Advancements in Obstetrics & Gynecology

Posted on 21/05/2024

Is the quality of a woman’s life affected by various gynecological health issues like PCOD, fibroids, pelvic floor prolapse, menstrual disorders and so on? The answer is a definite yes! But the latest technological advancements are playing a huge role in guiding our healthcare practitioners to the cure, often for conditions thought to be incurable.

A technological boom has resulted in new and novel techniques in Obstetrics & Gynecology that improve diagnostics, efficiency, and patient satisfaction. Recent technical breakthroughs in Obstetrics and Gynecology have been aided greatly by advanced imaging technologies, endoscopic equipment, pharmacological treatments, and scientific inventions. Technology is advancing Ob/Gyn, from maintaining electronic medical data to doing minimally invasive surgery.

While most gynecological and obstetrical issues aren't life-threatening, they do have an impact on women's quality of life. It is critical to determine the severity of gynecological disorders and treatment efficacy by assessing the health status measures of women with gynecological diseases. Gynecology treatment options for endometriosis, infertility, fibroids, and pelvic pain are provided using cutting-edge technology.

Artificial Intelligence for Fetal heart monitoring and pregnancy surveillance

Fetal heart rate (FHR) monitoring aids in the monitoring of the fetus and the diagnosis of high-risk problems. It also provides a qualitative and quantitative review of baseline FHR, variability, acceleration, deceleration, uterine contraction intensity, and variations in FHR pattern. AI is currently being utilized to track the FHR rate during labor by studying cardiotocographs and predicting likely outcomes.This technique would help to reduce disparities in intrapartum monitoring interpretation among different obstetricians, resulting in a more consistent and repeatable output for each study and, as a result, a reduction in perinatal and maternal problems and morbidity. Artificial intelligence systems can also give proof in the event of unpredictably negative outcomes that could lead to litigation.

Advancement in Gynaecological Surgeries

Major gynaecological surgery is progressively being replaced with laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery, and robotic surgery, to treat common problems. Technology helps manage Ob/Gyn patients more efficiently with the latest 4k machines for imaging and diagnosis, as well as state-of-the-art instruments for procedures. Surgical staplers and birthing simulators are examples of technological advances that aim to improve surgical procedures by making them more effective and efficient, reducing errors, and improving patient care.

New procedures such as transvaginal ultrasonography and chorionic gonadotrophin concentration levels can assist doctors detect ectopic pregnancy earlier in women, allowing them to be treated as outpatients or with laparoscopic surgery, resulting in a shorter hospital stay. Large uterine fibroids can be treated with uterine artery embolization or gonadotrophin treatment.

Advancement in Ultrasound Technology

Ultrasound is another area where technology has advanced dramatically. The utilization of 3D ultrasound systems, which provide comprehensive images of the uterus and cervix, is now possible thanks to new ultrasound technology. The coronal plane of the uterus is accessible with 3D ultrasound, which is not possible with 2D planes. 3D ultrasound, when combined with improved image clarity, can help gynecologists discover abnormalities that are small or otherwise hidden in 2D imaging.

Gynecologists can use 3D ultrasound for IUD insertion. Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) has grown fivefold in popularity in the last decade, according to Contemporary OB/GYN.

Making 3D ultrasound devices easier to use has been a primary aim for years. The development of portable, convenient systems has been prioritized, making them perfect for independent practices. Transducer technology has also advanced, resulting in crisper visuals and devices that are lighter and more ergonomically constructed, reducing user fatigue.
