Abstract

Introduction and hypothesis

The objective was to assess the association between lower urinary tract disease (LUTD) and the presence of endometriosis at different anatomical sites.

Methods

Our prospective cross-sectional observational study evaluated 138 women with deep infiltrating endometriosis who had undergone preoperative evaluation of urodynamics and detailed assessment of lower urinary tract symptoms between August 2013 and May 2016. After laparoscopy, the anatomical sites of histologically confirmed endometriosis lesions were mapped.

Results

The presence of endometriosis in the bladder demonstrated significant negative angular coefficients for bladder compliance (mL/cmH2O) (P = 0.007; B = −54.65; 95%CI: −93.76 to −15.51) and for maximum cystometric capacity (mL; P = 0.001; B = −39.79; 95%CI: −62.51 to −17.06), whereas endometriosis in the parametrium showed significant positive coefficients for opening pressure (cmH2O) (P = 0.016; B = 5.89; 95%CI: 1.10–10.69) and post-void residual (mL) (P = 0.015; B = 31.34; 95%CI: 6.14–56.55). The presence of endometriosis in the bladder was a statistically significant independent predictor of low bladder compliance (P < 0.001; OR = 30.10; 95%CI: 9.48–95.55), whereas endometriosis in the parametrium was a statistically significant independent predictor of both abnormal residual urine (P = 0.019; OR = 5.21; 95%CI: 1.32–20.64) and bladder outlet obstruction (P = 0.011; OR = 7.91; 95%CI: 1.61–38.86). Correspondence analysis suggested two possible independent ways through which endometriosis acts on the genesis of urinary dysfunctions.

Conclusions

Our findings strongly suggest that endometriosis involving the bladder might disturb storage function, whereas endometriosis in the parametrium disturbs the voiding phase.
