AAGL Recommends Vaginal or Laparoscopic Approach for Hysterectomies
The American Academy of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) recommends minimally invasive surgical approaches such as vaginal hysterectomy (VH) and laparoscopic hysterectomy (LH) for benign uterine disease, according to a position statement published online November 7 in the Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology.
"It is the position of the AAGL that most hysterectomies for benign disease should be performed either vaginally or laparoscopically and that continued efforts should be taken to facilitate these approaches," the authors of the position statement write. "Surgeons without the requisite training and skills required for the safe performance of VH or LH should enlist the aid of colleagues who do or should refer patients requiring hysterectomy to such individuals for their surgical care."

The conference is intended to comprehensively review various concepts of minimally invasive techniques in the field of gynecology. Seminars include the review of laparoscopic principles, anesthetic challenges in laparoscopy, classic multiport laparoscopy, various minimally invasive approaches of hysterectomies. In particular, the conference will focus on the concept of Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) and its technical applications in the field of gynecology.
Practitioners are presented with an overwhelming amount of devices, technologies and options solicited by the companies who sell the equipment. The conference will provide objective evaluations and presentations to the attendees. The workshops will enable the attendees to discern which devices they may prefer by means of handson workshops with side-by-side comparisons. The practical quality- driven tutorials will provide the attendees the knowledge base to make educated decisions about the type of equipment they may want to focus on in particular. Attendees will benefit multi-fold by efficiently having the options at their fingertips, at one convenient conference and actually trying the equipment.
Lectures will demonstrate superior patient satisfaction, shortened hospital stay, improved convalescence and increased practice profitability by the utilization of the new minimally invasive technologies with specific emphasis on single incision laparoscopic surgery.
