Endometriosis concepts and theories (PDF) (2020) has more than 230 theories and concepts and 320 references since 1855 BC.

The pathogenesis of endometriosis: Molecular and cell biology insights (2019) covers the multiple inherited, acquired, genetic, epigenetic, reactive, inflammatory, immunologic, immunohistochemical, histological, and biological aspects of endometriosis as a multifactorial process resulting in a heterogeneous disease.

The genetic-epigenetic theory (PDF) (2018) is based on the transition from Müllerian (endometrial) or non-Müllerian precursors to endometriotic cells. It is not dependent on the cell or origin or the method of dissemination.

Clinical and research aspects of endometriosis, (2005) presented at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in 2005 is an update of the NIH 2000 presentation “Research Aspects of Endometriosis Surgery.” This presentation discussed several aspects including the “Pimple Model.”

Retrocervical, rectovaginal pouch, and rectovaginal septum endometriosis (2001) is a summary of past observations of deep infiltrating endometriosis. This article clarifies that rectovaginal endometriosis in in the rectovaginal (RV) pouch of Douglas (cul-de-sac) above the RV septum. This was reported as early as 1917.

Laparoscopic and vaginal colpotomy for the excision of infiltrating cul-de-sac endometriosis (1988) is a report of the ongoing development of excisional techniques first published by Professor Kurt Semm in 1980. This reports the transition from Professor Semm's use of laparoscopy to observe vaginal excision of retrocervical endometriosis (1984) to the use of partial and then total laparoscopic excision. Bowel and suturing techniques were subsequently reported in the AAGL Manual of Endoscopy (1990) and AAGL Color Atlas of Endoscopy (1993).
