Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to introduce the first issue of the “Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association (J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc)” in the publishing year of 2020.

J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc displays articles on ongoing hot topics and treatments related to obstetrics and gynecology. With hundreds of citations per year, J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc’s influence extends to over 2.309 subscribers globally. With over 155 submissions a year from over 20 countries, each issue of J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc includes original clinical research articles, reviews, editorials, quiz and video articles.

Here you may read many good quality manuscripts from all around the world like Mexico, Germany, Iran, Northern Cyprus and India as well as Turkey.

Urinary tract injuries (bladder and ureter) are among the most common complications associated with laparoscopic hysterectomy. All gynecological surgeons should be able to perform diagnostic cystoscopies for evaluating bladder and ureteral integrity. You will read a paper about the use of intravenous sodium fluorescein in the cystoscopic assessment of bladder and ureteral integrity to determine the time of ureteral ejection in patients undergoing laparoscopic hysterectomy.

Tadalafil which is a selective phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitor has a dual function in ischemic and re-perfused tissues, i.e. vasodilatation and anti-oxidant effects. You will also get the occasion to read an interesting paper investigating the dual effect of tadalafil on ischemia and reperfusion injury in the rat ovary.

Pelvic lymphadenectomy is a supplementary part of staging and treatment in gynecologic oncology. You will watch a video which demonstrates a right-side systematic pelvic lymphadenectomy in a cadaveric model.

Dear Reviewers,
