    I would get a clarification from the doctor. He could mean an Allen Masters window which is a pocket or fold in the peritoneum where endometrial cells tend to get trapped. I've never heard of them being "closed" though. A dx of endometriosis might point to this solution. He might mean Masters-Allen Syndrome which is a lcaeration of the broad ligament but I've never heard of these being called "windows." A dx of broad ligament laceration syndrome might mean this is the way to go. Best bet is to check with the doc.
