Abstracts 2016: Quantity AND Quality
Our members continue to amaze us! This year’s Call for Abstracts is officially closed and we are excited to report that we received an impressive 870 abstracts – just 30 shy of last year’s record. Written abstracts continue to comprise almost 2X the number of video abstracts; however, we received 35 more videos this year. The category with the highest entries (35%) is Laparoscopic Surgeries, followed by Endometriosis (11.3%), and Hysteroscopy (10.7%) rounding out the top 3. Among the written abstracts, there is an increase in the Pelvic Pain and Oncology categories, while videos saw the greatest increase in Laparoscopic Surgeries, Robotics and Urogynecology/Vaginal Surg. All subspecialties are represented so we anticipate this year’s Congress will offer interesting findings, fresh learnings, and global perspectives. Grading the abstracts is the next step in the process which began on May 9th. Thank you and good luck to all who submitted!
