Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain; Sexuality; Quality of life; Fertility rate; Complication rate; Recurrence rate [ Time Frame: a median follow-up of 27 months (range 16 - 40 months) after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Economic life circumstances [ Time Frame: a median follow-up of 27 months (range 16 - 40 months) after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

The diagnosis of endometriosis was confirmed by histologic examination of resected lesions.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
1
All women (n=45) who had undergone CO2 laser laparoscopic radical excision of deep infiltrating endometriosis with active involvement of the colorectal surgeon performing a bowel resection were selected retrospectively from the list of all patients (n=more than 400) operated at the Leuven University Fertility Centre (LUFc) between September 2004 and July 2006.
Procedure: multidisciplinary laparoscopy
Laparoscopic segmental bowel resection for deep infiltrating colorectal endometriosis performed by an experienced colorectal surgeon.
Other: Questionnaires
All 45 patients were asked to complete the Oxford Endometriosis Quality of Life questionnaire, a sexual activity questionnaire, visual analogue scales (VAS) for dysmenorroe, chronic pelvic pain and deep dyspareunia, and to answer questions about medication and fertility, to compare their status before surgery and at the moment of the evaluation (December 2008).

Detailed Description:

Patients

All women (n=45) who had undergone fertility sparing CO2 laser laparoscopic radical excision of deep infiltrating endometriosis with bowel resection were selected retrospectively from the list of all patients (n=more than 500, of whom slightly more than 50% with endometriosis) operated at the Leuven University Fertility Centre (LUFc) between September 2004 and September 2006.

Questionnaires

All 45 patients were asked to complete the Oxford Endometriosis Quality of Life questionnaire (27), a sexual activity questionnaire (28), visual analogue scales (VAS) for dysmenorroe, chronic pelvic pain and deep dyspareunia, and to answer questions about medication and fertility, to compare their status before surgery and at the moment of the evaluation (December 2008).

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   19 Years to 43 Years
