About Modern Hysteroscopy Training Courses

Training in hysteroscopy is difficult & challenging. The learning curve is bigger than laparoscopy for various reasons.

Hysteroscopy is routinely not been taught in teaching hospitals. Also,every gynaecologist knows that uterine cavity is an potential space with a volume of approximately of 10‐12 cc. It is difficult to maintain distension of the cavity & operate (due to communication thro tubes with peritoneal cavity & also leakage from cervix). To keep in mind with distension the thickness of uterine wall is reduced by 50%.The Preceptor [trainer] can't hold your hand while the student is operating on patient. Hence a graded, systematic–approach is required for teaching as well as learning hysteroscopy.

We in our centre have devised various uterine models wherein the candidates perform innumerable exercises which help them in acquiring & sharpening skills.

Course features:

  • Extensive Hands on Training on uterine models & animal organs
  • Live surgeries
  • Practical training [Tips & Tricks of Hysteroscopy]
  • Individual attention as only 6 candidates will be taken

Course Objectives

At the end of the course each candidate should be able to

  • Perform technically correct, safe & good diagnostic hysteroscopy
  • Perform technically correct, safe & good hysteroscopy with “No Touch Technique-Vaginoscopy”
  • Handle mechanical instruments correctly, effectively & ergonomically
  • Handle Resectoscope including coaxial 5fr.electrodes correctly, effectively & ergonomically
  • Understand basics of Electrosurgery in the uterus
  • Effectively set up an “Hysteroscopy Unit”
  • Understand “Do's & Don'ts” in hysteroscopy

Our teaching is based on TOAFL Model

[Target oriented, Organised, Assessment, Feedback Learning.]

Basic‐Essential skills:
  • Navigation with 30 degree hysteroscope, correct entry techniques, scientific method of using mechanical instruments
Mechanical Hysteroscopy:
  • On “PUNE HYSTEROSCOPY MODEL” wherein the trainee learns to proper use of distension media, removal of gas bubbles, excision of polyp, myoma & incision of septum.
Advanced Hysteroscopy:
  • Roller ball ablation, resection are taught on animal organs with resectoscope. Also the trainee is taught to use 5fr. coaxial electrodes.

PUNE HYSTEROSCOPY MODEL:

This uterine model is devised by Dr. Mahajan Vinayak from an indigenous material. It is effective, inexpensive & gives effect like an real time virtual simulator. It has multiple pathologies like Intrauterine septum, polyp, submucous myoma & needs to be distended with fluid. Only mechanical instruments can be used. Bleeding can be seen after cutting the tissue & which itself gives a REAL effect.

Dr. Vinayak Mahajan & Dr. Sangeeta Mahajan developed the passion for hysteroscopy & in order to pursue the passion went to stalwarts of hysteroscopy & achieved training from them.

Dr. Lotte Clevin, Dr. Steffani Bettocchi, Dr. Rudi Compo, Dr. Philip, Dr. Martin Farrugia, Dr. Justin Clarke are the masters from whom they acquired & sharpen the skills.
