Costs of endometriosis in Austria: a survey of direct and indirect costs

What is the societal burden of endometriosis-associated symptoms? a prospective Belgian study.
It was showed that direct and indirect costs attributable to endometriosis-associated symptoms are substantial and may decrease productivity loss, quality of life impairment and healthcare consumption and consequently reduce total costs to patients and society. Expand
Krankheitskosten bei Endometriose
With costs of 1.96 billion Euros and in younger populations (average age 36.7 years), long periods where patients are unable to work increases the risk of job losses, therefore, intensive medical care should aim at patients becoming symptom-free. Expand

The burden of endometriosis: costs and quality of life of women with endometriosis and treated in referral centres.
The economic burden associated with endometriosis treated in referral centres is high and is similar to other chronic diseases (diabetes, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis). It arises predominantly from productivity loss, and is predicted by decreased quality of life. Expand
Actuarial analysis of private payer administrative claims data for women with endometriosis.
Women with endometriosis have a high hospital admission rate and surgical procedure rate and a high incidence of comorbid conditions, and these women incur total medical costs that are, on average, 63% higher than medical costs for the average woman in a commercially insured group. Expand
