Endometriosis: Current management and future trends

Edited by Juan Garcia-Velasco and Botros RizK

The editors, Juan Garcia-Velasco and Botros Rizk, have successfully assembled an exceptional collection of papers from eminent key opinion leaders in endometriosis.

Endometriosis: Current Management and Future Trends is a successful assembly of a veritable who’s who of endometriosis publications.

The book is divided into eight sections that cover over 37 papers in:

  • epidemiology
  • pathogenesis
  • diagnosis
  • medical and surgical therapies, and
  • future trends in the management of endometriosis.

The chapters on new and novel medical therapies and future trends are important and interesting. These chapters alone make this an essential purchase for any contemporary academic collection of review papers on endometriosis, that accurately reflect our level of knowledge of this enigmatic disease towards the end of the first decade of the third millenium.

Unfortunately each chapter in this book furnishes its own definition of endometriosis and quotes a new prevalence. Admittedly, this is only annoying if the reader attempts to engage this monograph as a cohesive entity, rather than a collection of individual papers.

A stark reminder that consensus on definition of endometriosis and its estimated prevalence must be established!
