Details

Endometriosis is a gynecologic disease with serious implications in women’s health. Currently, its incidence is increasing around the world. Today, there is a growing trend to approach endometriosis with a multidisciplinary team. More and more, centers of expertise are being created in order to provide holistic multidisciplinary care all the while improving scientific research. This book covers every aspect of endometriosis diagnosis and management. It deals with epidemiology and pathogenesis, as well as the classifications of the disease. Current and future diagnostic methods are included. The available medical treatment options are reviewed. Surgical management for endometriosis, endometriomas and pain are discussed.

Different surgical treatments options are covered: open and laparoscopic surgical endoscopic approaches such as robotic surgery are included. The different power sources that can be used in surgical therapy of endometriosis are critically analyzed. Anti-adherent barriers to avoid adhesion formation in surgery are included.

The book reviews the diagnosis and surgical management of deep infiltrating endometriosis, endometrioma, urological endometriosis, and other localizations of the disease, as thoracic endometriosis. New approaches to manage endometrioma (sclerosis of endometriomas) are described. The diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment of the disease is compiled. The management of recurrences of the disease and its risk factors is discussed.

This publication with a special interest in surgical management provides a multidisciplinary vision of the management of endometriosis. It also includes topics on basic science, research, assisted reproductive techniques, and medical treatments. Alternative treatments (such as acupuncture), nutritional, psychological and physical therapy or sexological issues are reviewed. This book can give a global vision of the disease from the point of view of the different specialists involved in the management of the disease. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
