We agree with much of what she has written but cannot help but feel that she presents an unnecessarily negative, alarmist and to some extent misleading view of the potential benefits of excising submucous fibroids in

Digital Video Technology and Surgical Training

Pietro Gambadauro and Adam Magos Minimally Invasive Therapy Unit and Endoscopy Training Centre, University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Royal Free Hospital, Pond Street, NW3 2QG London, England, UK European Clinics in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, 2007, 3:31-34 Abstract For several reasons, surgical training is suffering important reductions in terms of time and opportunities. New approaches to surgical training are required, and new training strategies should be proposed to maintain surgical standards. Affordable technologies allowing digital capture and recording of surgical procedures are now widely available, and we believe that the use of such technologies could play a role in the

Where is the aorta? Is it worth palpating the aorta prior to laparoscopy?

Dimitrios Polyzos, Nikolaos Papadopoulos, Lynne Chapman, Panos Papalambrous, Vasiliki Varela, Pietro Gambadauro, Adam Magos Minimally Invasive Therapy Unit & Endoscopy Training Centre, University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Royal Free Hospital, Pond Street, Hampstead, London, NW3 2QG, England. Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand. 2007;86(2):235-9 Background. Injury to major retroperitoneal vessels is the most catastrophic complication of laparoscopy. Knowledge of the site of the aortic bifurcation prior to inserting the umbilical port would be expected to reduce the risk of this type of injury. The aim of the study is to determine the feasibility of identifying the aortic bifurcation by palpation prior to

Laparoscopic conservative excision of a rare asymptomatic 11-cm ovarian dermoid cyst containing a mandible with seven teeth

Sebastiano Campo, Maria Marone, Pietro Gambadauro, Nicola Garcea Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Catholic University of The Sacred Heart, Rome, Italy Gynaecological Endoscopy 2000,9 (1):65–68. A case is presented of conservative laparoscopic excision of a rare asymptomatic 11-cm ovarian dermoid cyst which contained a mandible with seven teeth, found in a 22-year-old patient. To reduce spillage, the ovary was placed in a 15-cm diameter endoscopic bag where the cyst was enucleated and then removed from the abdominal cavity. No intraoperative complications occurred. No signs or symptoms of peritonitis were observed. The patient was discharged on the first postoperative day. At
