Presented in cooperation with the AAGL Special Interest Group on Hysteroscopy
This course has been approved for ABOG Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV
This course provides a fundamental background in developing and enhancing a hysteroscopy service in both office-based and operative room settings. During the morning didactic session, participants will learn how to manage common challenges encountered with providing hysteroscopic surgery procedures. The afternoon session will consist of a hands-on simulation lab, allowing the participants the opportunity to practice with multiple technologies including: traditional hysteroscopic resectoscopes, hysteroscopic tissue retrieval systems, endometrial ablation while performing common operative procedures.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Identify challenges and opportunities for implementation of office hysteroscopy; 2) classify and manage symptomatic submucous leiomyoma; 3) diagnose and formulate management plans for common uterine pathologies such as polyps, retained products of conception and isthmocele; 4) analyze and manage common risks associated with hysteroscopic surgery; 5) explore common reasons for endometrial ablation failure and improve patient selection; and 6) optimize chances for successful placement of hysteroscopic sterilization devices.
