Interdisciplinary Laparoscopic News From the European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy by Anja
Herrmann, Rudy Leon De Wilde Professor and Head of Department of
Obstetrics, Gynecology and Gynecological Oncology, PIUS Clinic, Carl-von-Ossietzky-University
Oldenburg, Germany (Rudy Leon De Wilde)

congress of the ESGE, held in September 2012 in Paris, a broad spectrum of
gynecological topics were presented containing a variety of presentations which
could be of interest to laparoscopic surgeons of other specialties as well.

invasive surgery are well known among surgeons, laparoscopy is still not implemented
in all hospitals especially in the case of complex procedures.
