The AAGL Endometriosis Classification App was launched at the AAGL Global Congress by Scientific Program Chair and 2022 Board President, Dr. Mauricio Abrão, who also played an instrumental role in the development of the diagnostic tool. The new app provides surgeons the ability to calculate the severity of an endometriosis patient’s disease, which then allows for the implementation of a more personalized treatment plan.
Available in the App Store, the app called AAGL Endo Classification is accessible for both Android and IOS mobile devices.
Identifying the limitations of existing classification systems prompted AAGL to develop a new one. The new mobile app allows surgeons to calculate the extent of the patient’s endometriosis score, based upon AAGL’s severity ranking. The sum of component scores across all anatomic sites defines the total score, creating 4 stages within the AAGL scoring system, which is then used to determine the complexity stage.
The development of the app evolved from the paper, AAGL 2021 Endometriosis Classification: An Anatomy-based Surgical Complexity Score written by Dr. Mauricio Abrão.
