In the field of endometriosis, several classification, staging and reporting systems have been developed. However, endometriosis classification, staging and reporting systems that have been published and validated for use in clinical practice have not been systematically reviewed up to now.
Different classification systems have been developed for endometriosis, using different definitions for the disease, the different subtypes, symptoms and treatments. In addition, an International Glossary on Infertility and Fertility Care was published in 2017 by the International Committee for Monitoring Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ICMART) in collaboration with other organisations. An international working group convened over the development of a classification or descriptive system for endometriosis. As a basis for such system, a terminology for endometriosis was considered a condition sine qua non.
It is our great pleasure and honour to welcome you to Rome on the occasion of the ESGE 30th Annual Congress.
This year, the Congress President, Professor Enrico Vizza, our Honorary Congress President Dr. Rudi Campo and ESGE President, Professor Giovanni Scambia and the Scientific Chairs, are proud to host you in Italy and in the beautiful and timeless city of Rome.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are designing the Congress with the aim to reach all participants, by hosting a hybrid event (onsite and virtual) over three days, Sunday 3rd to Tuesday 5th October 2021.
The theme of this Congress, ‘Per Aspera ad astra: through hardship reaching the stars’ is especially appropriate in these current times. Believing in something, defining ambitious projects and working hard to realise them, are all legitimate and important purposes (even opportune), because they build their foundations in hope. The hope that we have not lost in the difficult months we have faced and that guides us towards rebirth and innovations. This has been the driving force for ESGE scientific activities and adds new purpose for our patient-centred approach.
The Scientific Committee has developed a programme to offer the participants high-quality, evidence-based topics from the contemporary developments in various disciplines of Gynaecological Endoscopy.
Furthermore, live surgical sessions and GESEA certification exams will be among the innovations of the scientific programme, which aim to improve the necessary skills to ensure better outcomes of our patients.
Roma, historic city and capital of the country of Italy. Roma is the Eternal City and is also called “Caput Mundi” (Capital of the World), remaining today a political capital, a religious centre, and a memorial to the creative imagination of the past.
We are looking forward to welcoming you and returning to sharing great learning experiences together, “E poi uscimmo a riveder le stelle” (then we went out to see the stars again)
cit. Dante Alighieri, L’Inferno.
The workshop will be mostly delivered in an interactive, conversational style and will have a particular focus on surgical techniques and tips and tricks.
This workshop is aimed at gynaecologists of all levels who wish to further expand their surgical skills in excision of endometriosis. The workshop will cover some basics required for all levels but will also include tips and tricks for advanced endometriosis surgery.
ESGE, in collaboration with Facts, Views and Vision in ObGyn present a new webinar: Controversies in Deep Endometriosis: from Diagnosis to Surgery, an Interdisciplinary Challenge.
