M. Antonovici, F. Frîncu, E. Brătilă, O.M. Ionescu, H. Roman, C. Mehedințu


Rezumat: Deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) is defined as the infiltration of endometriotic implants deeper than 5 mm from the peritoneal surface. When the lesions infiltrate the muscularis propria layer of the rectum or sigmoid, we talk about intestinal endometriosis (IE), the most common form of extragenital endometriosis, which affects, according to various studies, up to 37% of women with endometriosis. Endometriosis is an underdiagnosed condition mainly due to the lack of cheap and noninvasive diagnostic tools. Although transvaginal ultrasonography (TVUS) is considered the first line in the imaging diagnosis of endometriosis, sonovaginography, endorectal ultrasonography (ERUS), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and coloscan are becoming increasingly important in the evaluation of patients with DIE, completing the preoperative assessment of endometriotic lesions, an assessment that needs to be done as accurately as possible, both for the purpose of counseling patients and choosing the optimal therapeutic approach.
Cuvinte cheie: endometriosis, deep infiltrative endometriosis, imaging diagnosis.
