  1. Data are mean ± standard deviation (SD)
  2. AM adenomyosis, EM endometriosis
  3. aThe degree of baseline pain was evaluated by the pre-surgical visual analogue scale (VAS) score (0–10 indicates no pain to severe pain)
  4. bBaseline menstrual blood loss was assessed using the pre-surgical Mansfield-Voda-Jorgensen (MVJ) score, ranging from 1 (spotting) to 6 (gushing)
  5. cSignificant difference compared with the AM and EM groups (both p < 0.001)
