Thanks to important advances in ultrasound and MR imaging, the diagnostic approach to endometriosis has shifted from diagnostic laparoscopy to a complete pre-therapeutical staging and classification of the extent of the disease. This allows for a more tailored medical and surgical strategy. New surgical techniques including robotics guarantee more precise and tissue-sparing resections of endometriosis lesions with improved results and less complications. New medical treatment options like GnRH antagonist combination therapies offer promising outcomes. Additionally, a targeted therapy based on molecular profiling of the disease is looking to become a reality over the next few years as different international working groups move closer to understanding the phenotypes and genetics behind endometriosis. The new pace in endometriosis science has been made possible by increased awareness and national endometriosis strategies. The coming decade will bring an increasing number of relevant advances and thus more favorable outcomes. This Special Issue aims to focus on these novel advancements in all aspects of endometriosis and adenomyosis, showing the dynamic of the recent development and giving an overview on advances and perspectives.
