International Consensus Statement for recommended terminology describing hysteroscopic procedures 
J. Carugno, G. Grimbizis, M. Franchini, L. Alonso, L. Bradley, R. Campo, U. Catena, C. De Angelis, A. Di Spiezio Sardo, M. Farrugia, S. Haimovich, K. Isaacson, N. Moawad, E. Saridogan, T.J. Clark

The structure and delivery of health care services vary across national health care systems, with differing credentialing requirements, funding, mechanisms for reimbursement and laws and regulations. These differences have hampered a clear understanding of how contemporary hysteroscopic services are currently being delivered globally and how best to do this.

Specifically, there is no consensus regarding the terminology used to describe the different hysteroscopic procedures, including the setting in which they are performed and the model of care (i.e. need for elective hospital admission and length of stay) of the patient undergoing hysteroscopic procedures. Terms such as “in-office”, “outpatient”, “ambulatory”, “day-case”, “in-patient”, “operating room” are used frequently interchangeably without standardised definition or common understanding.   

Therefore, the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL), the European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE) and the Global Community of Hysteroscopy (GCH) formed an international working group of experts in hysteroscopy to develop a consensus statement of recommended terminology to use for describing different aspects of hysteroscopic procedures: (i) pain management, (ii) the setting where procedures are conducted, (iii) the model of care relating to the length of stay and need for admission, (iv) the type of procedure and (v) the approach to hysteroscopy.

Registration is now open and the Preliminary Scientific Programme* is online for the ESGE 30th Annual Congress which will take place as a hybrid event (onsite in Rome, Italy and virtually transmitted), on 3rd-5th October 2021.    

The Scientific Committee has developed a programme to offer the participants three days of high quality, evidence-based topics and Live Surgeries from contemporary developments in various disciplines of Gynaecological Endoscopy.    

On Sunday 3rd October the morning programme will begin with Pre-Congress Courses on popular topics such as Hysteroscopy, Endometriosis, Neuropelveology and Access to Pelvic Sidewall, of which the latter two include cadaveric dissection demonstration! A GESEA Train the Trainer PC Course will also be available for a limited number of participants.    

Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th October GESEA certification exams for Level 1 (Bachelor) and Level 2 (MIGS) are planned.   To provide participants with the best of both worlds, three parallel sessions will be live streamed each day from the Congress venue, and the content will be made available on the virtual congress platform to participants throughout the Congress and afterwards on-demand until the end of December 2021.     

Abstract Submission closes 17th May 2021!  

The official Abstract Submission for the ESGE 30th Annual Congress closes on 17th May 2021 Midnight CET. Grab your chance and contribute to the world of gynaecological endoscopy with your scientific work and research. This year you can submit an oral, video or ePoster abstract, as well as PHD abstracts. We will award the Best Selected Abstracts this year during our Award Ceremony on Tuesday 5th October!*Preliminary programme, please bear in mind changes can occur.

The SIG Urogynaecology of the ESGE – in collaboration with Facts, Views and Vision in ObGyn – will organize a webinar on Alternatives to Laparoscopic Sacrocolpopexy. Laparoscopic Sacrocolpopexy is considered as the gold standard in management of pelvic organ prolapse.

Date: Saturday 24th April 2021, 12:45 – 14:45 hrs CET

The aim of this webinar is to deliver topical lectures on alternatives to this technique with a panel of internationally recognized experts.   

This webinar will present indications, technical aspects, tips and tricks and surgical outcomes of alternative management of POP by pectopexy, lateral suspension or laparoscopic native tissue repair. The second part of this session will present alternatives to currently available meshes, the learning aspects as well as the long-term outcomes and nature of recurrences.   

You will also have the opportunity to discuss with the experts in the Question and Answers session following the lectures.  

Relive the ESGE Live 2020 event of December 6 to 8, 2020.

Free registration for ESGE members and ESGE Corporate Society Members.

Those who had previously registered for the event can request their unique voucher code to access the content free of charge.

ESGE 30th Annual Congress Call For Abstracts

Abstract Submission opens 25th February!

On Thursday 25th February 2021 our official abstract submission opens. You can then submit your clinical and scientific work for the ESGE 30th Annual Congress to be held in Rome, Italy on 3rd – 5th October 2021.

The ESGE Annual Congress is now one of the most important congresses in the field of gynaecological endoscopy and is attended by an ever growing number of healthcare professionals as well as the industry.

Hybrid Congress: Onsite + virtual presentations

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. If your abstract is selected for inclusion in the programme as oral presentation, you will be required to provide a pre-recorded presentation for inclusion in the virtual part of hybrid congress this year.

If the COVID-19 situation improves to allow onsite presentation, the Best Selected Oral and Best Selected Video presenters will be invited to present onsite. All posters, videos and free communications will be presented virtually on the congress platform.

Be aware that we will have two portals to submit an abstract:

1. Regular Abstract Submission (oral, video and poster)

2. PhD Thesis Abstracts

Deadline

The deadline for abstract submission is 17th May 2021 midnight CET and registration deadline to Congress for abstract submitters is 7th July 2021.

More information can be found on our congress website: www.esgecongress.eu

Looking forward to receiving your abstracts!
