Parietal, appendiceal, pleuropulmonary and diaphragmatic endometriosis represent 5% of endometriosis cases. Diagnosis and management of these extra-genital localisations are described according to the literature. Parietal endometriosis usually requires large resection of the tumor. Appendiceal endometriosis is frequently observed in cases of digestive endometriosis. Induration or rigidity of the appendix due to the presence of deep infiltrating endometriosis justifies appendicectomy. Thoracic and diaphragmatic endometriosis is characterized by the presence of typical symptoms during the perimenstrual periode. Medical treatment obtaining therapeutic amenorrhea is firstly administered and surgery is indicated in cases of symptoms recurrence. [less ▲]

Stage I and II endometriosis is defined by a r-AFS score respectively ranging from 1 to 5 and from 6 to 15. This mild, superficial endometriosis is a very common pathology occurring in infertile women. Nevertheless, these women with stage I/II endometriosis have usually few pelvic pain. This review summarizes the recent literature concerning new data on the pathogenesis of peritoneal endometriosis and its clinical management. Retrograde menstruation, peritoneal adhesion of shed endometrial tissue, and outgrowth of endometrial cells, glands and stroma, are essential elements in the pathogenesis of endometriosis according to Sampson's classic implantation theory. Nevertheless, exact pathophysiology of endometriosis remains unknown. Superficial endometriotic lesions observed by laparoscopy have to be treated. Surgical procedure is not difficult for stage I and II of endometriosis. Surgical procedure remains controversial. Carbon dioxide (CO2) Laser can be used for laparoscopic destruction of endometriosis. Newer procedures, such as SurgiTouch (Lumenis), are more effective in vaporization and decrease the risk thermal damage of contiguous structures. The monopolar scissors can also be used in order to excise the peritoneal endometriotic lesions. Medical treatment may be usefull if surgical treatment is not complete or if the pelvic cavity is hypervascularized. In these cases, Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone agonists (Gn-RHa) are the most common and effective treatment. [less ▲]

Endometriosis is a chronic disease usually diagnosed at adult age, even the symptoms begin at adolescence. The medical history could help for the diagnosis and could select the patients for medical or surgical treatment. The main criterion is the description of severe dysmenorrhea necessitating the prescription of oral contraceptive pill early after the menarcha. The early diagnosis is a major issue in the evolution of the disease which is caracterized by physical, psyco-social and sexual repercussions. [less ▲]

In order to assess adequately the effectiveness of danazol, Gestrinone, and Buserelin, a prospective nonrandomized study was initiated in 126 patients with laparoscopically confirmed ovarian endometriosis. After hormonal therapy, laparotomy with microsurgical resection of endometriotic cysts was carried out. Regression (greater than 25%) of ovarian endometriosis was noted in 30%, 34%, and 73% of cases after danazol, Gestrinone, and Buserelin, respectively. The pregnancy rate in moderate endometriosis (53%) differed significantly from the rate obtained in severe endometriosis (45%). The highest percentages were found after Buserelin therapy. In conclusion, Buserelin emerged superior to danazol or Gestrinone treatment. Nevertheless, hormonal treatment leads to an incomplete suppression of ovarian endometriotic implants and this suggests the necessity of surgically removing invasive ovarian endometriosis. [less ▲]

Endometriosis, defined by the development of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, is a benign disease responsible for infertility and pelvic pain. The diagnosis based on a detailed gynaecological history and a careful clinical examination should be done as early as possible in order to treat patients correctly. Medical treatment is not appropriate in all cases and surgical treatment should be proposed but morbidity is related to the severity of the lesion. Ectopic implantation of endometrial cells needs complex interactions between host tissue and epithelial endometrial cells. The conditions for the development of endometriosis are oestrogeno-dependent growth of endometrial cells, induction of angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. Principal cellular and molecular factors of angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis and fibrosis should be identified in order to develop new therapeutic strategies of endometriosis. [less ▲]

