Endometriosis is a benign gynaecological condition which causes pain symptoms and infertility. The diagnosis of endometriosis is based on transvaginal ultrasonography; additional imaging techniques (such as magnetic resonance imaging and virtual colonoscopy) may be used in selected patients. Endometriosis can be treated by hormonal therapies or by surgery. The choice of treatment depends on symptoms, desire of pregnancy, comorbidities, and preference of the patients. Novel drugs are under development or have recently been introduced for the treatment of endometriosis-associated pain. Surgical excision of endometriosis has been shown to significantly improve the pain symptoms; however, it may be associated with intraoperative, short-term and long-term complications.
This Special Issue aims to provide an update on the diagnosis and hormonal and surgical treatment of endometriosis.
Prof. Dr. Simone Ferrero
