Join Mr. Davor Jurkovic in his Presidential Address to learn more about the diagnosis and management of intrauterine ectopic pregnancies.
This a novel problem in clinical practice which has been precipitated by a profound increase in the number of caesarean sections and other surgical procedures on gravid and non-gravid uterus. There are still many uncertainties about the optimal approach to the diagnosis and management of these pregnancies. This often causes delays in initiating necessary treatment, which in turn contributes to the high maternal morbidity associated with these pregnancies.
In his talk, Mr. Jurkovic will highlight the need for developing new diagnostic algorithms to differentiate better between normally implanted and ectopic intrauterine pregnancies. He will propose measures which could be taken to improve endometrial and myometrial healing following uterine surgery to avoid creating conditions which facilitate ectopic implantation and abnormal placental development later in pregnancy.
