bsgeThis meeting covers a range of theoretical and practice of both diagnostic and operative hysteroscopic surgery. The lecture day this year will be conducted online in view of the current pandemic.

Lectures will cover the basic aspects of hysteroscopy and will include current and future developments in hysteroscopic procedures, new energy forms and innovative ambulatory surgery.  The role of hysteroscopy in the management of abnormal uterine bleeding and fertility will be explored. There will be an emphasis on undertaking hysteroscopic procedures in an outpatient setting with guidance on how to optimise and develop such services. The lectures will include the pathophysiology of the common conditions encountered hysteroscopically and provides tips and tricks in managing these conditions. The day has been structured to include Q&A sessions to allow interaction between delegates and speakers.

An additional online station will be available for viewing hysteroscopy images, videos and case studies to be followed by interactive discussion about the cases. Delegates will need to have viewed the images in advance and answer questions, before joining in the online discussion during the lecture day.
