Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of cells (endometrial cells) similar to those that form the inside of the uterus, but in a location outside of the uterus. Endometriosis is most commonly found on other organs of the pelvis. These lesions are most commonly found on the ovaries, the Fallopian tubes, the surface of the uterus, the bowel, and on the membrane lining of the pelvic cavity (i.e. the peritoneum). We corroborate TNF-a, IL-6 and IL-8 markers with intraoperative laparoscopic on 39 patients diagnosed with endometriosis in January 2016 - December 2017, aged 20-45 years. There has been a preoperative evaluation in the patients from this that included the anamnesis, clinical examination and laboratory tests. Anamnesis recorded demographic details, patient’s personal, physiological and pathological medical history. Evaluation of preoperative investigations consisted of general and local systems examination, a gynecological examination in order to identify the specific signs of endometriosis. Making matters worse is that endometriosis exhibits significant immunological dysfunction, including the over-expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines like interleukin-1 (IL-1), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and tumor necrosis factor (TNF), all of which contribute to a chronic up-regulation of painful, tissue-damaging inflammatory processes. Because the cause of endometriosis is poorly understood, there are no known ways to prevent its development.
