Endometriosis is a chronic condition in which tissue resembling the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus, causing pain, irregular bleeding and even infertility. The cause of endometriosis is not fully understood.
An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that forms on or inside an ovary. Ovarian cysts are common and usually do not cause symptoms, but some may cause pain or discomfort, irregular periods and bloating. Ovarian cysts can be divided into functional cysts (which occur as a normal part of the menstrual cycle) and pathologic cysts (which are abnormal and can be caused by various conditions). Most functional cysts go away on their own, but some pathologic cysts may require medical intervention.
Gynecologic adhesions are bands of scar tissue that form between surfaces in the pelvis and can cause pain and infertility. Adhesions can form after pelvic surgery, endometriosis, or pelvic inflammatory disease and can cause organs and tissues to stick together, leading to pain, infertility, and other complications. Adhesions can be diagnosed with imaging techniques and treated with medication or surgery, depending on the severity and location of the adhesions.
Conception, design and realization of a 3D animation for the treatment of endometriosis, ovarian cyst and adhesions during laparoscopic surgery. The animation illustrates the access to the abdominal cavity by trocars and shows the findings.
In the first step, the ovarian cyst is opened by laser and removed by “stripping”. The resulting bleeding is stopped with a laser. Now the endometriosis lesions are treated by laser and finally the adhesions are cut.
In a final step, the achieved treatment results of the operation are shown once again.
