Joint RCOG/BSGE Meeting


The RCOG and BSGE are running two additional hysteroscopy workshop days for delegates who were unable to attend the hands-on sessions run as part of the hysteroscopy course in December 2016. In addition, there are likely to be spaces available for individuals who just wish to enhance their hysteroscopic surgical skills without attending the lecture day.

The workshops cover a range of both diagnostic and operative hysteroscopic surgery. Models and computer-simulated procedures are used covering skills for endometrial polypectomy, global endometrial ablation and hysteroscopic sterilisation.

Please note: the full Diagnostic and Operative Hysteroscopy Course will run in November 2017. Trainees who are undertaking, or wish to undertake, either of the relevant ATSMs will have the opportunity to book on the December course in advance of other delegates.

The workshops consist of:

Diagnostic hysteroscopy, case reviews and resection station for the duration of 3 hours. The resection is with either a potato-based model or sheep heart-model for the development of endometrial ablation and resection skills using electrosurgical tools. In addition, there will be an assessment of diagnostic hysteroscopy skills and a station for viewing examples and case studies.

Rotation around a series of five stations, each of 40 minutes duration to practice hysteroscopic sterilisation, endometrial polypectomy using bipolar electrodes, mechanical snares and morcellation, submucosal fibroid resection and global endometrial ablation. A mixture of computer simulation and models made from animal parts and vegetables are used.

The workshops run for 4 groups of delegates, each group will attend for ONE day.

  • Groups A and B start at 08:40 and finishes at 17:10 on Thursday 15 June OR Friday 16 June
