“Cinderella’s Disease” received recognition from the international community
The annual XXIV Congress of the European Society of Gynecological Oncology ESGO-2023 was held in Istanbul with a large sold-out crowd. It brings together more than 2.5 thousand specialists from all over the world and celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
The Congress brought together 2,400 participants in a hybrid format, and invited 100 world oncology stars to give presentations on its panels in 50 thematic sections. The Russian Federation was represented by a large delegation of specialists from many reputable medical specialized centers, including the National Medical Research Radiological Centre of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
The team of doctors of our Center brought a poster (electronic) presentation on a functionally sparing approach to the treatment of cervical cancer, in which the authors focused on the importance of an interdisciplinary approach in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of lower urinary tract dysfunction.
One of the most important results of the meeting was the accepted recommendations for the classification of endometrial cancer, which combined pathomorphological and molecular biological criteria.
14 years of fruitful scientific research by an international group of scientists led to the creation of a new classification, called “FIGO 2023: endometrial cancer”. Its use will allow specialists from different countries to clarify the diagnosis of this disease at the diagnostic stage, based on a combination of end-to-end indicators of two research systems.
– On the sidelines of the congress, this disease was called “Cinderella’s Disease, – shared a congress participant, MD. Svetlana Mukhtarulina, head of the department of gynecological oncology at the Scientific Research Institute of Urology and Interventional Radiology – branch of the Federal State Budgetary Institution of the “National Medical Research Radiological Centre” of the Ministry of Health, – because for many years it was not given due importance, and now in Istanbul, they have finally put a logical end to long-term discussions and research.

Congress participants discussed in more than 50 thematic sections, developing common approaches to the treatment of cancer of the female genital area with a variety of methods and technical means in each country.
