Rectovaginal Endometriosis Dissection with EEA Stapled Discoid Resection of Rectal Endometriosis
This video demonstrates technique for dissection of rectovaginal endometriosis, including a description of what I call the "Reverse Horseshoe" technique for separating the rectum and sigmoid from adherent cervix/vagina in cases of high grade bowel endometriosis. We also demonstrate the use of an EEA stapler to do an anterior disc resection of the rectal / sigmoid wall. This video is created with the intention of demonstrating these techniques to other surgeons, but will also be of of interest to women with high grade endometriosis who seek to better understand the surgical techniques that are involved in removing such disease. -------- Dr Fogelson is a Physician in practice at Northwest Endometriosis and Pelvic Surgery in Portland, OR.

Performed by Dr. Nicholas Fogelson of Northwest Endometriosis and Pelvic Surgery in Portland, OR. Call 503-715-1377 for clinical consultation. To be presented at AAGL annual meeting, Vancouver, BC, 2019.

Is Lupron Chemotherapy?
Dr. Fogelson addresses a common misconception about Lupron. Lupron is a drug that some doctors use to treat endometriosis symptoms, and it has a lot of side effects. Some of these side effects can be severe, and some women seem to have long term issues after only a few months on the drug. Lupron is also a drug that is used in some estrogen sensitive cancers as an anti-neoplastic agent. But Lupron is _NOT_ chemotherapy, in the sense that it is not a cytotoxic chemotherapy agent.
