This video demonstrates the technique of a total laparoscopic hysterectomy with unilateral adnexectomy and the excision of a vesical endometriotic nodule. This patient is a 46-year-old lady with a previous surgical history of one laparotomy for a hemoperitoneum (endometriotic ovarian cyst rupture) and 6 laparoscopies because of endometriosis, the last one 3 years ago with a segmental sigmoid resection. After this last surgery, the patient starts to complain of dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain and dysuria. She has never had any urinary infection. Because of urinary stress incontinence, she had botulinic toxin injection and underwent a cystoscopy, which revealed a bladder nodule.
