INTRODUCTION: Recto-vaginal endometriosis surgical management needing partial colpectomy is a surgically challenging condition and has been associated with a notable risk of major postoperative complications. In the present study we sought to compare feasibility and safety of total laparoscopic (TL) and vaginal-assisted (VA) routes in women affected by symptomatic recto-vaginal endometriosis with vaginal mucosa infiltration scheduled for minimally invasive surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Multi-centric, retrospective cohort study on medical records of consecutive reproductive age women submitted to complete macroscopic eradication of symptomatic recto-vaginal endometriosis with vaginal mucosa infiltration between March 2013 and November 2017. The two groups were compared in terms of preoperative data and surgical outcomes. RESULTS: 84 women were included in the study (TL=57 and VA=27). The two groups were comparable in terms of preoperative, surgical and postoperative data. The major postoperative complications rate was 5.3% (three out of 57) in TL group and 7.4% (two out of 27) in VA group, without a significant difference. In the TL group we reported one case of bowel anastomosis dehiscence and two cases of pelvic abscess; in the VA group, one case of small bowel perforation after extensive adhesiolysis treated with ileal resection and one case of rectal sub-occlusion after segmental resection and mechanical anastomosis were noticed. CONCLUSIONS: In women affected by recto-vaginal endometriosis with vaginal mucosal infiltration, perioperative outcomes seem not to be influenced by the surgical route adopted.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Recto-vaginal endometriosis surgical management needing partial colpectomy is a surgically challenging condition and has been associated with a notable risk of major postoperative complications. In the present study we sought to compare feasibility and safety of total laparoscopic (TL) and vaginal-assisted (VA) routes in women affected by symptomatic recto-vaginal endometriosis with vaginal mucosa infiltration scheduled for minimally invasive surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Multi-centric, retrospective cohort study on medical records of consecutive reproductive age women submitted to complete macroscopic eradication of symptomatic recto-vaginal endometriosis with vaginal mucosa infiltration between March 2013 and November 2017. The two groups were compared in terms of preoperative data and surgical outcomes. RESULTS: 84 women were included in the study (TL=57 and VA=27). The two groups were comparable in terms of preoperative, surgical and postoperative data. The major postoperative complications rate was 5.3% (three out of 57) in TL group and 7.4% (two out of 27) in VA group, without a significant difference. In the TL group we reported one case of bowel anastomosis dehiscence and two cases of pelvic abscess; in the VA group, one case of small bowel perforation after extensive adhesiolysis treated with ileal resection and one case of rectal sub-occlusion after segmental resection and mechanical anastomosis were noticed. CONCLUSIONS: In women affected by recto-vaginal endometriosis with vaginal mucosal infiltration, perioperative outcomes seem not to be influenced by the surgical route adopted.
