Laparoscopic Segmental Bowel Resection for Deep Infiltrating Colorectal Endometriosis
A Retrospective Follow-up of Patients After Laparoscopic Segmental Bowel Resection for Deep Infiltrating Colorectal Endometriosis
This study is executed to evaluate the outcome on quality of life, pain, sexuality, pregnancy rate and recurrence rate after a fertility sparing multidisciplinary CO2 laser laparoscopic radical excision of deep infiltrating colorectal endometriosis with a bowel resection.

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).

Observational
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Not Provided
Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Description:
The diagnosis of endometriosis was confirmed by histologic examination of resected lesions.
Non-Probability Sample
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.
Endometriosis
  • 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).
