Rezumat: Endometriosis is a chronic disease, very common among women of reproductive age, characterized by the presence of active endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. The patients with severe endometriosis have a complex of different symptoms, including painful menstruation, nonmenstrual pelvic pain, dyspareunia and painful defecation. These symptoms cause profound distress and a significant reduction in their quality of life. The concept of quality of life is one of the most important directions in contemporary medicine. The interest shown in the medical world in quality-of-life issues for patients is demonstrated by the number of articles on quality-of-life issues published in prestigious journals and submitted to the PubMed database. Quality of life is represented by social, physical and mental well-being as well as by people’s ability to carry out everyday activities. Completion of endometriosis symptom assessment questionnaires before surgery and at one year postoperatively may be useful to predict the degree of change in patients’ perceived quality of life after endometriosis surgery.
Cuvinte cheie: endometriosis, quality of life, assessment.
