We present the case of a young woman at 16 weeks' gestation who presented to a peripheral hospital with severe recurrent hemoperitoneum related to severe deep endometriosis infiltrating the left parametrium. She underwent 2 surgical open procedures in emergency, followed by pregnancy loss. Deep endometriosis infiltrated the rectum, the vagina, and the left parametrium, leading to stenosis of the left ureter and advanced destruction of the left kidney. Ovarian reserve was low with an antimullerian hormone level at .6 ng/mL. To improve endometriosis-related symptoms and preserve fertility, a laparoscopic conservative rectal and ureteral management was proposed with an aim to relieve symptoms, avoid further destruction of the left kidney, preserve the right splanchnic nerves and inferior hypogastric plexus, and enhance spontaneous conception. We performed a combined vaginal-laparoscopic approach that consisted of vaginal infiltration resection, adhesiolysis, rectal shaving, ureterolysis, and restoration of the permeability of the fallopian tubes. Seven months after surgery the patient spontaneously conceived and is doing well

Abstract

We present the case of a young woman at 16 weeks' gestation who presented to a peripheral hospital with severe recurrent hemoperitoneum related to severe deep endometriosis infiltrating the left parametrium. She underwent 2 surgical open procedures in emergency, followed by pregnancy loss. Deep endometriosis infiltrated the rectum, the vagina, and the left parametrium, leading to stenosis of the left ureter and advanced destruction of the left kidney. Ovarian reserve was low with an antimullerian hormone level at .6 ng/mL. To improve endometriosis-related symptoms and preserve fertility, a laparoscopic conservative rectal and ureteral management was proposed with an aim to relieve symptoms, avoid further destruction of the left kidney, preserve the right splanchnic nerves and inferior hypogastric plexus, and enhance spontaneous conception. We performed a combined vaginal-laparoscopic approach that consisted of vaginal infiltration resection, adhesiolysis, rectal shaving, ureterolysis, and restoration of the permeability of the fallopian tubes. Seven months after surgery the patient spontaneously conceived and is doing well
