This review summarizes the recent literature concerning new data on the pathogenesis of peritoneal endometriosis and its natural evolution. Indeed, the main concern in endometriosis is the choice of treatment in cases of infertility problems: medical or surgical. This concern could hypothetically be avoided if endometriosis were considered as a spontaneously regressive phenomenon. The present paper also discusses the risk of recurrence and the results of in-vitro fertilization and embryo transfer in cases of ovarian endometriosis. Whatever type of surgery is performed, the results of in-vitro fertilization and embryo transfer are not impaired, especially if damage to the ovarian cortex is avoided. Further studies are required to determine if oocytes from endometriosis patients are altered and could be responsible for the development of lower quality embryos. [less ▲]

For patients who are planning to have chemotherapy, radiotherapy or to undergo bilateral oophorectomy, the loss of ovarian function will result in premature ovarian menopause and loss of fertility. Embryo preservation is not an option for single women or married women because delaying treatment for at least 2 months of in-vitro fertilization cycles is inappropriate and may be life-threatening. This study reports on the indications for ovarian tissue cryobanking and the state of the art of this method in preserving fertility in women with iatrogenic premature menopause. [less ▲]

Various non-hysteroscopic procedures have been developed in the attempt to treat dysfunctional uterine bleeding that fails to respond to medical treatment efficiently and easily. Among these procedures is low-dose laser radiation of the endometrium with the diode source, which is characterized by the highest incidence of amenorrhea. [less ▲]

Transhysteroscopic myomectomy has proved to be safe and effective with experienced operators. The use of the continuous flow hysteroscope and preoperative monitoring of intrauterine pressure has contributed to the prevention of fluid intravasion accidents. Effectiveness has been demonstrated in a number of recently published long-term studies. [less ▲]

Because a wide variety of conditions can be diagnosed hysteroscopically, hysteroscopy has become a diagnostic gold standard. Through "operative" hysteroscopes, both the electrical current of the resectoscope and the energy of the neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser have been effective tools in many cases and presented a new alternative to laparotomy and hysterectomy. The most frequent procedures are 1) endometrial ablation and partial endometrial ablation, 2) myomectomy for submucous myomas, 3) two-step myomectomy for large submucosal and intramural myomas, 4) hysteroscopic management of müllerian defects, and 5) hysteroscopic management of intrauterine adhesions.