In diabetic patients, the use of drug-eluting stents (paclitaxel-PES or sirolimus-SES) reduces the risk of restenosis as compared to bare-metal stents. However, the risk of (very) late thrombosis is higher with drug-eluting stents than with bare-metal stents. All together, the incidence of major cardiovascular events is reduced with drug-eluting stents, mainly resulting from a diminution of revascularisation procedures rather than from a reduction in myocardial infarcts or cardiovascular deaths. Attempts to compare SES and PES gave discordant results in both randomised trials and registries. Efficacious antiplatelet therapy in the long run is mandatory in all diabetic patients treated with drug-eluting stents. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: The expanded endonasal approach of the cranio-cervical junction provides comfortable working space while avoiding some of the disadvantages of the transoral route. We report a purely endonasal endoscopic resection of the odontoid process for basilar invagination in a patient with a Chiari type I malformation, without posterior decompression or fusion. CASE REPORT: A 54-year-old female patient presented with cranial nerve and brainstem deficits. CT and MRI showed a Chiari type I malformation and compression of the medulla by basilar invagination of the odontoid process. The tip of the latter was displaced up to the bulbo-pontine sulcus. The odontoid process was resected via the expanded endoscopic endonasal approach, without additional posterior decompression or fusion. The post-operative course was uneventful, including the absence of velopharyngeal insufficiency. Neurological deficits regressed rapidly. The preoperative cervical pain virtually disappeared. At 9 months follow-up, the patient had normal activity with minimal residual neurological deficits. Post-op dynamic radiography and CT showed stability of the cranio-cervical junction. CONCLUSION: Decompression of the bulbomedullary junction by purely endoscopic transnasal resection of the odontoid process is well tolerated and efficient. Immediate stabilization is not mandatory in all cases of congenital causes of basilar invagination. [less ▲]

Hysteroscopic resection of an intrauterine septum may benefit patients suffering from infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss. A partial or complete uterine septum can be easily resected using a Nd-YAG laser. If present, the vaginal septum may also be removed during the same procedure. The reproductive outcome of women treated by operative hysteroscopy for an intrauterine septum is reviewed. To avoid pregnancy in a non-communicating rudimentary horn, the removal of the horn and the homolateral tube may be performed by either bipolar coagulation or a CO2 laser. [less ▲]

The rationale for the conservative management of ectopic pregnancy is the preservation of reproductive potential. Removal of trophoblast through a linear incision (salpingotomy) can be easily performed by endoscopy. The injection of vasopressin into the broad ligament is required in less than 10% of cases and its routine use is not recommended because of the risk of severe side-effects. The techniques in cases of isthmic or cornual tubal pregnancy are also described. Other alternatives such as expectant management, methotrexate, RU 486 and prostaglandins have also recently been proposed. Although methotrexate therapy has been demonstrated to be effective in cases of unruptured tubal pregnancy, further studies are needed to determine whether or not this medical therapy is a safer option than laparoscopic surgery and to compare the subsequent intrauterine and recurrent ectopic pregnancy rates. Endoscopic salpingotomy is an efficacious procedure. Indeed, residual trophoblast is found in only 5% of cases after this surgical procedure. In these cases of persistent trophoblast, methotrexate is proposed as the medical approach of choice. Evaluation of the postoperative fertility after linear salpingotomy demonstrates an intrauterine pregnancy rate of 63% and a recurrent ectopic pregnancy rate of 8%. In conclusion, endoscopic management of tubal pregnancy is a safe and efficacious therapy. The contraindications are relative and depend essentially on the surgeon's experience. [less ▲]

Endosulfan is an organochlorine pesticide that was recently labeled as a persistent organic pollutant, but it is still widely employed, particularly in developing countries. The goal of this study is to evaluate the acute (LC50) and chronic effects (developmental and behavioural traits) of this insecticide on Rana dalmatina tadpoles after exposure to ecologically relevant concentrations (0.005, 0.01, and 0.05 mg/L) by applying video-tracking techniques to evaluate the quantitative effect of endosulfan on amphibian behavioural patterns. The 96 h LC50 value was 0.074 mg endosulfan/L. Tadpoles chronically exposed to 0.01 and 0.05 mg endosulfan/L underwent high mortality rate, decreased larval growth, delayed development, and increased incidence of malformations, and they did not reach metamorphosis by the end of the experiment. Moreover, tadpoles exposed to these concentrations exhibited several abnormalities in swimming patterns, such as shorter distance moved, swirling, resting, and unusual use of space. The exposure to 0.005 mg endosulfan/L did not cause any significant effects on behaviour, larval growth, or development, but we observed a significant decrease in both survival and time to metamorphosis. We showed that developmental abnormalities are dose-dependent and that the pesticide effects could differ depending on the endosulfan concentration and the species tested. We also validated the hypothesis that behavioural analysis, along with the use of new analytical methods, could be a useful tool in amphibian ecotoxicological studies. [less ▲]
