Optimal surgical treatment of rectovaginal endometriosis remains a controversial topic. The objective of this study was to evaluate long term postoperative outcomes after rectal shaving or colorectal resection for rectovaginal endometriosis MATERIAL AND METHODS: 195 patients underwent surgery (172 managed by shaving, 23 by colorectal resection) between January 2000 and June 2013 for rectovaginal endometriosis (>2cm) involving at least the serosa of the rectum. Primary outcome measures were pain and fertility...

Based on a review of the current literature, we will discuss early and late (more than 3 months postoperative) complications associated with surgery for colorectal endometriosis resection. The most common surgical complications are: rectovaginal fistulae, anastomotic leakages and abscesses. Post-operative bleeding occurs rarely but has also been reported; and usually requires blood transfusion without surgical interventions. The selection of patients for surgery requires a multidisciplinary approach and complete preoperative imaging work-up by an experienced physician...

AIM: Surgical management of patients with deep endometriosis (DE) of the rectum is difficult. Inflammation and subsequent adhesions due to DE impede access to the lower pelvis and may lead to complications during laparoscopic low anterior resection (LAR). Transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) is an alternative to an abdominal approach with potential advantages. The aim of this study was to provide a description of the TAMIS technique and to present the perioperative results of TAMIS and of conventional LAR in patients with DE...

BACKGROUND: Reports demonstrate laparoscopic colorectal surgery in obese patients is associated with higher conversion to laparotomy and complication rates. While several advantages of robotic-assisted surgery have been reported, outcomes in obese patients have not been adequately studied. Therefore, this study compares outcomes of robotic-assisted surgery in non-obese and obese patients. METHODS: A retrospective review of 331 consecutive robotic procedures performed at a single institution between 2009 and 2015 was performed...

DESIGN: Retrospective study to assess the gastrointestinal functional outcomes after rectal disc resection for DIE using a validated scoring system. SETTING: University tertiary referral centre. PATIENTS: Women who underwent disc resection for endometriosis at Royal Hospital for Women and Prince of Wales Private Hospital between January 2012 and December 2013 were included...

OBJECTIVE: To assess urinary, sexual, and bowel function before and after laparoscopic bowel resection for rectosigmoid endometriosis. DESIGN: Prospectively collected data regarding the function of the pelvic organs. SETTING: Tertiary endometriosis referral unit, Aarhus University Hospital. SAMPLE: A cohort of 128 patients who underwent laparoscopic bowel resection for endometriosis. METHODS: The International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire (ICIQ), Sexual Function-Vaginal Changes Questionnaire (SVQ), and the Low Anterior Resection Syndrome (LARS) questionnaire were answered before and after surgery...

BACKGROUND: About 10% of women of reproductive age suffer from endometriosis. Endometriosis is a costly chronic disease that causes pelvic pain and subfertility. Laparoscopy, the gold standard diagnostic test for endometriosis, is expensive and carries surgical risks. Currently, no non-invasive tests that can be used to accurately diagnose endometriosis are available in clinical practice. This is the first review of diagnostic test accuracy of imaging tests for endometriosis that uses Cochrane methods to provide an update on the rapidly expanding literature in this field...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal resection is performed in a majority of patients presenting with large endometriosis of mid and lower rectum; however, it may negatively and irreversibly impact postoperative rectal function. To avoid such unfavourable outcomes, we propose an original technique combining laparoscopic deep rectal shaving and transanal disc excision using a semi-circular stapler. METHODS: The video presents the procedure performed in a 29-year-old nullipara referred with a large endometriotic nodule infiltrating the lower rectum on more than 30 mm length...

BACKGROUND: To date, a majority of patients presenting with large endometriosis of the rectum are managed worldwide by colorectal resection. However, postoperative rectal function may be impacted by radical rectal surgery. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the postoperative outcomes of patients with rectal endometriosis who are managed by full-thickness disc excision and to compare outcomes of the 2 procedures using a transanal approach. DESIGN: This was a prospective study...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the technique of laparoscopic double discoid resection with a circular stapler for bowel endometriosis. DESIGN: Case report (Canadian Task Force classification III). SETTING: Private hospital in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil. PATIENT: A 33-year-old woman was referred to our service complaining about cyclic dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, chronic pelvic pain, and cyclic dyschezia. Transvaginal ultrasound with bowel preparation showed a 6-cm endometriotic nodule at the retrocervical area, uterosacral ligaments, posterior vaginal fornix, and anterior rectal wall, infiltrating up to the submucosa, 5 cm far from the anal verge...

Endometriosis is the second most common benign female genital disease after uterine myoma. This review discusses the interdisciplinary approach to the treatment of deep infiltrating endometriosis. Endometriosis has been defined as the presence of endometrial glands and stroma outside the internal epithelial lining of the cavum uteri. As a consequence, endometriosis can cause a wide range of symptoms such as chronic pelvic pain, subfertility, dysmenorrhea, deep dyspareunia, cyclical bowel or bladder symptoms (e...

INTRODUCTION: Malignant transformation of intestinal endometriosis occurring in the extraovarian sites is extremely rare. We report a very rare case of clear cell adenocarcinoma arising from endometriosis of the rectum. PRESENTATION OF CASE: An 83-year-old woman was admitted with the complaint of hematochezia. Colonoscopy revealed a tumor around about half of the rectal circumference. Biopsy of the tumor revealed a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma. Low anterior resection was undergone laparoscopically under the diagnosis of rectal carcinoma...

A Müllerian adenosarcoma is an extremely rare tumor characterized by a stromal component of usually low-grade malignancy and by a benign glandular epithelial component. A Müllerian adenosarcoma occurs mainly in the uterus, but also in extrauterine locations. Extrauterine Müllerian adenosarcomas are thought to arise from endometriotic deposits. A 36-year-old female presented to Daegu Catholic University Medical Center with a symptom of loose stool for several months. The imaging studies revealed a rectal mass, so she underwent a laparoscopic low anterior resection...

OBJECTIVE: To verify the hypothesis that in most patients bowel segmental resection to treat endometriosis can be safely performed without creation of a stoma and to discuss the limitations of this statement. DESIGN: Retrospective study (Canadian Task Force classification III). SETTING: Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS: Forty-one women with sigmoid and rectal endometriotic lesions who underwent segmental resection...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the capabilities of standard pelvic MRI with low-resolution pelvic MRI using fast breath-hold sequences to evaluate deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE). METHODS: Sixty-eight consecutive women with suspected DIE were studied with pelvic MRI. A double-acquisition protocol was carried out in each case. High-resolution (HR)-MRI consisted of axial, sagittal, and coronal TSE T2W images, axial TSE T1W, and axial THRIVE. Low-resolution (LR)-MRI was acquired using fast single shot (SSH) T2 and T1 images...
