Endometriosis: conference and information stands

Thursday March 7, the gynecology and reproductive medicine in association with EndoReNo and EndoFrance , is organizing an information day and a general public conference on the theme “Endometriosis: the keys to understanding”

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a common and complex gynecological condition. It is due to the location of the endometrium outside the uterine cavity. This situation is very often responsible for severe pelvic pain, especially during the period of menstruation, painful sexual intercourse and is also often associated with digestive or urinary disorders and subfertility. It is estimated that 5 to 10% of women of childbearing age and nearly 40% of infertile women have it.

Management of endometriosis at CHU Caen Normandie

Caen Normandy University Hospital is a regional referral center for endometriosis. It has several missions, including:

  • Train practitioners or future practitioners in the care of patients with endometriosis;
  • Coordinate and participate in research work on endometriosis;
  • Engage in a dynamic of regional coordination through the EndoReNo association with establishments taking charge of endometriosis.

The files of patients suffering from complex endometriosis or requiring care by several teams are discussed within Multidisciplinary Consultation Meetings ( RCP ). These RCPs bring together gynecologists, radiologists, fertility doctors, digestive surgeons, urological surgeons, thoracic surgeons, pain doctors, etc. They are organized every month within the Caen Normandy University Hospital. There is also a RCP , bringing together practitioners from the public and private sectors of the former Lower and Upper Normandy regions, to discuss the most complex cases.

Caen Normandy University Hospital cares for 400 patients per year, including around 200 complex cases in multidisciplinary collaboration.
