STUDY QUESTION What classification system is more suitable for the accurate, clear, simple and related to the clinical management categorization of female genital anomalies? SUMMARY ANSWER The new ESHRE/ESGE classification system of female genital anomalies is presented. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY Congenital malformations of the female genital tract are(More)
A new technique called transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy is described for the exploration of the tubo-ovarian structures in infertile patients without obvious pelvic pathology. It aims to be an acceptable alternative to diagnostic laparoscopy, a standard but not innocuous procedure which infrequently reveals pathology in the asymptomatic patient. Transvaginal(More)
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(More)
1 cm) and may lead to a thin absolute myometrium that could cause future pregnancy complications. It is worth considering whether the new classification should implement the length of the internal fundal indentation in relation to the length of the non-partitioned region of the uterus as a relative criterion for the diagnosis of uterine septum. We believe(More)
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,(More)
Quality control, training and education in gynaecological surgery are challenged and urgent measures are emerging. The implementation of a structured and validated program for training and quality control seems the most urgent measurement to be taken. The European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery has made a first attempt to do so. Through a practical and(More)
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,(More)
In laparoscopy, specimens have to be removed from the abdominal cavity. If the trocar opening or the vaginal outlet is insufficient to pass the specimen, the specimen needs to be reduced. The power morcellator is an instrument with a fast rotating cylindrical knife which aims to divide the tissue into smaller pieces or fragments. The Food and Drug(More)
A more objective, accurate and non-invasive estimation of uterine morphology is nowadays feasible based on the use of modern imaging techniques. The validity of the current classification systems in effective categorization of the female genital malformations has been already challenged. A new clinical approach for the classification of uterine anomalies is(More)
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(More)
