coexist, and they may present with pelvic pain, mass lesions, and/or infertility. Clinically, they are indistinguishable from one another, and histologically their epithelium is that of the endocervix, endosalpinx, or endometrium. Endocervicosis can be found in the urinary tract, frequently presenting as a bladder lesion or bladder dysfunction...

Although many series have been published on the management of digestive or urinary deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE), few data exist on pre- and postoperative urinary dysfunction (UD) and urodynamic tests. Hence, the objective of this review was to evaluate the pre- and postoperative incidence of UD and the contribution of urodynamic tests as well as their therapeutic implications. Studies published between January 1995 and April 2012, available in the databases Medline, Embase or the Cochrane Library and responding to a key word algorithm were selected...

Endometriosis is a common disease affecting young women. Its clinical manifestations include pain and infertility, and it can dramatically affect quality of life. Treatments should be tailored to address the wishes of women according to the specific characteristics of the disease. Although many questions remain unanswered, strong evidence supports the use of laparoscopic surgery to improve pain and infertility. The systematisation of strategy is essential to make surgery more reproducible, safer and less time-consuming...
