Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Endometriosis is a chronic gynecological disease affecting about 10% of women of childbearing age. It can affect various pelvic and abdominal organs and leads to a wide spectrum of symptoms including pain and infertility. Potential organ infiltration, e.g., into the ovaries, bowel, and bladder, can also lead to disfunction of affected organs. There are various hypotheses regarding the etiology, but this is still unclear. Endometriosis is characterized by the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterus; these lesions are spread out in the abdominal cavity and differ in size. Superficial and deep infiltrating endometriosis is possible according to the type of organ or peritoneal infiltration.

The lesions can grow especially while pregnancy and relapses are possible. Medical or surgical therapy could be administered, while laparoscopy staging of endometriosis could be performed and the removal of endometriosis is possible to improve rate of fertility. Enzian classification is a tool for staging deep infiltrating endometriosis.

In recent years, the importance of economic, clinical and even diagnostic and therapeutic aspects is realized.

The aim of this Special Issue, entitled “Clinical Aspects of Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis”, is to collect and publish original articles as well as reviews demonstrating advances in the diagnostic and therapeutic research field of endometriosis. In summary, better understanding in this field could also help clinicians better guide their patient toward suitable treatment decisions.
