Long term pain management -  Fevzi Shakir, Consultant Gynaecologist at Royal Free Hospital Endometriosis Centre & Arif Ghazi, Clinical Lead in Pelvic Pain at Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

Some of the gynaecological resesarch projects at The University of Edinburgh - Priscilla Fernandez, Specialist Research Nurse & Midwife at The University of Edinburgh

In this talk we discuss the ESPriT2 trial which seeks to generate data that will compare outcomes for surgery using excision or ablation. At the moment there is not enough high-quality research on the use of excision versus ablation for surgical removal of endometriosis. We hope the results of this trial can provide information needed to help those decide the best treatment for them. We request that any further questions or comments be directed to webinars@endometriois-uk.org

Surgery and why some may need more than one with Liza Ball - Consultant Gynaecoloist at the Royal London Hospital, Barts NHS Trust 

In this webinar it is said that during pregnancy endometriosis is supressed and it is known to not return during this time. Endometriosis UK acknowledges that pregnancy can suppress endometriosis but we do not necessarily endorse this method to manage your condition. Please contact our support services on support@endometriosis-uk.org. Endometriosis UK do not endorse any of the commercial products mentioned in this webinar.

 

Getting the most out of your Gynaecology Appointments with Joanne Hanley - Endometriosis UK's Specialist Advisor and Advanced Clinical Practitioner at the Northwest Pelvic Pain and Endometriosis Centre

Endometriosis, Adenomyosis and Hysteroscopies with Ilyas Arshad - Consultant Gynaecologist, Denise Carter - Endometriosis Specialist Nurse and Karen Loy - Gynaecology Specialist Nurse & Hysteroscopist, Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust

This webinar has been reviewed by the Endometriosis UK’s Specialist Advisor and external medical advisors following complaints it contains incorrect information. The complaints related to this statement made in the webinar: Mirena is a really good first line treatment to also help diagnose endometriosis because if the pain settles it can give a good indication that it could be down to endometriosis. what we don’t want, we don’t want to be doing a lot of surgical treatments on really young ladies, so it is a good diagnostic tool as well”. This comment was made in the context of treating young women (teenagers) who were originally treated at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Once they turned 18, they were sent to Liverpool Women’s Hospital to continue their care, many of them at the time did not have an official diagnosis. This comment was followed by further discussion about health professional concern about performing a lot of surgical procedures on young women. Mirena coil was given as one type of indicator for suspected endometriosis for a specific group (teenagers and very young women) rather than a definitive diagnostic tool for all those with endometriosis. In the interest of delivering clear information, our medical advisory panel have stated that Mirena coil can indicate that the symptom of pain is related to hormones but cannot give a diagnosis of endometriosis or adenomyosis. Comments have been removed from this video and we request that any further questions or comments be directed to webinars@endometriois-uk.org.
