Laparoscopic Endometriosis Surgery

Laparoscopic endometriosis surgery is a modern surgical operation, also known as closed chocolate cyst surgery. There are three important layers that make up the uterus. These are the perimetrium, the outermost membranous layer, the myometrium, the muscle layer in the middle, and the endometrium, which is the innermost layer. There is an important feature that distinguishes the endometrium layer from other uterine layers. The endometrium layer, unlike other uterine layers, can undergo changes within the scope of hormonal changes and menstrual cycle. Due to the factors we have mentioned, the endometrium thickens during the ovulation period and creates an ideal environment for possible pregnancies. If pregnancy does not occur, the thickened endometrium is destroyed, and the destroyed tissues are expelled from the body as menstruation with some blood. In some women, the tissues that break off from the endometrium develop in an area outside the uterus instead of being completely removed from the body. This is a serious disease known as endometriosis that can lead to chocolate cysts. Laparoscopic endometriosis surgery is an advanced surgical operation used to treat this ailment.
