Hi-Tech Advances the Practice of Minimally Invasive Gynecology at AAGL Global Congress
Date:11/6/2008

CYPRESS, Calif., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- A steady march toward using ever-more "patient-friendly" procedures in gynecological care was reflected in the proceedings of the 37th Global Congress of Minimally Invasive Gynecology, hosted by the AAGL, the international professional society for specialists in minimally invasive gynecological techniques.

A groundbreaking general session, "Film and Medicine: Entertainment and Technology from Yesterday to the Future," traced the partnership of film and medicine in surgical treatment of patients. Whereas film and video have been used as teaching tools for decades, the application of new 4K digital technologies will enhance visualization beyond the limits of the human eye.

Other new uses of film and video showcased at the Congress included live, interactive telesurgery sessions wherein two surgeries were performed side by side using different techniques to treat the same condition.

The first telesurgery session compared different ways of repairing vaginal vault prolapse, a condition where the top of the vagina protrudes into the lower portion of the vagina in women who have had hysterectomies. The second telesurgery session compared different approaches for performing hysterectomies. Participants were able to provide ongoing feedback as the procedures progressed. Additionally,
