Face and content validity of the virtual reality simulator ‘ScanTrainer®’

Background Ultrasonography is a first-line imaging in the investigation of women’s irregular bleeding and other gynaecological pathologies, e.g. ovarian cysts and early pregnancy problems. However, teaching ultrasound, especially transvaginal scanning, remains a challenge for health professionals. New technology such as simulation may potentially facilitate and expedite the process ...

Retention of laparoscopic psychomotor skills after a structured training program depends on the quality of the training and on the complexity of the task

This follow-up RCT was conducted to evaluate laparoscopic psychomotor skills retention after finishing a structured training program. In a first study, 80 gynecologists were randomly allocated to four groups to follow different training programs for hand-eye coordination (task 1) with the dominant hand (task 1-a) and the non-dominant hand (task 1-b) and laparoscopic intra-corporeal ...

Gynaecological endoscopic surgical education and assessment. A diploma programme in gynaecological endoscopic surgery

In recent years, training and education in endoscopic surgery has been critically reviewed. Clinicians, both surgeons as gynaecologist who perform endoscopic surgery without proper training of the specific psychomotor skills, are at higher risk to increased patient morbidity and mortality. Although the apprentice-tutor model has long been a successful approach for training of ...

Outcome of conservative surgical treatment of deep infiltrating endometriosis

Deep infiltrating endometriosis, which is frequently associated with pain, is diagnosed at clinical examination and with indirect imaging techniques like ultrasound and MRI. The aim of this study was to evaluate complications and recurrence rate after laparoscopic resection of deep infiltrating endometriosis by shaving technique. Between January 2004 and December 2010, 74 ...

The Thessaloniki ESHRE/ESGE consensus on diagnosis of female genital anomalies

What is the recommended diagnostic work-up of female genital anomalies according to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE)/European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE) system? The ESHRE/ESGE consensus for the diagnosis of female genital anomalies is presented. Accurate diagnosis of congenital anomalies still remains a clinical challenge due to the ...

A multi-centre randomised controlled study of pre-IVF outpatient hysteroscopy in women with recurrent IVF implantation failure: Trial of Outpatient Hysteroscopy - [TROPHY] in IVF

Background The success rate of IVF treatment is low. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis found that the outcome of IVF treatment could be improved in patients who have experienced recurrent implantation failure if an outpatient hysteroscopy (OH) is performed before starting the new treatment cycle. However, the trials were of variable quality, leading to a call for a large ...

Role of transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy in the investigation of female infertility: a review of 1,000 procedures

Transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy is a culdoscopic approach for the inspection of the posterior pelvis, but, in contrast to culdoscopy, uses an aqueous solution for the distension of the pelvic cavity and small diameter optics. The technique is used for diagnostic purposes in patients with infertility and is performed under local anesthesia or conscious sedation in an ambulatory ...

Hydrosalpinx and ART: Hydrosalpinx – functional surgery or salpingectomy?

The debate on the effect of the hydrosalpinx on medically-assisted reproduction has demonstrated the importance of understanding the complex pathophysiology of the hydrosalpinx in outlining the principles of its clinical management, whether it is by functional surgery or IVF, preceded or not by salpingectomy. New endoscopic techniques are available to accurately assess, both in the ...

Prospective multicentre randomized controlled trial to evaluate factors influencing the success rate of office diagnostic hysteroscopy

BACKGROUND: Diagnostic hysteroscopy is not widely performed in the office setting, one of the reasons being the discomfort produced by the procedure. This randomized controlled trial was performed to evaluate the effects of instrument diameter, patient parity and surgeon experience on the pain suffered and success rate of the procedure. METHODS: Patients were randomly assigned to ...

Investigation of the infertile couple: A one-stop outpatient endoscopy-based approach

Transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy (THL) is a new culdoscopic technique for exploration of the pelvic cavity that takes advantage of micro-endoscopic technology and uses aquaflotation for inspection of the tubo-ovarian structures. In infertility patients, THL is systematically combined with mini-hysteroscopy, chromopertubation, fimbrioscopy and, when indicated, salpingoscopy. ...

High endometrial aromatase P450 mRNA expression is associated with poor IVF outcome

BACKGROUND: The success of IVF treatment is dependent upon embryo quality and coordinated growth and differentiation of the endometrium. Aromatase P450 expression in the human endometrium is thought to be restricted to women with proliferative reproductive tract disorders such as endometriosis, leiomyomas and adenomyosis. METHODS: To determine whether endometrial aromatase P450 ...
