Abstract: Multidisciplinary laparoscopic treatment is the standard of care for radical treatment of deep infiltrating pelvic endometriosis. If bowel resection is necessary, a muscle-split or Pfannenstiel incision is also required. The avoidance of any laparotomy could decrease surgical stress response, give a faster return to normal bowel function, decrease post-operative pain and reduce wound complications and incisional hernias. We assessed post-operative outcome after a full laparoscopic sigmoid resection for bowel endometriosis.
