Excerpt

Ovaries are frequently affected by endometriotic tissue, with endometriomas occurring in nearly 40–50% of endometriosis cases. While laparoscopic cystectomy is the conventional treatment for endometriomas, newer approaches aim to reduce the risk of iatrogenic damage to ovarian tissue (risk of infertility and premature menopause). One innovative technique is sclerotherapy, which entails the injection of alcohol into the endometrioma, leading to the denaturation of the amino acid components in its pseudocapsule. …
