In this clip, fluid within the rectouterine pouch introduced following saline-infusion sonoPODography allows for appreciation of adhesions and a peritoneal pocket (enclosed fluid due to a defect in the peritoneum). These are two classic features of superficial endometriosis.
Although not clearly depicted in this clip, deep endometriosis likely is present posterior to the uterus at the level of the internal cervical os, as demonstrated by the irregular, hypoechoic area.
The uterine fundus is being pushed cephalad by the transvaginal ultrasound probe, eliciting smooth sliding of the uterine fundus over the bowel. Some fluid is noted within the rectouterine pouch, which often suggests a non-obliterated pouch.
In this case, there is a fixed ovary posteriorly and subtle hypoechoic nodule posterior to the uterus at the level of the internal cervical os, suggesting of deep endometriosis of the torus uterinus.
Pressure is being applied to the uterus by the ultrasound operator’s non-scanning hand, eliciting smooth sliding of the posterior uterine serosa over the bowel. Some fluid is noted within the rectouterine pouch, which often suggests a non-obliterated pouch
A hypoechoic deep endometriosis nodule is noted within the hyperechoic uterosacral ligament, infiltrating the parametrium
