This section explains the requirements of the laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures you have to submit.
Total hysterectomy of own choosing.
The surgeon is expected to perform a total laparoscopic hysterectomy of own choosing. For recommendations on the technical aspects of a laparoscopic hysterectomy, please consult the article Surgical steps of total laparoscopic hysterectomy as published in Facts, Views and Vision in ObGyn, the journal of the ESGE.
Execute a diagnostic hysteroscopy as first surgeon of a case of own choosing. Preferably, this is an interesting, challenging or unusual case. Examples are: Intrauterine adhesions, sub endometrial adenomyosis, long septum, T–shape uterus, congenital uterine malformations with concomitant pathologies like myoma, adhesions, and other, placental remnants, endometritis, endometrial hyperplasia, endometrial cancer, stenotic cervix, etc.
Please pay attention to:
Vaginoscopic, atraumatic cervical os-canal entry
Hysteroscope navigation ability, avoiding forceful progression of the hysteroscope and use of rotational movements following the cervical canal and reaching the endometrial cavity
Systematic examination of the cervical canal and endometrial cavity
Panoramic as well as close-up views
Effort to evaluate the endometrium status
Ruling out or accurate diagnosis of congenital uterine anomalies
Concomitant use of peri and intra-operative sonography where needed
Diagnosis of the pathology based on hysteroscopic criteria e.g. type of endometrium, type of myoma, etc
Description of pathology, anatomical location, degree of severity
Diagnosis and differential diagnosis where relevant
