Pathology of the uterus and the adnexa, and even pelvic pathology outside of the female reproductive tract, can negatively impact reproductive success. Gynecologic reproductive surgery can improve ART cycle success, as well as spontaneous cycle fecundity under specific circumstances. Indications for surgery are often just as challenging as the microsurgical and minimally invasive techniques employed. My lecture will discuss the available evidence supporting the deleterious effect of common gynecologic pathology on reproduction and the possible impact of surgery (both positive and negative), and will show video excerpts of all surgical techniques.
At the end of this program, the participant should be able to:
1. Assess the impact of uterine pathology on ART success and discuss the role of surgery
2. Assess the impact of adnexal pathology on ART success and discuss the role of surgery
3. Assess the impact of extra-genital pathology on ART success and discuss the role of surgery
