From the Desk of the AAGL President — Announcing a JMIG Special Article from the Tissue Extraction Task Force
Cypress, CA — May 3, 2018 — On behalf of the members of the Tissue Extraction Task Force, I'm pleased to announce that a special article titled "Morcellation During Uterine Tissue Extraction: An Update" will be published in the May/June 2018 issue of JMIG and is currently available online at jmig.org.
This revision to AAGL's previous position statement published in 2014 was warranted following the FDA's published update in December 2017 on the role of electromechanical morcellation in surgeries for uterine fibroids incorporating the many new, high quality studies that have emerged over the last few years. For this guideline, we have updated our recommendations to provide you with additional evidence-based medicine to incorporate into your decision-making process and to aid in the counseling of your patients.
The AAGL takes great pride in being the leader in advancing the field of Minimally Invasive Gynecology and providing our members with valuable tools and resources.
