ENDOMETRIOSIS
• Endometriosis is a challenging disease
  observed in 20-40% subfertile women
• Alteration of immunologic milieu in the
  peritoneal cavity creates an “hostile
  enviornment” for gamete interaction and early
  embryo development.
• Treatments available are:
  medical,surgical,expectant and COH with ART
ENDOMETRIOSIS


Presence of tissue outside the uterus
which is similar to endometrium.
invasive but non neoplastic growth
pattern.
WHERE ALL CAN ECTOPIC
      ENDOMETRIUM BE ?
• COULD BE PRESENT :
• REPRODUCTIVE TRACT
• URINARY TRACT
• GIT
• SURGICAL SCAR/UMBILICUS
• LUNG
• RARELY PERICARDIUM,PLEURA,CNS,NOSE,EYE
• Ectopic endometrium responds to changes in
  ovarian hormones
• Cyclical bleeding within & from deposits leads to
  inflammation ,then fibrosis, peritoneal damage &
  adhesions
“ He who knows Endometriosis,
  knows Gynecology ”
                                        Sir William Osler


Endometriosis is a Benign ,
Estrogen dependant
Progressive Gynecological
Disease in women of
Reproductive Age ,
which is extremely common

Yet however , there is much that is still not
understood and the condition still arouses
Interest and Controversies
                                        Robert W. Shaw

  • 2. ENDOMETRIOSIS AND ASSISTED REPRODUCTION OUR EXPERIENCE jaideep malhotra narendra malhotra neharika malhotra www.malhotrahospitals.com
  • 3. ENDOMETRIOSIS • Endometriosis is a challenging disease observed in 20-40% subfertile women • Alteration of immunologic milieu in the peritoneal cavity creates an “hostile enviornment” for gamete interaction and early embryo development. • Treatments available are: medical,surgical,expectant and COH with ART
  • 4. ENDOMETRIOSIS Presence of tissue outside the uterus which is similar to endometrium. invasive but non neoplastic growth pattern.
  • 5. WHERE ALL CAN ECTOPIC ENDOMETRIUM BE ? • COULD BE PRESENT : • REPRODUCTIVE TRACT • URINARY TRACT • GIT • SURGICAL SCAR/UMBILICUS • LUNG • RARELY PERICARDIUM,PLEURA,CNS,NOSE,EYE • Ectopic endometrium responds to changes in ovarian hormones • Cyclical bleeding within & from deposits leads to inflammation ,then fibrosis, peritoneal damage & adhesions
  • 6. “ He who knows Endometriosis, knows Gynecology ” Sir William Osler Endometriosis is a Benign , Estrogen dependant Progressive Gynecological Disease in women of Reproductive Age , which is extremely common Yet however , there is much that is still not understood and the condition still arouses Interest and Controversies Robert W. Shaw
  • 7. DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT • Laparoscopy is the gold standard, as far as diagnosis and therapy.
  • 8. In our practice ,on diagnostic laparoscopy, even small implants seen are fulgurated, and case is managed aggressively.
  • 9. Generally we try to do laparoscopy for endometriomas of more than 3cm in size ,with H/O infertility, however ,small endometriomas with short period of infertility, medical management with ovarian stimulation and IUI is tried for 3-4 cycles ,before taking the patient up for laparoscopy
  • 10. For endometriotic cysts ,most preferred is cystectomy, but whenever this is not possible then removal of the cyst lining as much as possible is done, along with fulguration of the rest .
  • 11. Larger endometriomas, with long standing infertility, laparoscopic cystectomy is the first choice and immediately the patient is put on GnRH analogues and taken up for IVF. This has proved to be very successful .
  • 12. ASSISTED REPRODUCTION • Definitely referred for ART little earlier • IUI improves fertility in minimal –mild endometriosis • IUI with ovarian stimulation is more effective • IVF appropriate where IUI fails or tubal function compromised.
  • 13. Indications for IVF - ICSI  Tubal Infertility 30 %  Male Infertility 20 %  Endometriosis 10 %  PCOS 5 %  Unexplained Infertility 15 %  3rd Party Reproduction 20 % Egg Donation Sperm Donation Embryo Donation Surrogacy
  • 14. Endometriosis Fertility Index The New Validated Endometriosis Staging System
  • 15. Endometriosis Fertility Index The New Validated Endometriosis Staging System • Objective: To develop a clinical tool that predicts pregnancy rates (PRs) in patients with surgically documented endometriosis who attempt non-IVF conception • Design: Prospective data collection on 579 patients and comprehensive statistical analysis to derive a new staging system— the endometriosis fertility index (EFI)—from data rather than a priori assumptions, followed by testing the EFI prospectively on 222 additional patients for correlation of predicted and actual outcomes • Setting: Private reproductive endocrinology practice • Patient(s): A total of 801 consecutively diagnosed and treated infertile patients with endometriosis.

