Special Issue Information

Endometriosis is a chronic inflammatory disease that leads to pain and infertility, and occurs primarily in women of reproductive age. Endometriosis has a significant impact on women's health and health care costs. Endometriosis affects 6–10 ​% of reproductive-aged women and more than 175 million women worldwide. Most women with endometriosis suffer physically and emotionally in their day-to-day function as a result of these painful symptoms. Despite current research efforts, diagnosis and treatment options remain lacking. There remains doubt as to whether MRI is redundant and whether transvaginal ultrasound examination should be the only diagnostic method. The number of surgeries performed for endometriosis worldwide is ever increasing; thus, measuring the magnitude of the effect of surgery is of the utmost importance in order to define a therapeutic balance between benefits, harms and costs in various clinical conditions. We aim to present a selection of papers in this Special Issue that will focus on the optimum diagnostic techniques employed to treat this disease, as well as novel therapeutic approaches. We welcome you to submit original papers, reviews, and perspectives on the challenges present and information available with regard to cutting-edge endometriosis diagnosis and treatment.
