The Evidence for the Management of Endometriosis


The Evidence for the Management of Endometriosis

C Farquhar et al. Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol. .


This review article has focussed on identifying the evidence from randomized controlled trials for the medical and surgical management of endometriosis. A critical summary of the medical management has shown that there is little difference in effectiveness of various medical treatments, but there are differences in the side-effect profiles. Few randomized controlled trials have been undertaken in surgery, but these have shown that surgical management is effective in the management of both painful symptoms and subfertility.
