101. Ovulation suppression for endometriosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Ovulation suppression for endometriosis. Endometriosis is the finding of endometrial glands or stroma in sites other than the uterine cavity. Endometriosis appears to be an oestrogen dependent condition. This hormonal dependency has prompted the therapeutic use of ovulation suppression agents, in an effort to improve subsequent fertility.To assess the effectiveness of ovulation suppression agents, including danazol, progestins and oral contraceptives, in the treatment of endometriosis (...) or a GnRH with oral contraception in women with endometriosis. A total of twenty three RCTs comparing an ovulation suppression agent with placebo or no treatment, or a suppressive agent with danazol or a GnRH with oral contraception were identified.Two review authors independently extracted data and assessed quality. We contacted study authors for additional information. Quality was assessed by of method of randomization,allocation concealment, blinding, completeness of follow-up, presence or absence

102. Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device (LNG-IUD) for symptomatic endometriosis following surgery. (Abstract)

Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device (LNG-IUD) for symptomatic endometriosis following surgery. Various options exist for treating endometriosis, including ovarian suppression therapy, surgical treatment or a combination of these strategies. Surgical treatment of endometriosis sets out to remove visible areas of endometriosis and restore anatomy by division of adhesions. The aim of medical therapy is to inhibit growth of endometriotic implants by suppression of ovarian steroids (...) and induction of a hypo-estrogenic state. Postoperative treatment with a hormone-releasing intrauterine system, using levonorgestrel (LNG-IUS), has been suggested.To determine if postoperative use of an LNG-IUS in women with endometriosis improves pain symptoms associated with menstruation and reduces recurrence compared with treatment with surgery only, placebo or systemic hormones.The following databases were searched: (1) Cochrane Menstrual Disorders and Subfertility Group Specialised Register

103. Laparoscopic helium plasma coagulation for the treatment of endometriosis (IPG171)

is used to treat endometriosis. Endometriosis is a common condition. Women with endometriosis have deposits of endometrial tissue, which should be confined to the lining of the uterus, outside the uterus. Symptoms include pelvic pain, dyspareunia, dysmenorrhoea or infertility. Most women with endometriosis can be treated with analgesia and hormone treatment. Women who do not respond may be offered minimally invasive surgery to excise or vaporise the endometriotic deposits, most commonly (...) by electrocautery or laser through a laparoscope. Women with very severe symptoms may be offered more radical treatment with hysterectomy and removal of the ovaries. Laparoscopic helium plasma coagulation of endometriosis is another way of vaporising endometrial deposits. Using a laparoscope, an ionised beam of helium gas is directed at endometrial deposits to destroy the affected tissue. and for this guidance.

110. Peritoneal fluid, endometriosis, and ciliary beat frequency in the human fallopian tube. (Abstract)

Peritoneal fluid, endometriosis, and ciliary beat frequency in the human fallopian tube. Endometriosis and infertility are known to be associated, but it is unclear whether endometriosis causes infertility. We used contrast analogue enhancement to study the effect of peritoneal fluid from women with early stage endometriosis on the ciliary beat frequency of human fallopian tube epithelium. We obtained peritoneal fluid from six women with early stage endometriosis and from six fertile women (...) with no evidence of endometriosis to use as controls. Fallopian tubes from hysterectomy specimens were collected from 17 women. The difference in ciliary beat frequency between fallopian tubes exposed to peritoneal fluids of women with and without endometriosis increased with the duration of incubation (mean difference at 24 h 1.35 Hz, 95% CI 0.94-1.75, p=0.01). At 24 h, ciliary beat frequency was significantly lower in the incubations with peritoneal fluid from women with endometriosis than controls (4.29

of endometriomas reduces pain; the most important factor is complete removal of endometrial tissue. Mere evacuation of an endometrioma always results in rapid recurrence. The removal of deep tissue colonies relieves pain and the effect may last for years. Surgical interruption of pelvic nerve pathways does not increase the effectiveness of surgery. The effect of hysterectomy or ovarectomy on endometriosis with pain has been studied little. The surgical treatment of endometriosis requires much experience (...) . Little data exist on the optimal dosage of GnRH-agonists. Although the NSAIDs and hormonal drugs suppress the pain caused by endometriosis, they have little effect on the progression of the disease. After discontinuing medication, the pain often returns rapidly. The surgical treatment of endometriosis removes pain, producing more lasting effects than drugs do. Laparoscopic removal of endometrial tissue is an effective treatment for pain related to stage I-II endometriosis. The surgical removal

