Objective: To evaluate the result of laparoscopic endometrioma excision in fertility outcome of advanced endometriosis patients.

Study Design: The study was designated as historical cohort, in a private referral center of advance laparoscopy. 111 infertile patients, diagnosed as endometriosis, were divided in two groups: DIE (deep infiltrative endometriosis) and endometrioma (case group), and patients with only DIE (without endometrioma ((control group). All patients underwent global laparoscopic resection of DIE lesion (both groups) and laparoscopic excisional cystectomy of endometrioma (case groups). Patients were followed for fertility outcomes and data were analyzed by Kaplan-Meier test and COX regression using SPSS software.

Results: After adjusting covariates, the Kaplan-Meier analysis of cumulative pregnancy rates (CPR) did not show any statistical significance between cases (35.6%) and controls (39.5%) (Log-rank P-value=0.959). The COX regression analysis of covariates showed there is no significant relationship between cystectomy and fertility outcome. It showed statistical significance effect of age (hazard ratio [HR]=0.772), years of infertility (HR=0.224), and previous endometrioma surgery (HR=0.180), on fertility chance.

Conclusion: In advanced endometriosis with DIE and infertility, fine excision and stripping of the endometrioma along with radical resection of DIE improves fecundity without any significant adverse effect in comparison with patients with intact ovaries.

Vitamin D serum levels in allergic rhinitis: any difference from normal population?

Asia Pac Allergy 2012 Jan 18;2(1):45-8. Epub 2012 Jan 18.

Department of Asthma, Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Hazrat Rasoul Akram Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran 1445613131, Iran.

Background: Recently it has been suggested that, the worldwide increase in allergic diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis and food allergy is associated with low vitamin D intake.

Objective: This study measured the vitamin D levels in patients with allergic rhinitis and compared the results with the general population.

Methods: Vitamin D levels were assessed in 50 patients with allergic rhinitis diagnosed clinically by Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma 2008 criteria and the result of skin prick test for aeroallergens. There was no control group, and the study results were compared with the results of another study evaluating vitamin D status in the 5,329 people of normal population of Iran.

Results: The prevalence of severe vitamin D deficiency was significantly higher in patients with allergic rhinitis than the normal population, 30% and 5.1% respectively (p = 0.03). Also women with allergic rhinitis had lower vitamin D levels.

Conclusion: Measuring vitamin D serum levels could be helpful in the routine assessment of patients with allergic rhinitis in Iran.
