Long-Term Management Of Endometriosis
For women, chronic pelvic pain resulting from endometriosis represents a lifelong challenge to obtain and maintain pain relief. Long-term management of endometriosis: A case study and review of the literature, a supplement to OBG Management, presents practical strategies that clinicians can use to help them achieve best outcomes for these patients.
The author, Barbara S. Levy, MD, presents a case history of a young woman with severe symptoms of long duration. This case illustrates how the healthcare provider and patient can work together to develop an effective treatment plan and, over time, evaluate the need for modifying or changing the treatment protocol, which may include such agents as oral contraceptives, gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists, and surgery.
