Dr. Seckin is presenting his own method of diagnosing endometriosis in early stages in Melbourne Australia.

Dr. Seckin will be presenting a lecture titled, “Blue Contrast Techniques for Visualizing Subtle Endometriosis, Controversy or Fact?” during the endometriosis session of the The International Society for Gynecologic Endoscopy (ISGE) 24th Annual Congress in conjunction with the Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy and Surgery 25th Annual Scientific Meeting in Melbourne Australia. Titled, “Controversies and Challenges in Minimally Invasive Surgery,” this Congress brings together the leading minds in gynecological medical care and research, including Dr. Tamer Seckin.

Abstract


Page 51

Endometriosis, a disease affecting approximately 10% of the female population, requires laparoscopy and histologic confirmation of diagnosis. Laparoscopic recognition of endometriosis lesions can be extremely challenging even for the experienced surgeon due to the protean appearances of endometriosis. The visual appearance of what is classically described as pigmented, dark lesions are easily spotted while the non-pigmented, more prevalent white lesions, also known as "subtle" lesions, pose difficulty for recognition. This is due to a wide unrestricted light spectrum, light reflection, and gas pressure used in laparoscopic surgery. Eliminating these optical illusions, Aqua Blue Contrast Technique (ABCT) is a novel revolutionary method that aids the surgeon's eye to recognize subtle peritoneal abnormalities. Distinct morphological features detected with Aqua Blue Contrast Technique is eventually confirmed as inflammation and endometriosis with pathological samples stained with Hemotoxylin and eosin (HE) and by using immunohistochemical staining of CD-10, for which it is often positive for both, with stromal cells alone more commonly found than glands/stroma.
The ABCT easily identifies normal peritoneum and its texture is easily identified. This method assists the surgeon to target the lesion by a clear recognition of subtle peritoneal changes in endometriosis. Assisted by enhancing contrast and eliminating the yellow and red spectrums, the surgeon is now more easily able to perform tedious and precisely accurate excision surgery without unnecessary removal of the normal peritoneum. Aqua Blue Technique not only will improve results for excision surgery, but also opens a future window of understanding and likely will bring a new definition to our aged concepts about endometriosis.

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a…

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.
