An Innovative Treatment of Endometriosis With the Use of Plasma Technology – Case Report

Abstract: Endometriosis is a condition, in which the endometrial cells grow outside the uterus. It is a cause of chronic pain, which may disturb a woman’s well-being. In addition, women suffering from endometriosis often remain infertile. The treatment is problematic and the disease has a tendency to recur. Case Report. The patient was a 41 – year old woman with diagnosed endometriosis in the scar after caesarean section. The implant caused boring and burning pain (10/10 points in the Visual Analogue Scale for pain). The endometriosis was surgically treated with the use of Plasma Technology. The time of hospitalization was 4 days. During the period of a 6 month observation, the patient did not have any pain complaints and re-surgery was not necessary. Conclusion. The use of innovative argon plasma method enabled to dissect the entire implant of endometriosis with no intraoperative or postoperative complications. The surrounding tissues were undamaged. After 5 years of suffering the patient remained pain-free and her mental condition ameliorated.
