Abstract

Abdominal wall endometriosis (AWE) is a rare form of endometriosis that often results in substantial pain and debility. The current treatment algorithm for AWE is not well established. The purpose of this review is to describe the Mayo Clinic experience with thermal ablation of symptomatic AWE as well as to review current imaging and interventional literature regarding the diagnosis and treatment of AWE.
