Abdominal Wall Endometriosis: Two Case Reports and Literature Review


Endo is still a poorly understood condition. At our institute we are constantly looking for the latest research regarding endometriosis therapy. This is an very recent article which we hope will help you understand at least this part of endometriosis treatment.

If this article seems to be relevant to your situation, please reach out to us and Dr. Steven Vasilev, our director. Since we are monitoring this research as it develops, we can use it to help you beat endo and get your life back.  We use robotic surgery exclusively and Dr Steven Vasilev is renowned for his uber expertise in robotic endo excision, particularly in advance and recurrent cases.

Background and objectives: Abdominal wall endometriosis, also known as scar endometriosis, is a rare condition that is becoming increasingly common. The recent rise in incidence is attributed primarily to the surge of cesarean births, figures that could be influenced in a positive manner considering the improvements brought towards the ultrasound diagnostic methods that have been made in recent years. Materials and Methods: Here we report the cases of two Caucasian women of 38- (G2P2) and 36-years old (G1P1), both subjected to an ultrasound examination due to a specific symptomatic panel reported during anamnesis. Independently of the current status, in the first patient, there were no reported symptom-specific associations with endometriosis, but she had a known history of mild hereditary thrombophilia; the second woman suffered from two conditions positively associated with endometriosis. Results: In both cases, abnormal structures were revealed, with the diagnostic(s) of endometriosis being histologically confirmed based on a set of features observed during the investigation. Conclusions: This paper aims to highlight the importance of reducing cesarean births and to consider the diagnosis of scar endometriosis in women with a history of obstetric or gynaecological surgeries who present with cyclic, recurrent abdominal pain.
