The chief physician of the Infertility Treatment Center of the ISIDA clinic, reproductive physician Svetlana Shiyanova attended the second World Congress on Hysteroscopy – Global Congress on Hysteroscopy.
The Congress was held from April 30 to May 4 in Barcelona and was devoted to the problems of intrauterine pathology and methods of hysteroscopic correction (examination of the uterine cavity with an endoscope). A special focus of attention of the congress participants was therapeutic approaches to fertility restoration. The speakers were dominated by specialists working in the centers of assisted reproductive technologies.
“The program of the congress was extremely rich, and the prospects that open up thanks to modern hysteroscopic methods of treatment give hope, even with complex pathology, to achieve results thanks to which the onset and gestation of pregnancy becomes completely real”, – Svetlana Shiyanova shared her impressions of participating in the congress. – “The Congress was held in an interactive way, allowing everyone present to join the discussion of cases and diagnoses, as well as to communicate with world experts”.
Since the advent of endoscopic methods of surgical treatment, the development of hysteroscopy has been taking rapid steps. New techniques allow performing interventions without general anesthesia not only for diagnostic purposes, but also for a variety of corrective interventions. This became possible thanks to the improvement and optimization of intrauterine instruments. Interestingly, the vast majority of the techniques and technologies presented at the exhibition are performed with disposable tools.
New approaches have undeniable advantages for the patient: there is no need for hospitalization, there is no load on the body due to intravenous anesthesia. It is also important that the cost of medical intervention is reduced. Such broad opportunities have become real thanks to the collaboration of the latest engineering developments with the best practices of leading specialists in the field of endoscopy.
