Innovations in minimally invasive surgery and education are highlights of 40th AAGL Global Congress
Date:10/18/2011

Cypress, CA, October 18, 2011 Technology has radically changed the way surgeons practice medicine, and nowhere is this more evident than in the field of gynecologic endoscopy. AAGL, the oldest professional organization devoted to teaching minimally invasive treatment for women's health problems, will showcase a number of innovative surgical approaches and teaching tools among the hundreds of postgraduate courses and practice labs offered at its annual Global Congress, November 6-11, 2011 at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, FL.

According to Keith Isaacson, MD, Scientific Program Chair for the Congress, "Our mission in planning this meeting has been not only to include the basic educational material that has proven to be valuable over the past 40 years, but also to introduce novel, exciting and entertaining programs. We have put together a broad scope of programs that address the interests of minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons of all levels of experience and skill."

Among the highlights of the 40th Global Congress are:

  • Office-Based Uterine Cavity Evaluation (Live Surgery) - Wednesday, November 9, 12:05 PM. The two most commonly used office based tools for uterine cavity assessment, saline infused sonography and office hysteroscopy, will be compared in Surgical Tutorial #6 using an awake patient suffering from abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB). AUB is responsible for more than 30% of gynecological visits to a physician's office. Since its etiology is highly variable, all patients benefit from the most accurate uterine cavity assessment possible. Advances in endoscopic tools not only enable office-based "see and treat" procedures but also eliminate the need for patient sedation. The course will teach clinicians how to identify patient candidates and conditions for which office hysteroscopy and saline sonography are likely to provide the most benefit.

  • Simulation Wars - Wednesday, November 9, 8:00 AM
