Abstract  

Purpose of Investigation: Endometriosis is a condition in which the endometrial tissue grows outside its physiological location (outside the uterus). The main symptoms are chronic pain, dysmenorrhea, and infertility. Treatment of endometriosis is challenging, as this condition may reoccur. Materials and Methods: The authors present their first initial findings of treating endometriosis with the neutral argon plasma device. This study was conducted in the Center of Woman’s and Child’s Health, Zabrze Poland. During this period, 34 patients with diagnosed endometriosis were surgically treated with the use of neutral argon plasma. Results: Mean time of the operation was 86 (range, 30 to 250) minutes. Mean time of the hospitalization was five (range, 3 to 22) days. Re-operation was not needed in any case. Discussion: The present findings are consistent with available literature, that plasma argon is an effective and safe method of surgical treatment of endometriosis. Conclusion: Plasma argon may be hope for women suffering from chronic pain, infertility or reoccurring endometriotic lesions.
