Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Aim: To clarify the status of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) in the Asia/Oceania region. Methods: Survey questionnaires were sent out to the representative of AOFOG countries. They consisted of questions on the general status of MIGS, the clinical indication of MIGS, cost coverage, company support, training and certification for MIGS, patient preference for MIGS and requirements for the AOFOG. Results: Developmental stage of MIGS in this region was roughly divided into three categories: fully developed countries, countries in the developmental stage and countries in the rudimentary stage. Clinical indication of MIGS and training opportunity of young doctors were correlated with the developmental stage. Conclusion: Support by AOFOG should be considered according to the developmental stage of each country. Collecting updated information on MIGS in each member country is important to provide adequate support.
