International Conference on Minimally Invasive Gynecologic laparoscopy Surgery (2022) by AAGL. (America)

Dr. Hrishikesh pandit of Pandit Hospital (Ahmednagar) recently attended a prestigious gynecologic laparoscopy conference by AAGL (American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) on MIGS (Minimally Invasive gynecologic Surgeries) at Gaylord Rockies Resort and convention center (Aurora, Colorado, US) from 1st to 4th December.

He is one of the very few doctors from India who got selected to present case reports in front worldwide audience of leading gynecologic laparoscopists.

AAGL is the largest medical society focused on gynecologic surgery, with an international membership of over 7,100 physicians and healthcare providers committed to advancing minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS). AAGL’s Annual Global Congress is the premier scientific program that provides the world’s finest gynecologic surgeons with the latest education and best practices in MIGS.

AAGL is the largest medical association advancing health care for women through excellence in clinical practice, education, research, innovation, and advocacy. In 1971, Dr. Jordan M. Phillips and ten charter members founded the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists. An early adopter of the laparoscopic surgical technique, Dr. Phillips was a visionary who imagined an infinite future for gynecologic surgery.

This year annual congress by AAGL 2022 was organized at Gaylord Rockies Resort and convention center (Aurora, Colorado, US) from 1st to 4th December. It was attended by renowned gynecologic laparoscopists from USA and around the world from 110 different countries.

Dr. Hrishikesh Pandit has more than ten years of experience in the field of Gynecologic Laparoscopy.

He has performed many complicated cases and his techniques have been appreciated by many expert gynecologic laparoscopists from India. He has done fellowships from prestigious universities from Germany, France & UAE.
He presented two cases at this annual event which was much appreciated by many gynecologic laparoscopists.

Case 1: Laparoscopic Repair of Cervico-Vaginal Agenesis in a Previously Failed Attempt of Mcindoe's Vaginoplasty.

Study Objective: A unique Laparoscopic approach for surgical repair of Cervico-vaginal agenesis.

Design: A case report with 6 months follow-up

Setting: laparoscopy surgery with patient in lithotomy position under anaesthesia.

Patients or Participants: A 23 yrs old female came with primary amenorrhea with lower abdominal pain since 2 years.

Her MRI was sugggestive of

1) upper 2/3rd vaginal aplasia with hematoma in the cervical canal

2) b/l hematosalpinx

3) b/l ovarian hemorrhagic cysts.

McIndoe’s Vaginoplasty was attempted 6months back which had failed.

Interventions: Laparoscopic cervico- vaginal agenesis repair was planned

Measurements and Main Results: The occurrence of cervical agenesis is quite uncommon (1:80 000–1:100 000) and only 39% of these cases simultaneously have vaginal agenesis. Initially, these cases were managed by hysterectomy or abdominal cervicovaginoplasty. Later, a minimally invasive approach came to light with the advent of laparoscopy and surgical expertise

Principles of surgery:

Laparoscopic management of Hematosalpinx and hemorrhagic cysts.

Dissection of UV fold and pushing the bladder down to expose 3-4 cm length of the vagina.

Dissection between cervix and vagina in the right plane.

Creating neo-vagina by dissection of the vaginal agenesis.

Vertical incision on the cervix and horizontal incision on the vagina

Suturing techniques between cervix and vagina and placing a silicon catheter in cervical canal and neo-vagina.

Conclusion: Laparoscopic approach for cervico vaginal agenesis is better than vaginal approach with cutting cervix vertically for patency of cervical cannal.

Case 2: Total Laparoscopic Cervical Encerclage in 16 Weeks Pregnant Uterine Didelphis Uterus

Study Objective: To demonstrate Laparoscopic approach for encirclage in pregnancy in a ℅ uterine didelphys

Design: A case report

Setting: laparoscopy surgery with patient in lithotomy position under anaesthesia

Patients of Participants: A 26 yrs old female came G3 A2 with previous 2- 2nd trimester abortions with failed vaginal encirclage and uterine didelphys diagnosed on MRI with 16 weeks pregnancy.

Interventions: Laparoscopic cerclage was planned using merselene tape

Measurements and Main Results: Cervical insufficiency (CI) or incompetence is a well-known condition in obstetrics with an incidence of 0.1–1%, and is notoriously associated with a high risk of second trimester abortion and/or preterm delivery.

The traditional surgical treatment for cervical insufficiency consists of vaginal placement of cervical stitches, known as transvaginal cervical cerclage (TVC).

Advances in the field of minimally invasive surgery resulted in development of a new approach to cervical cerclage placement. Laparoscopic cerclage offers the benefit of reduced blood loss, reduced postoperative pain, and fewer adhesions, as well as decreased length of hospital stay and overall faster recovery time.

Principles of surgery:

  1. Dissection of loose UV fold of peritoneum.
  2. Creation of window in the broad ligament on both sides.
  3. Passing the needle of merselene tape from medial to the uterine artery of left side at the level of internal os.
  4. Passing the merselene tape all around the uterus
  5. Passing the needle of merselene tape from medial to uterine artery on right side.
  6. Tightening the merselene tape at the level of the internal os

Conclusion: Similar to the transabdominal approach, laparoscopic cerclage can be placed during pregnancy or as an interval procedure. Success rates for laparoscopic cerclage were reported in the range of 76% to 100%.

He was aided by Dr. Ayesha Ansari to prepare both the reports.