Aggressive Treatment of ENDOMETRIOMAS is associated with CUMULATIVE PREGNANCY RATE of 60 % over 12 Months Koninck PR & Martin D ( 1994 ), Treatment of deeply infiltrating endometriosis , ( review ) Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol , 6 : 231 - 241 No RCTs or Meta - analyses are available to answer the question whether Surgical Excision of Moderate to Severe Endometriosis Enhances Pregnancy Rate. Based upon 3 studies (Adamson et al., 1993; Guzick et al., 1997; Osuga et al., 2002) there seems to be a Negative Correlation between the Stage of Endometriosis and the Spontaneous Cumulative Pregnancy Rate after Surgical Removal of Endometriosis, but statistical significance was only reached in one study ( Osuga et al., 2002 ) ESHRE Guideline Recommendation Grade B , Evidence Level 3

  • 36. Cochrane database 2006 • Three randomised controlled trials (with 165 women) were included. • The live birth rate per woman was significantly higher in women receiving the GnRH agonist compared to the control group (OR 9.19, 95% CI 1.08 to 78.22). • The clinical pregnancy rate per woman was also significantly higher (three studies: OR 4.28, 95% CI 2.00 to 9.15).
  • 37. Cochrane database 2006 • AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: The administration of GnRH agonists for a period of three to six months prior to IVF or ICSI in women with endometriosis increases the odds of clinical pregnancy by fourfold. (khurd/malhotra/ISAR/others)
  • 38. Cochrane database 2007,issue 4 • Six studies, with a total of 552 women • No statistically significant difference between the use of depot GnRHa or daily GnRHa in clinical pregnancy rates per woman (OR 0.94, 95% CI 0.65 to 1.37). • However, the use of depot GnRHa for pituitary desensitization in IVF cycles increased the number of gonadotrophins ampoules (WMD 3.30, 95% CI 1.27 to 5.34) and the duration of the ovarian stimulation (WMD 0.56, 95% CI 0.31 to 0.81), as compared with daily GnRHa.
  • 39. Cochrane database 2007,issue 4 • Long-acting GnRHa instead of a daily dose in IVF cycles increases costs, without improving pregnancy rates or other outcomes
  • 40. Stage of disease • No difference in the IVF outcome was found between patients with AFS stage I-II or AFS stage III-IV disease. • No evidence of an increased incidence of miscarriage. Human Reproduction, Vol. 10, No. 6, pp. 1507-1511, 1995 ESHRE

  • 42. Agonist vs.Antagonist • Considering the implantation and clinical pregnancy rates, COH with both GnRH antagonist and GnRH-a protocols may be equally effective in patients with mild-to-moderate endometriosis and endometrioma who did and did not undergo ovarian surgery. Fertil Steril. 2007 Oct;88(4):832-9
  • 43. U/L vs. B/L endometrioma • A higher amount of FSH is needed to achieve an acceptable IVF outcome after unilateral endometrioma surgery.

  • 52. Stimulation protocols for endometriosis • Stimulation response for patients with endometriosis/ endometriomas, generally does not seem to be compromised, however, after the surgery, we do get smaller number of follicles, though pregnancy rates are comparable.

  • 55. Agonist vs Antagonist protocol • We prefer to do long agonist protocol, for all our endometriosis patients, however of late, we have done quite a few cycles with antagonist protocol and have got comparable results in mild to moderate endometriosis. AGONIST PROTOCOLS IN GRD 1 AND 2 DISEASE GIVES SAME RESULTS AS IN TUBAL FACTOR ANTAGONIST MAY BE USED AS A REASONABLE CHOICE FOR POOR RESPONDERS THE RESULTS OF IVF IN ADVANCED ENDOMETRIOSIS IS 36% REDUCED AS COMPARED TO OTHER INDICATIONS (IMPAIRED FERTILIZATION AND IMPLANTATION)

Barnhart et al 2002 , reported Less Fertilization in IVF in Women with Endometriosis  Improved Ovarian Stimulation and TVS Oocyte Reterival Techniques have Increased Oocyte yield which Compensates for Reduced Fertilization Rate in IVF  ICSI is always Better than IVF Endometriosis - “ ICSI for ALL ”
  • 59. Our strategy • Laparoscopy for all unexplained infertility • Any endometriotic implant visualised during laparoscopy is taken care of. • Short history of infertilty ,with endometriomas , <3cms,ovarian stimulation and IUI if required. • Endometriomas >3cms,laparoscopy, followed by, ovarian stimulation and IUI • If longstanding infertility with endometriomas,surgery followed by IVF immediately.Bigger and recurrent cysts are drained before stimulation cycle. • Recurrence is quite common, so proper couselling is required.
  • 60. Problem with refferal for ART • Infertile women with endometriosis do not systamatically undego early ART • Attitude of women towards ART • Possible benefits of second line surgery • IVF as an emotional and physical burden • Gynaecs not involved in ART are still hesitant for early refferal even with grd 3-4 disease(lack of awareness)
  • 61. ENDOMETRIOSIS SUMMARY  ENDOMETRIOSIS at ALL STAGES has a NEGATIVE IMPACT on FERTILITY Causes SUBFERTILITY  More Severe the Disease Lesser is the Fecundity  H / O PAIN, Clinical Exam, USG, Doppler, MRI & CA 125 help in Provisional Diagnosis  LAPAROSCOPY is the GOLD STANDARD to make a Correct & Confirmed Diagnosis  TREATMENT – INDIVIDUALIZED  LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY is the GOLD STANDARD for Management of ENDOMETRIOSIS 1st Line of Treatment for ALL STAGES EXCISE or DESTROY LESIONS Surgery Enhances Pregnancy Success & brings Pain Relief

  • 64. conclusion • ART-IUI/IVF/ICSI is currently an effective treatment in women with endometriosis. • There is a general consensus that IVF should be recommended in infertile women who fail to get pregnant after surgical treatment. • In grd d 3-4 disease early reference to IVF/ICSI
  • 65. CONCLUSION • Endometriosis is an example – the more treatments there are for a disease ,the more likely it is that none is ideal • Albert Yuzpe
  • 66. endometriosis remains an enigma shrouded in mystery is this chronic,enigmatic and incurable ?? Chronic ..YES,potentially curable and preventable with surgery,but the surgery must Be complete and performed by a qualified gynaec surgeon with experience in Dealing with endometriosis
