Characterization of Lesions Visualized by Laparoscope in Baboons Experimentally Induced with Endometriosis. Laparoscopic evaluation of the peritoneal cavity of baboons a) one month following induction of disease revealed similar levels of red, blue, chocolate, white, and mixed lesions. The peritoneal cavity contained a significantly higher number of red lesions b) three months following induction of endometriosis; however, c) 6 months after inoculation with menstrual endometrium significantly higher numbers of blue lesions were present in the peritoneal cavity of baboons with induced disease. Similar numbers of each lesions type were visible by laparoscopy d) 15 months after induction of endometriosis. Columns represent the mean number of red, blue, chocolate, white, and mixed lesions visualized by laparoscope a) 1 month (n = 6), b) 3 months (n = 21), c) 6 months (n = 10), and d) 15 months (n = 5) after induction of disease. Error bars represent the standard error of the mean. (*, p < 0.05, Kruskal-Wallis ANOVA, with Dunn's Correction for multiple testing.)
