Non-Endometrioid Peritoneal Lesions in Pelvic Pain
and Infertility Patients: A Case Series

University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee
Conclusion: In the laparoscopic evaluation of pelvic pain and infertility, biopsy of suspicious peritoneal lesions yielded only benign, nonspecific pathology in this series. This study suggests the need for adequate laparoscopic criteria for the identification of benign lesions such as adhesions, endosalpingiosis, psammoma bodies, foreign body, and other more common pathology. Formulation of such criteria might help to clarify the clinical significance of such lesions and may reduce the resources needed for histologic evaluation.

Adept® (4% icodextrin) for Adhesion Prophylaxis
Dan C Martin, M.D
Conclusions: The use of Adept® (4% icodextrin) or lactated Ringer’s solution at a volume of 1,000 cc decreases adhesions compared with the previous literature on volumes on up to 300 cc.. Adept is a peritoneal dialysis solution modified for use at surgery. Significantly more Adept® patients achieved clinical success than lactated Ringer’s solution patients in a study on the web and to be published in November.
