Endometriosis can affect 10–15% of the women in their reproductive age and it is characterized by the presence of the functional endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. Up to 10% of the cases with urinary system endometriosis may involve the ureter. Left distal ureter is the most common site of involvement. The differentiation between intrinsic and extrinsic endometriosis is very substantial for the selection and application of definitive treatment. Medical and surgical treatment alternatives are available for endometriosis management and histopathologic examination is required for definitive diagnosis

Basics of endoscopy for Gynecology Treatment
Endoscopy is a minimally invasive medical procedure used in gynecology for diagnostic and treatment purposes. It involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube with a camera (hysteroscope or laparoscope) into the vaginal or abdominal cavity to visualize and examine the reproductive organs, such as the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Gynecological endoscopy allows for the diagnosis of conditions like fibroids, polyps, and endometriosis, as well as the performance of surgical procedures like hysterectomy, myomectomy, and tubal ligation with smaller incisions and quicker recovery times compared to traditional open surgery, making it a valuable tool in women's healthcare.
