Details about Endometriosis Pathogenesis, Clinical Impact and Management
Endometriosis Pathogenesis, Clinical Impact and Management PDF free download – Endometriosis is one of the most intriguing diseases for women during the reproductive age. It was almost a century ago (1921) that the first paper by John Sampson described the chocolate cysts of the ovary, and a few years later (1927), the publication which relates endometriosis to a “menstrual dissemination” came out. Anyhow, still today pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatments of endometriosis are discussed. The present book collects the most updated topics on endometriosis, and these will contribute to improve the knowledge of the disease and as consequence the management of the patients. The risk factors for women to develop endometriosis are a large variety, going from genetics to lifestyles, including the role of endocrine disruptor substances deriving from the environment (food, air). Starting from the concept that endometriosis is an endocrine/inflammatory disorder, the pathogenetic aspects of endometriosis are discussed in terms of immunological factors and metabolomic characteristics. The clinical implication of this basic science study is to discover new tools for a noninvasive diagnosis of endometriosis, considering that imaging is already offering good parameters for an early diagnosis of endometriosis.
