Abstract: Objective: To present a technique for immediate umbilical reconstruction in women undergoing resection of umbilical endometriosis. Methods: Umbilical reconstruction using 2 semicircular defatted skin flaps was performed in 7 patients surgically treated for umbilical endometriosis from October 2000 to June 2004. the patients were followed up for at least 6 months. Results: Anatomical aspect, depression, and abdominal watt scar were considered satisfactory, although hypertrophic umbilical scars developed in 2 patients. Conclusion: This technique using 2 semicircular defatted flaps is efficient in creating a new umbilicus with a natural appearance while leaving a minimal scar. Moreover, it allows for laparoscopic inspection of the abdominal cavity. (c) 2006 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics. Published by Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
