Endometriosis Update 2016


Imesch, Patrick; Fink, Daniel (2016). Endometriosis Update 2016. Praxis, 105(5):253-257.

Abstract

Endometriosis is a common gynecologic benign disease, affecting 6–10% of women of reproductive age. The disease is often associated with dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, chronic pelvic pain and infertility. The exact mechanism of the pathogenesis of endometriosis has not yet been fully elucidated, therefore, current medical therapeutic options are more symptom-oriented than causal. The aim of the present work is to summarize the current diagnostic and therapeutic options.
