NORWALK, Conn., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that OBGYN.net will present over the coming weeks special coverage from the 42(nd) AAGL Global Congress on Minimally Invasive Surgery, which took place November 10-14, 2013 just outside of Washington, DC, in National Harbor, Maryland.
More than 1200 Ob/Gyns from all over the world attended this specialist meeting, and OBGYN.net , the leading online community for clinicians in Women's Health, will feature coverage of the latest study findings, surgical devices, and best practices related to minimally invasive gynecology. Some recent highlights include:
-- In-Office Treatment of Septate Uterus with Bipolar Electrode Improves Fertility: New research from Ob/Gyns from Venezuela shows that fertility can be improved in women with septate uterus via outpatient hysteroscopic metroplasty using a bipolar energy source. -- Maintaining Surgical Proficiency Is Just as Important as Achieving It: Training to be a minimally invasive surgeon generally requires performing about 20 procedures. New data show that maintaining surgical proficiency with 20 or more procedures a year is just as important, because surgical outcomes are poorer for surgeons who don't.
