Colombian Expert Consensus Regarding Managing Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis in Colombia

  • Juan Diego Villegas-Echeverri


A meeting called the “Colombian Expert Consensus Regarding Endometriosis” was held in May 2012 within the framework of the 28th Colombian Obstetrics and Gynaecology Congress in Cartagena de Indias. Members of the Fecolsog chapter of Gynaecological Endoscopy attended this meeting; there were known specialists from regions of Colombia who are experts on the topic and international professors who were lecturing on this disease, including Dr Liliana Mereu (Italy), Dr Mauricio Abrao (Brazil), Dr Francisco Carmona (Spain) and Dr John Steege (USA). The aforementioned meeting was designed to deal with a single academic topic, “Managing deep infiltrating endometriosis in Colombia.”

Discussion during this meeting led to a consensus document endorsed by participants being produced, entitled, “Why should deep infiltrating endometriosis be considered a different disease to peritoneal endometriosis?” This document tried to establish a position on such specific topic and inform specialists about this especially challenging and complex pathology afflicting many patients in practice.
