Abstract

Pelvic pain associated with endometriosis is a common clinical problem. In approximately 20% of cases endometriosis-related pelvic pain is either minimally or not responsive to medical treatment; thus surgical treatment seems to be a valid option. The aim of this review is to describe presacral neurectomy surgical techniques, data regarding safety and efficacy of this procedure, its indications, and future research on its applications in clinical practice.
