Excision of endometriosis – optimising surgical techniques
AbstractEndometriosis has an innate capacity to involve various structures, with varying degrees of infiltration. Because of this, it offers some of the most challenging surgery in our field.1 It exists in three distinct entities: peritoneal, ovarian and deep endometriosis, and remains an enigmatic disease for general gynaecologists and specialist laparoscopic surgeons alike. With the centralisation of severe endometriosis services in the UK,2,3 the most complex cases will be treated by multidisciplinary teams in endometriosis centres accredited by the British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE).

Improving basic training in obstetric ultrasound: developing a framework for specialist trainees
AbstractUltrasound imaging is a cornerstone of modern-day obstetric practice. It is critical in normal pregnancy and in the detection and management of disease. Its undisputed importance means the ability to competently perform ultrasound examinations is an asset for all clinicians involved in the care of pregnant women.

Adrenal disease and pregnancy: an overview
AbstractKey content Although uncommon, adrenal disorders in pregnancy are associated with severe complications, especially if undiagnosed or poorly managed. Some women are on long-term steroids (especially those known to suffer from adrenal insufficiency) that suppress endogenous adrenal function. Under stress, these can become insufficient – particularly around labour and the puerperium. Adrenal insufficiency, for example, has been associated with maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality if untreated, while phaeochromocytoma is associated with considerable maternal mortality. Clinical features, diagnosis and ...

Nonepithelial ovarian cancers
AbstractKey content• Nonepithelial ovarian cancers (NEOCs) are rare forms of ovarian cancer, including malignant ovarian germ cell tumours (MOGCTs), sex cord stromal tumours (SCSTs) and ovarian sarcoma.• Tumour markers including alpha-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotrophin, lactate dehydrogenase and inhibin can be useful in aiding preoperative diagnosis of malignant ovarian masses.• NEOCs are staged using a similar classification to epithelial ovarian tumours; however, the staging system for male germ cell tumours is considered a more useful prognostic tool.• These tumours can occur at any age; howe...

Fertility on ice: an overview of fertility preservation for children and adolescents with cancer
AbstractKey content Continued advances in oncology treatments have led to better survival rates for children and young adults with cancer. An important ‘late effect’ of cancer treatment is the loss of fertility. Although many survivors of childhood cancers go on to conceive without difficulty, the potential loss of fertility is a concern for children and young adults with cancer, their parents and caregivers. We review current options for fertility preservation (FP) for prepubertal and postpubertal girls and boys, including oocyte cryopreservation, ovarian tissue cryopreservation, sperm cryopreservation an...

How doctors in South ‐East Asia can benefit from the new RCOG CPD Programme
AbstractThe Swiss-born psychologist Jean Piaget once said that, “only education is capable of saving our societies from possible collapse, whether violent, or gradual”. Along with many other legacies of European colonisation since the early 16th century, perhaps the greatest impact was the introduction of Western education. In India, Lord Macaulay, through t he English Education Act 1835, introduced the English language as the official administrative language and medium of instruction for training of English-speaking Indians as teachers.

Antenatal venous thromboembolism
AbstractKey content Venous thromboembolism (VTE) remains one of the leading causes of maternal mortality and morbidity in the developed world. Clinical diagnosis of antenatal VTE is difficult and scoring systems have historically been of limited benefit in the pregnant population. However, evidence is emerging to suggest that pregnant women can be risk stratified for pulmonary embolism without the need for imaging in all cases. Optimal treatment is with weight adjusted therapeutic dose low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) subcutaneously. In rare cases, there may be a role for retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filters. T...

Intrauterine contraception
AbstractKey content An Intrauterine device (IUD), also known as intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) or intrauterine contraception (IUC) offers reliable long-acting reversible contraception; however, some patients can be hesitant to choose this option because of misconceptions about side effects and perceived complications. A comprehensive knowledge of IUC is required to allow adequate counselling and to dispel myths. There are many different methods of IUC, including four different levonorgestrel-containing intrauterine systems (LNG-IUS) and multiple different copper intrauterine devices, with different insertion t...

Identification and management of fetal anaemia: a practical guide
AbstractKey content Fetal anaemia can be caused by alloimmune or infectious red cell destruction, disorders of fetal red cell production, fetal haemorrhage and as a complication of monochorionic multifetal pregnancy. A fetus at risk from maternal alloimmunisation can be detected by maternal serum screening for red cell antibodies and by fetal ultrasonography. Undiagnosed cases may present in routine obstetric practice, so awareness of the identification and initial management of fetal anaemia is important. Pregnancies must be triaged depending on clinical urgency, with input from fetal medicine specialists required. ...
