1. Pain, mast cells, and nerves in peritoneal, ovarian, and deep infiltrating endometriosis.
Match Strength: 8.670
OBJECTIVE: To detect and quantify mast cells in peritoneal, ovarian, and deep infiltrating endometriosis and to study the relationship between mast cells and nerves in endometriosis. DESIGN: Prospective histological and immunohistochemical study. SETTING: University of Brussels, Belgium. PATIENT(S): Sixty-nine women undergoing laparoscopic excision of endometriosis for pain. Thirty-seven biopsies of normal tissue were obtained from women without endometriosis. INTERVENTION(S): Excision of endometriosis from different anatomical locations. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Immunohistochemistry with ... Read More »

2. Regulated upon activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) and monocyte chemotactic protein 1 in follicular fluid accumulate differentially in patients with and without endometriosis undergoing in vitro fertilization.
Match Strength: 8.476
OBJECTIVE: To compare the amount of regulated upon activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) and monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1) in follicular fluid (FF) of patients with and without endometriosis and to determine their oocyte fertilization and pregnancy rates. DESIGN: Case-control study. SETTING: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Luebeck, Germany. PATIENT(S): Thirty-two women with endometriosis stages I-IV and 28 women without endometriosis, both groups surgically and histologically confirmed. INTERVENTION(S): ... Read More »

3. Charcoal peritonitis causing chronic pelvic pain: a unique complication following bariatric surgery.
Match Strength: 7.976
Routine pathologic examination of a specimen transformed a common diagnosis of endometriosis into a search for an unusual cause of recurrent pelvic pain. Laparoscopy was suspicious for endometriosis, but instead on microscopic examination a black pigment of unknown origin was present. In a subsequent interview with her gynecologist the 38-year-old patient divulged a previous Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP), followed 8 weeks later by a suicide attempt by overdosing on medication, treated with charcoal gastric lavage. Her tiny gastric pouch was perforated and she developed charcoal peritonitis. ... Read More »

4. Comparative study on the efficacy of Yiweining and Gestrinone for post-operational treatment of stage III endometriosis.
Match Strength: 6.999
OBJECTIVE: To observe the clinical efficacy and safety of Yiweining (YWN) and gestrinone (GT) in treating post-operational patients of stage III endometriosis (EM-III). METHODS: Fifty-two patients of EM-III after operation were randomly assigned into three groups, the YWN group (20 patients) was treated through oral intake of YWN 200 ml, twice a day; the GT group (19 patients) treated with gestrinone 2.5 mg, twice every week, with the medication starting from the 7th post-operational day and lasting for 6 months. The control group (13 patients) was untreated. Six months was one therapeutic ... Read More »

5. Endoscopic management of endometriosis.
Match Strength: 6.755
Randomized clinical trials in the effectiveness of laparoscopic surgery in the management of endometriosis associated with chronic pelvic pain show a 66% to 80% response rate. There is a 20% to 30% ''placebo'' response rate. The value of surgery for infertile patients with minimal and mild disease is still debated but is most likely small. In advanced disease, surgery clearly improves outcome, although the surgery is more challenging. After an initial unsuccessful surgery for restoration of fertility in patients with advanced endometriosis, in vitro fertilization rather than repeat surgery is ... Read More »

6. Laparoscopic ureteroneocystostomy with vesicopsoas hitch: nonrefluxing ureteral reimplantation using cystoscopy-assisted submucosal tunneling.
Match Strength: 3.144
PURPOSE: We described laparoscopic nonrefluxing ureteral reimplantation with a psoas hitch using a submucosal tunneling technique combined with cystoscopy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed this operation on two female patients. The first patient had a right lower-ureteral stricture after a laparoscopy-assisted vaginal hysterectomy, and the second patient had a left distal-ureteral stricture after a left laparoscopic oophorectomy, which was performed for endometriosis. We performed laparoscopic intravesical ureteral reimplantations with a psoas hitch using submucosal tunneling after a ... Read More »
