Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to introduce the final issue of the “Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association (J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc)” in the publishing year of 2021. This issue is consisted of seven articles and two reviews that we hope you will read with interest. Visually appealing and informative figures are an essential part of scientific publication. You will read articles with eye-catching figures. Also you may have the oppurtunity to watch all of the latest videos here (http://www.jtgga.org/video).

Here we share some of our favorite articles that were published in this issue of the journal.

There is much evidence that oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia.

You will read an article investigating the association between the SOD1 (Ins/Del) polymorphism and the risk of preeclampsia. You will also read an interesting study which developed an updated model to predict the risk of recurrence, based on the number of adverse pathologic features in women with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage I uterine endometrioid carcinoma, who did not undergo any adjuvant treatment.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with long-term health problems such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular risk factors in reproductive age women. You will get the occasion to read the current situation of changes and comorbidities after reproductive age in patients with PCOS in the light of the latest evidence.

We would also like to remind you that time is rapidly approaching to our prestigious 14th Turkish-German Gynecology Congress which will be held in Antalya between May 28 and June 1 of 2022. As of before, our congress will be held to the highest scientific standards and we are working round the clock to optimize our traditionalized congress. At this year’s congress we will be having lectures with the world’s most reputable speakers; Prof. Jan Deprest (Fetal Medicine: In utero spina bifida repair), Prof. Thomas Ebner (Artificial reduction of the blastocoel before vitrification), Prof. Kutluk Oktay (Fertility preservation for ovarian insufficiency), Prof. Wolfgang Holzgreve (Non-invasive prenatal testing).
