Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the years, gynecological surgery has evolved due to the numerous technological innovations that have paved the way for new therapeutic approaches. Minimally invasive surgery is the standard approach to the performance of several gynecologic procedures. Surgical innovations in hysteroscopic surgery (mini-resectoscopes, intrauterine morcellators, tissue retrieval systems, diode lasers, new miniaturized mechanical instruments, endometrial ablation devices, and portable and entry-level hysteroscopes) have radically changed the methods of treating intrauterine pathologies.

Laparoscopic surgery has widely extended its applications, with the development of miniaturized instruments (mini- and micro-laparoscopy), CO2 laser vaporization, diode laser vaporization, in-bag contained port-site power morcellement or transvaginal extraction of the surgical specimen, and even the adoption of natural orifice specimen extraction (NOSE), following bowel resection for deep infiltrating endometriosis robotic-assisted surgery has been adopted in several countries. Robotics may offer technological and ergonomic benefits that overcome the limitations associated with conventional laparoscopy. In addition, the recent development of vaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (vNOTES) has allowed us to combine the advantages of a minimally invasive approach, such as laparoscopy, with the known benefits of vaginal surgery. In this Special Issue, we would like to move this field forward by inviting original clinical and basic research articles, meta-analyses, and systematic reviews focused on new advances in gynecological surgery.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to address the recent developments of gynecological surgical procedures and new technological advances. We look forward to receiving your submissions to move the field of gynecological surgery forward.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Medicina is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
