Peritoneal endometriosis, ovarian endometriosis, and adenomyotic nodules of the rectovaginal septum are three different entities.
TLDR
Peritoneal, ovarian and rectovaginal endometriotic lesions must be considered as three separate entities with different pathogeneses with a close relation with their mesodermal müllerian origin. Expand
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in endometriosis.
TLDR
Similarities in VEGF content were observed in the glandular epithelium of the eutopic endometrium of women with endometriosis and red lesions, suggesting that endometiosis probably arises from the peritoneal seeding of viable endometrial cells during retrograde menstruation and that red lesions can be considered as the first stage of implantation. Expand
Ureteral endometriosis: a complication of rectovaginal endometriotic (adenomyotic) nodules.
TLDR
Ureteral endometiosis was found in 4.4% of patients with rectovaginal endometriotic (adenomyotic) nodules and should be performed in all women with rectvaginal nodules > or = 3 cm to prevent nonreversible loss of renal function. Expand
Large ovarian endometriomas.
TLDR
Histological data demonstrated that the epithelium covering the ovary which is the mesothelium can invaginate in the ovarian cortex, strongly suggesting the metaplasia theory in the pathogenesis of ovarian endometrioma. Expand
Cumulative pregnancy rate after ICSI-IVF in patients with colorectal endometriosis: results of a multicentre study.
TLDR
The authors' data confirm that ICSI-IVF offers a high CPR per patient, however, determinant factors of CPR should be taken into account when informing couples of their options. Expand
Does ovarian surgery for endometriomas impair the ovarian response to gonadotropin?
TLDR
Endometrioma surgery by internal wall vaporization does not impair IVF outcome, and a similar IVF-ET outcome was observed in patients with endometriosis after ablation ofendometriomas compared to women with tubal factors. Expand
Thiamine Status in Humans and Content of Phosphorylated Thiamine Derivatives in Biopsies and Cultured Cells
TLDR
A novel finding is the presence of ThTP and AThTP in poorly differentiated fast-growing cells, suggesting a hitherto unsuspected link between these compounds and cell division or differentiation. Expand
Rectovaginal septum, endometriosis or adenomyosis: laparoscopic management in a series of 231 patients.
TLDR
A series of 231 cases of deep-infiltrating endometriosis of the rectovaginal septum is presented and it is suggested that this form of disease must be considered as a specific disease which originates from the Mullerian rests present in the rectvaginalSeptum and be called 'rectovaginals adenomyosis'. Expand
Expression of interstitial collagenase (matrix metalloproteinase-1) is related to the activity of human endometriotic lesions.
TLDR
Correlation of matrix metalloproteinase-1 expression with activity of endometriotic tissue suggests its involvement in tissue remodeling and bleeding, and possibly in the secondary shedding and reimplantation of endometricriotic lesions. Expand
Immunohistochemical study of the proliferation index, oestrogen receptors and progesterone receptors A and B in leiomyomata and normal myometrium during the menstrual cycle and under
TLDR
The results suggest that leiomyomata may be under the influence of progesterone which may play a major role in their growth. Expand