115. Modern combined oral contraceptives for pain associated with endometriosis. (Abstract)

Modern combined oral contraceptives for pain associated with endometriosis. Endometriosis is a major women's health-care problem. It causes pain and/or infertility, and affects millions of women worldwide. Endometriosis is defined according to histological criteria by the presence of tissue resembling endometrium in sites outside the uterus, most commonly the ovaries and peritoneum. The aim of treatment has been to remove the deposits of ectopic endometrium that are thought to be responsible (...) for the symptoms of endometriosis. This can be achieved surgically by destroying or removing the implants; medical therapies induce atrophy within the hormonally-dependent ectopic endometrium. The duration of hormonal treatment may be limited by unwanted side effects. There is some evidence, however, from epidemiological research that current use of the combined oral contraceptive pill (OCP) is associated with a reduced incidence of endometriosis. The combined pill has the great advantage over other hormonal

116. Ovulation suppression for endometriosis. (Abstract)

Ovulation suppression for endometriosis. Although the etiology of endometriosis is unknown, several theories exist, the most popular of which is retrograde menstruation. As endometriosis can only be diagnosed by laparoscopy, neither the incidence (annual occurrence) nor the prevalence (proportion of the population affected) of endometriosis is known. The association between endometriosis and infertility isn't clear in Stage I (minimal) and Stage II (mild) endometriosis. Endometriosis appears (...) to be an estrogen dependent condition. At the time of menopause, most endometriosis becomes quiescent. This hormonal dependency prompted researchers to seek agents which would suppress ovarian activity.To determine effectiveness of a) ovulation suppression with danazol, medroxy progesterone acetate, gestrinone, combined oral contraceptive pills and GnRH analogues versus placebo or no treatment and b) any of the above agents versus danazol, for the treatment of endometriosis explained infertility in terms

117. Progestagens and anti-progestagens for pain associated with endometriosis. (Abstract)

Progestagens and anti-progestagens for pain associated with endometriosis. Endometriosis is a gynaecological condition that presents either with the problem of infertility or with painful symptoms. The clinical observation of an apparent resolution of symptoms during pregnancy gave rise to the concept of treating patients with a pseudo-pregnancy regime. Initially combinations of high dose oestrogens and progestagens were used but this was subsequently replaced by progestogens alone. More (...) therapies.Progestagens appear to be an effective therapy for the painful symptoms associated with endometriosis. Gestrinone is as effective as other established medical therapies (danazol and GnRH analogues).The limited available data suggests that both continuous progestagens and anti-progestagens are effective therapies in the treatment of painful symptoms associated with endometriosis. Progestagens given in the luteal phase are not effective. These conclusions should be accepted cautiously due to a lack of data.

118. Danazol for pelvic pain associated with endometriosis. (Abstract)

Danazol for pelvic pain associated with endometriosis. Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial tissue (stromal and glandular) outside the normal uterine cavity. Conventional medical and surgical treatments for endometriosis aim to remove or decrease deposits of ectopic endometrium. The observation that hyperandrogenic states (an excess of male hormone) induce atrophy of the endometrium has led to the use of androgens in the treatment of endometriosis. Danazol is one (...) of these treatments used. The efficacy of danazol is based on its ability to produce a high androgen/low estrogen environment (a pseudo menopause) which results in the atrophy of endometriotic implants and thus an improvement in painful symptoms.To determine the effectiveness of danazol compared to placebo or no treatment in the treatment of the symptoms and signs, other than infertility, of endometriosis in women of reproductive age.The Menstrual Disorders Group search strategy was used to identify randomised
