Ureteral endometriosis is characterized by the development of deep infiltrating islets of endometrial tissue affecting the ureter, the optimal management in such cases being still poorly defined. Once the techniques of laparoscopic surgery improved, this minimally invasive approach has been proposed with encouraging results in treating such cases. When it comes to the types of surgical procedure which are needed in such cases, they are chosen accordingly to the degree, extent and localization of the endometrial tissue. This is a literature review of the largest studies which were conducted on the theme of the laparoscopic management of ureteral endometriosis; the main analyzed parameters refer to the efficacy and safety of the procedure.
Keywords: ureteral endometriosis, resection, laparoscopy.
