Joint BSGI-BSGE Meeting, 10-11 November 2017

It is a privilege and pleasure to invite you all to join us at the upcoming BSGI/BSGE Meeting on Endometriosis, the first of its kind in the UK. Our aim is to update the management of endometriosis, taking an across-the-board multidisciplinary approach and in particular focusing on:

  • Improvements in non-invasive diagnosis, with a view to making these available to all women with endometriosis in the future
  • Changes in guidance for surgical management
  • Role of medical management

This meeting will be an excellent opportunity to present and discuss all the latest developments related to the diagnosis, staging and management of endometriosis. This meeting is supported by Endometriosis UK.

Organising Committee:

Nazar Amso       Saikat Banerjee       Christopher Guyer       Ertan Saridogan

The Programme

The first day’s scientific programme will be split into two sections. In the morning, we will cover the current methods for accurate diagnosis as well as holding interactive debates to agree on the best practical application across the United Kingdom both in Imaging and Gynaecology Departments.  The afternoon will focus on advancements in the management of endometriosis, which is facilitated by accurate disease staging.  <<Download full programme>>

In the evening, we will hold The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy Endometriosis Centres meeting and a Conference Dinner, to which all are welcome.

There is an optional extension to the course on the second morning. This will be divided into hands on imaging training or surgical training. Both will use specially designed interactive hands on trainers, offering an excellent opportunity for individualised simulation training.

If you are involved in the care of women with endometriosis, either in diagnosis or management at a secondary or tertiary level then please come and join us at this ground-breaking meeting. Together we can shape the future of the management and care of the challenging condition in the UK.

Post meeting - Saturday, 11 November 2017
(spaces limited)

Workshop 1: Hands-on Imaging for Severe Endometriosis

State of the Art Ultrasound Simulation and 3D Image Post-processing Training

Delegates will be divided into two groups and will practice the identification of a spectrum of pelvic pathologies, in particular endometriosis, using Transvaginal simulator(s) and 3D volumes manipulation on ultrasound machines.

Workshop 2: Laparoscopic Hands On Training (HOT) Session

Delegates will be divided into pairs and invited to complete various tasks using a laparoscopic box trainer. The workshop will consist of different validated exercises based on the European Academy LAST+T (laparoscopic skills training and testing method) and SUT+T  (suturing training and testing) method.

The LAST+T method allows participants to train and test three areas of laparoscopic psychomotor skills:

  • Camera navigation
  • Hand eye coordination
  • Bimanual coordination.

Delegates will also be invited to develop and perfect their laparoscopic suturing skills. Participants will be individually coached by expert faculty members to develop needle manipulation, intra-corporeal knotting, tissue approximation and use of both dominant and non-dominant hand. Specialised suturing pads to test accuracy and degree of trauma during laparoscopic suturing will also be available.
