And don’t forget to register the gala dinner and Complimentary conference tour.


We are looking forward to meeting you soon this September!

3D Video Case Demonstration: Ya-Ming Cheng


In this “minimally-cut” video, we will demonstrate a case with recurrent pelvic endometriosis, ovarian multiple endometriomas, frozen pelvis, and posterior DIE lesions (including rectal DIE).


There are some highlights in this video demonstration:

  1. The beauty and power of 3D image system
  2. How to safely unravel the frozen pelvis, in virgin patient without the usage of any uterine manipulator nor rectal probe
  3. Multiple endometriomas: how to maximize the ovarian reserve, and how to re-approximate the broken ovarian tissue
  4. How to identify and to preserve the pelvic autonomic nerves in patients with frozen pelvis
  5. Nerve-sparing radical DIE excision, including excision of DIE of torus uterinus
  6. Rectal discoid resection and enterotomy repair
  7. Applying Seprafilm under laparoscopy

The 7th Asian Conference on Endometriosis had ended up with the great success thanks to all of your participation. The certificate of attendance is now available to download. Please login to the registration system.


Congress highlight is also available in the photo gallery
