BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Progress in endoscopic surgery in the past few decades has led to the application of 3-dimensional (3D) procedures in operating rooms. This permits patient- and surgeon-friendly operations and also maximizes the superiority of laparoscopy over laparotomy. In this study, we compare 2-dimensional (2D) and 3D endoscopy techniques with regard to time, efficiency, optics, and handling by users with different degrees of experience at 4 difficulty levels. DESIGN: A randomized controlled trial on a pelvitrainer in objectively graded surgical steps for students and postgraduates...

BACKGROUND: Although widely adopted, the use of a uterine manipulator during laparoscopic treatment of endometrial cancer represents a debated issue, and some authors hypothesize that it potentially may cause an increased risk of relapse, particularly at specific sites. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to evaluate the risk and site of disease recurrence, overall survival, and disease-specific survival in women who had laparoscopic surgery with and without the use of a uterine manipulator...

A 52-year-old woman with abdominal pain and a feeling of incomplete evacuation visited a local clinic. Enlargement of the right ovary was detected, and the patient was referred to the gynecological department of our hospital. CT and MRI revealed a round-shaped mass, 8 cm in diameter, with cystic and solid components in the Douglas pouch. The patient underwent a laparotomy under the diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Intraoperatively, both the ovaries appeared normal and the tumor strongly adhered to the rectum and uterus...

Nerve injuries during gynecologic endoscopy are an infrequent but distressing complication. In benign gynecologic surgery, most of these injuries are associated with patient positioning, although some are related to port placement. Most are potentially preventable with attention to patient placement on the operating room bed and knowledge of the relative anatomy of the nerves. The highest risk group vulnerable to these injuries includes women who have extreme body mass index and those with longer surgical times in the Trendelenburg position...

OBJECTIVE: The primary objective of our study was to test the construct validity of the HystSim hysteroscopic simulator to determine whether simulation training can improve the acquisition of hysteroscopic skills regardless of the previous levels of experience of the participants. The secondary objective was to analyze the performance of a selected task, using specially designed scoring charts to help reduce the learning curve for both novices and experienced surgeons. DESIGN: The teaching of hysteroscopic intervention has received only scant attention, focusing mainly on the development of physical models and box simulators...

BACKGROUND: Ureteral wounds are rare with an incidence of 0.5 to 1% of pelvic surgeries. Their supports and their prognosis remain dependant of the period of support and the level of ureteral lesion. The importance of early treatment reduces morbidity and improves patient prognosis. METHODS: A retrospective study from October 2003 to June 2014 was performed in a university hospital using a systematic chart review of patients' urology, digestive surgery, vascular surgery and gynecology...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Recent reports have indicated that the time of day may impact the detection rate of abnormal cytology on gynecologic cytology samples. The aim of this study was to determine if procedure time or queue position affected the performance characteristics of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) for diagnosing solid pancreatic malignancies. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study evaluating patients with solid pancreatic lesions in whom EUS-FNA was performed...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to examine the surgical findings at repeated surgeries for endometriosis and to compare disease progression in patients after IVF to those without interval fertility treatments. METHODS: A retrospective case-control study set at the referral center for gynecologic endoscopy at Stanford University. Women who had two surgeries for treatment of symptomatic endometriosis since 1997 were searched in the database. Twenty-one women were identified who underwent IVF treatment between the two procedures (IVF group), and compared to 36 women who did not receive any fertility treatment (controls)...

The aim of this study is to determine how complications can be avoided in gynecological minimally invasive surgery in Europe. The Norwegian Gynecological Endoscopic Registry (NGER) facilitates medical research over a long duration. Can experiences from the Norwegian registry be used to develop a European registry to avoid complications? To answer this question, we used the NGER data from February 2013 until March 2015 to analyze the complications of gynecological endoscopy. The registry includes sociodemographic factors, related comorbidity, previous surgery, present procedure, and intraoperative complications...

AIMS: To discuss the assessment and management of genitourinary (GU) tract abnormalities in 21 girls with Types I-III congenital pouch colon (CPC), studied over a period of 10 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Assessment included clinical and radiological assessment, examination under anesthesia (EUA), endoscopy of the lower GU tract, and evaluation of the surgical findings, operative procedures for the GU anomalies, and the results of management. RESULTS: Initial examination of the external genitalia showed a "clover-leaf" appearance (n = 6) and a single perineal opening (n = 6)...

Endometriosis is a multifocal gynecological disorder affecting approximately 6%-10% of women during their reproductive years (Giudice and Kao in: Lancet 364:1789-1799, 2004). Presenting symptomatology often relates to the anatomical structures involved. Given the complexity of both the management and pain control of patients with complex endometriosis, the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy has issued guidelines on the establishment of a multidisciplinary team approach to these cases (http://www.bsge...

Deep gluteal syndrome (DGS) is an underdiagnosed entity characterized by pain and/or dysesthesias in the buttock area, hip or posterior thigh and/or radicular pain due to a non-discogenic sciatic nerve entrapment in the subgluteal space. Multiple pathologies have been incorporated in this all-included "piriformis syndrome," a term that has nothing to do with the presence of fibrous bands, obturator internus/gemellus syndrome, quadratus femoris/ischiofemoral pathology, hamstring conditions, gluteal disorders and orthopedic causes...

A new European telesurgical system, the Telelap Alf-x, is introduced. Its main features are individual arms, which enable free access to the patient throughout surgery, a large range of reusable surgical instruments, an open console with eye-tracking system, where the camera follows the eye and head movements of the surgeon, and the existing force feedback enables for the first time to feel the consistency of the tissues and avoid tearing of the stitches while suturing. The system combines the benefits of open surgery and endoscopy...

STUDY QUESTION: Does the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology-European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESHRE-ESGE) classification of female genital tract malformations significantly increase the frequency of septate uterus diagnosis relative to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) classification? SUMMARY ANSWER: Use of the ESHRE-ESGE classification, compared with the ASRM classification, significantly increased the frequency of septate uterus recognition...

SETTING: Gynecologic endoscopy unit. PATIENT(S): A total of 167 women referred to our institution from 2009 to 2013.

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Laparoscopic techniques for pelvic organ prolapse surgery using mesh are gaining interest. A standard approach or published guideline for the laparoscopic sacrohysteropexy (LSH) or laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC) is lacking. The purpose of this study is to assess the variation between Dutch gynecologists in executing LSH and LSC. METHODS: A questionnaire was developed to evaluate the technique of LSH and LSC. All members of the Dutch Society for Gynecological Endoscopy and Minimally Invasive Surgery and the Dutch Society for Urogynecology were invited by email to participate in a web-based survey...

Specimen retrieval bags have long been used in laparoscopic gynecologic surgery for contained removal of adnexal cysts and masses. More recently, the concerns regarding spread of malignant cells during mechanical morcellation of myoma have led to an additional use of specimen retrieval bags for contained "in-bag" morcellation. This review will discuss the indications for use retrieval bags in gynecologic endoscopy, and describe the different specimen bags available to date.
