  • Bladder endometriosis is due by the infiltration of the bladder wall through the peritoneum and the connective tissue of the vesico- uterine space. For this reason is not correct to treat this pathology only with a resection via cystoscopy. Sometimes is concurrently present an adenomyosis of the anterior wall of the uterus.

    The steps for a correct surgery of this pathology are:

    • Dissection of the vesico-uterine space.
    • Opening the bladder just above the endometriotic nodule.
    • Complete resection of the nodule.
    • Suturing the bladder in two layers with running sutures.
    • Remove all the endometriotic and adenomyotic tissue on the anterior wall of the uterus.
