Recent advancements in gynecology have all led to improvements in imaging technology, endoscopic facilities, opioid treatment, and scientific advancement. Progress has also resulted from a shift in the attitudes and practices of gynecologists themselves, in response to the higher standards and expertise of their patients, who are also pursuing new and creative techniques based on media ads and access to information reviewed by non-peer reviews, including the world wide web.
New advances in hormone replacement therapy have been motivated by the extended life span of menopausal women and their greater health standards. Increased monitoring and identification of other common issues affecting older women has also been increased by the increased use of such therapy. Delaying childbearing has contributed to a higher demand for successful fertility therapies and fertility-conserving surgical procedures.
Here are the top 5 advances that are doing the rounds in the field of gynecology.
- While hysterectomy is a treatment option for menorrhagia, sufficient use of medical medication, intrauterine system-releasing progestogen, and hysteroscopic endometrial surgery can provide the majority of women with successful treatment.
- With gondatrophin releasing hormone analogue therapy or embolisation of the uterine arteries, large uterine fibroids may be treated conservatively.
- In men with low sperm counts or azoospermia, modern methods in assisted reproductive technology have transformed the previous bad prognosis for fertility.
- The treatment of this disorder has strengthened and reduced the side effects of a new selective antimuscarinic medicine for bladder overactivity.
- After vaginal childbirth, damage to the anal sphincter is prevalent, but its prevention and proper treatment are not well known. Making progress in preventing this is also in the pipeline.
Apart from this, more and more technologies are being adopted to ease and smoothen the lives of the patient as well as gynecologists.
