Décés de Mme Margarida Moreira

Margarida Moreira, 1938-2014, nous a quittés de façon brutale et inattendue le 29 janvier 2014.

Récemment élue trésorière de la Société Européenne de Gynécologie (Septembre 2013) elle a été notre trésorière-adjointe pendant les trois ans précédents (2010-2013).

Sa formation d’ Endocrinologue, et son intêret particulier pour l'Endocrinologie de la Reproduction Humaine, l’a amenée en France en 1971 pour faire une spécialisation à la Fondation de la Recherche en Hormonologie à Fresnes (Paris). De retour au Portugal, Margarida a été responsable du laboratoire d’Hormonologie de la Faculté de Médecine de Coimbra, jusqu'à sa retraite.

Son désir d'apprendre a culminé avec l’obtention du Diplôme d' Études Universitaires en Endocrinologie Moléculaire de l'Université de Montpellier, après sa soutenance de Diplôme sur « Les aspects moléculaires de la ménopause précoce ».

Margarida Moreira a toujours participé très activement aux réunions de la Société Européenne de Gynécologie depuis sa création, ayant fait partie du comité d'organisation du 1er Congrès de notre Société qui s'est déroulé au Portugal (3-5 Novembre 1995) et aussi de ceux des Journées Albert NETTER qui ont eu lieu au Portugal (Coimbra en 2002 et Algarve en 2008) . Margarida a aussi eu une participation très active à toutes les réunions de la SEG et a également eu une présence constante durant les Journées Européennes de la Société Française de Gynécologie. Son travail intense et le dévouement aux laboratoire d’Endocrinologie expliquent les fonctions qu’elle a eues en tant que membre du conseil d'administration de ACORATA (Commission de Radioanalyse et Techniques Associées ) ayant aussi été la personne en charge de Corata au Portugal et la responsable de deux réunions internationales de cette société scientifique au Portugal ( II Symposium ACORATA sur la relation entre le laboratoire d'analyse et de la clinique, Caldas da Felgueira, 19 et 20 mai 2005 et le troisième symposium sur la relation entre le laboratoire d'analyse et la clinique, Figueira da Foz , 17 au 19 mai , 2007) .

Margarida Moreira était membre de plusieures Sociétés et Associations scientifiques et professionnelles : Société française d'Endocrinologie, Société Française de Biologie Clinique, ACORATA (Membre du Conseil d'administration) et en charge de la Corata au Portugal, Société Portugaise d'Endocrinologie , Société Portugaise de Diabètologie , l'Association Portugaise de Diagnostic Prénatal .

EMA press release

Dear colleagues and friends,

I invite you to read the reassuring press release of the European Medicines Agency ( EMA) (October 11, 2013) . This opinion of the EMA is important to know and make known to the doctors, midwives and pharmacists , as well as for users of combined hormonal contraceptives.

EMA’s statements confirm that taking into account the reevaluation of the risk of VTE and ATE of estroprogestative contraceptives , the benefits of these contraceptives continue to exceed their risks.

This is at the request of France that the PRAC (EMA 's Phamaco -vigilance Risk Assessement Committee) took up this reevaluation . Confidently expect notice of the CHMP (Committee for Medical Products ) meeting in November 2013 and the final opinion of the EMA on the thromboembolic risk contraceptives EP.

Look especially forward the reaction of the French health authorities.

Dr. David SERFATY
President of FSG

Welcome message to Pr. Andréa GENAZZANI, the new President of the European Society of Gynecology

Dear Friends and Collegues,

As President of the European Society of Gynecology (ESG), it is an honor for me to follow Prof. David Serfaty.

The Society, after the success of our last Congress in Copenhagen, is now ready to increase its visibility and presence all around Europe in collaboration with the National Societies of Gynecology and Obstetrics.

In our next Congress, the 10th Congress of the European Society of Gynecology, chaired by Prof. J.M. Foidart, which will be held in the magnificent scenario of Bruxelles from 18th to 21st September 2013 at the Square Meeting Centre, we will reconfirm our engagement in the development of the discipline in the various chapters of basic science and clinical aspects of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

The role of the European Society of Gynecology for the development of our daily practice to improve the women health and the obstetric care all around Europe, will be reconfirmed non only by our congress, but also by the organization of the Albert Netter days of the European Society of Gynecology which will be held in Capri 09th -11th October 2014

In Bruxelles we will have the General Assembly of the ESG, where all of you are invited to discuss and to offer proposals for the development of our Society and for the improvement of the Gynecology and Obstetrics care all around Europe.

European Medicines Agency starts safety review of Diane 35 and its generics

The European Medicines Agency’s Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) formally started a safety review of Diane 35 (cyproterone acetate 2 mg, ethinylestradiol 35μg), associated names and its generics at its 4-7 February 2013 meeting.

European Medicines Agency starts safety review of Combined hormonal contraceptives containing chlormadinone, desogestrel, dienogest, drospirenone, etonogestrel, gestodene, nomegestrol, norelgestromin or norgestimate

Following the meeting of the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC), the European Medicines Agency has started two safety reviews:

Combined hormonal contraceptives containing chlormadinone, desogestrel, dienogest, drospirenone, etonogestrel, gestodene, nomegestrol, norelgestromin or norgestimate

The review of these contraceptives was requested by the French medicines agency ANSM following concerns in France about the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE or blood clots in veins). The EMA will now review all available data on the risk of VTE with these contraceptives and issue an opinion on whether any changes are needed to their prescribing advice across the EU.

No.1 Newsletter of the ESG

Dear colleagues,
Dear Friends,
Here is the first edition of the European Society of Gynecology’s newsletter.
Thanks to the involvement of the office’s members and to the ESG board, I would like this newsletter to become not only a link between the ESG’s managers but foremost, a link between all of the ESG’s members.
This newsletter will keep you updated of the several conferences in which the ESG has taken part of. Also, the doctors Anne Grimard, Margarida Moreira and Ulysse Gaspard made a call to the member’s contribution.
The next editions will most likely talk about the excellent assessment of the ESG’s 9th congress in Copenhagen organized by Sven Olaf Skouby and by the ICS.
In the last place, this newsletter could give some professional and scientific information “flash” related to the gynecologic field.
I wish a long life and success to the ESG’s newsletter and thank those who’ll pass it through.

Dr David Serfaty
European Society Of Gynecology President

The Outcome of 770 PIP Breast Implants

Reports of an unexpectedly high early rupture rate and the use of an inappropriate gel resulted in the Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) breast implants being recalled in 2010. This medical crisis subsequently developed into an international public and political crisis. Over 500,000 PIP implants were inserted worldwide:> 45,000 in the UK, >30,000 in France.
