Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to introduce the first issue of the “Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association (J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc)” in the publishing year of 2024. This issue is consisted of seven articles, and one review that we hope you will read with interest. Also you may have the opportunity to read the quiz. Here we share some of our favorite articles that were published in this issue of the journal.

Up to 30% of women experience abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB), a common gynecological issue. For women who are able to handle it, office hysteroscopy offers many benefits. By detecting and treating AUB accurately and safely, it spares them from the possible risks associated with general anesthesia and hospital admission. You will have the opportunity to read an article investigating the benefits and viability of “see-and-treat” hysteroscopy using a morcellator without anesthesia in patients with AUB.

The annual reports on assisted reproductive technology (ART) aid in the provision of reliable and aggregated data to support healthcare policy, allow for the computation of related expenses, ease the development and accessibility of treatment, and improve the standard of care rendered. You will read a multicenter descriptive survey, describing the clinical outcomes of ART cycles in Turkey in 2019 as well as the distribution of demographic characteristics through aggregated, anonymized data.

You will also have the opportunity to read a review investigating abnormal coiling of the cord and associations of abnormal coiling with various pregnancy factors

I would also like to invite you to join us for our “Symposium on Current Approaches in Obstetrics and Gynecology”, which will be held in İstanbul on May 31-June 1 2024. The scientific programme of the symposium includes many distinguished scientists and researchers both from Turkey and Europe.
