George Condous is Head of Department of Gynaecology and Consultant Gynaecologist at Nepean Hospital, Sydney. He is also Head of Discipline of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Sydney Medical School Nepean, University of Sydney. He is a specialist with an interest in Gynaecological Ultrasound and Advanced Endosurgery. He set up the first and only Acute Gynaecology Unit to date in Australia which utilizes ultrasound at the first point of contact for women with emergency gynaecological as well as early pregnancy complications (miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy). He performs Advanced Endosurgery procedures for women who need intervention for pelvic masses, adnexal pathology, stage IV endometriosis and/or hysterectomy. He works in a multidisciplinary team at the SAN Hospital with Dr Walid Barto, who is one of the local Colorectal Surgeons. Together they perform Joint Laparoscopic Surgery on women with the most severe forms of bowel endometriosis. He runs the LaSGeG laparoscopic courses through the SAN Hospital teaching O&G Specialists and trainees laparoscopic surgery. Having completed his undergraduate degree with the University of Adelaide, he left Australia in 1993 and moved to London where he completed his training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. From 2001 - 2003 he worked as a Senior Research Fellow at St George's Hospital, London. At St George's he set up the Acute Gynaecology Unit, the first in the United Kingdom. It was also during this time that he developed his great interest in Early Pregnancy and especially the management of pregnancies of unknown location (PULs). He has developed many mathematical models for the prediction of outcome of PULs which were the subject of his Doctorate of Medicine with the University of London. In 2005, he returned to Australia where he completed his Laparoscopic Fellowship at the Centre for Advanced Reproductive Endosurgery, Royal North Shore, Sydney. He was appointed as a Consultant Gynaecologist and Senior Lecturer at Nepean Hospital in 2006 and soon was made Associate Professor. In 2010, he was made Departmental Head of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Nepean Hospital. He obtained the MRCOG in 1999 and was made FRANZCOG in 2005. In 2009, he was awarded his Doctorate in Medicine (MD), University of London, for his thesis entitled: "The management of pregnancies of unknown location and the development of new mathematical models to predict outcome". He is the Editor-in-Chief for the Australasian Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine (AJUM), as well as President-elect for the Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM). He is on the Scientific Committee for the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ISUOG) meeting in Rome 2016 as well as invited faculty at this year¿s ISUOG meeting. He has edited three books including the "Handbook of Early Pregnancy Care", published over 170 papers in international journals and is internationally renowned for his work in early pregnancy and more recently endometriosis. His current research interests relate to the management of ectopic pregnancy, PULs and miscarriage, as well as the use of transvaginal ultrasound, and in particular sonovaginography, to predict posterior compartment endometriosis. He is the lead investigator for the International Deep Endometriosis Analysis (IDEA) group having just published the manuscript entitled: ¿Systematic approach to evaluation of the pelvis in women with suspected endometriosis, including terms, definitions and measurements to describe sonographic features of endometriosis: a consensus opinion from the International Deep Endometriosis Analysis (IDEA) group¿.

Research interests

George Condous is an Academic Gynaecologist with special interests in advanced gynaecological ultrasound and advanced laparoscopic surgery.

His research themes include early pregnancy complications and diagnosis of endometriosis.

Early pregnancy themes include the ultrasound morphology of tubal ectopic pregnancy and its impact on non-surgical interventions, mathematical modelling to rationalise the follow up of women withpregnancy of unknown location (PUL), prediction risk model to predict miscarriage in women who present with a viable pregnancy at the first early pregnancy ultrasound.

Research has shown that women with an incomplete miscarriage are most suitable for expectant management. These are women who do not have a well-defined gestation sac, but still have retained products of conception (RPOC). A recent study using a power Doppler color scoring (PDCS) system has found that an absence of vascularization of the RPC (Denoted by a score of 1) predicted higher spontaneous resolutions by expectant management than the presence of vascularization (scores 2-4). However, color scoring is subjective; no research has been done to study the reproducibility of the PDCS system. By analyzing the inter- and intra-observer reproducibility of the PDCS system, it is hoped that this diagnostic tool would allow for more conservative and effective management decision making for women who suffer an incomplete miscarriage in their first trimester.

Single dose intramuscular methotrexate is commonly used in the medical management of ectopic pregnancy and significantly increases the rate of resolution without the need for surgery. A 15% fall in bhCG between Day 4 and 7 has been validated as a good indicator of the likely success of methotrexate in avoiding surgery. As such, most institutions have implemented a monitoring regimen where bhCG is monitored at days 1 (day of methotrexate administration), 4 and 7. A fall of less than 15% between Day 4 and 7, necessitates the administration of a second dose of methotrexate with weekly bhCG thereafter until efficacy is confirmed. Recent research suggests bhCG testing at day 1 and 7 is equal in its prediction of women requiring a second dose of methotrexate, obviating the need for bhCG testing on day 4. We aim tovalidate this finding usingdata collected through the early pregnancy unit at Nepean Hospital. Additionally, we will look at the pre-treatment hCG ratio (hCG 48 hrs/hCG 0 hrs) in women with an ectopic pregnancy managed non-surgically.

Spontaneous miscarriage in the first trimester accounts for 10 – 20% of pregnancies. However, not all of these are first defined as viable pregnancies through transvaginal sonography. The rate of subsequent miscarriage during the first trimester in pregnancies where viability is demonstrated is between 2 and 16%. Previous models to determine a viable pregnancies risk of miscarriage in the first trimester have been developed by Oates et al. and then refined further by Stamatopoulos et al.This project aims to look at the model proposed by Stamatopoulos et al. and to see how it works in a clinical setting across several sites. The aim of this is to confirm the accuracy of the model, and to see how this data can help patients, and assist patient care. Our overall aim is to reduce the negative psychological effects associated with miscarriage by creating an early warning system for women.

The Ultrasound Based Endometriosis Staging System (UBESS) was developed as a preoperative triaging tool to predict thecomplexity of subsequent laparoscopic surgery in women with suspected endometriosis. The staging system employs the Society of Reproductive Surgeons recommendations on laparoscopic procedures and the necessary skill required. These recommendations divide surgical skill into 3 categories, which are recognised in both the United States (US) and the United Kingdom (UK). Similarly, the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) and the Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy and Surgery Society (AGES) have released guidelines for the skill level required to perform certain laparoscopic surgeries. These guidelines stratify procedures and associated skills required into 6 levels. The aim of this project is to standardise the UBESS to the laparoscopy guidelines released by RANZCOG and AGES. In the future, this project may allow for external validation of the UBESS. Implementation of UBESS in the diagnosis and management of endometriosis could potentially reduce the number of procedures that patients undergo and significantly reduce risk. It would ensure that each surgical case would be managed by surgeon with the appropriate skill level.

Obliteration of the pouch of Douglas (POD) can be due to concurrentdeep infiltrating endometriosis of the rectum and rectosigmoid. Often, the primary laparoscopy is performed by a general gynaecological laparoscopic surgeon who does not necessarily have the surgical skills to effectively remove severe endometriosis. This leads to the patient having potentially more than one laparoscopy with all the associated morbidities. The efficacy of transvaginal ultrasound scan in diagnosing POD obliterationis well established. To date however there are no data assessing the performance of general gynaecological surgeons versus advanced laparoscopic surgeons in predicting POD obliteration at the time of laparoscopy. Furthermore, if transvaginal ultrasound scan is found to be superior than laparoscopic diagnosis of POD obliteration, then unnecessary laparoscopic surgeries can be avoided. This study aims to discover whether ultrasound in experienced hands is comparable to laparoscopy (both at the general and the expert laparoscopic level) at predicting obliteration of the POD.

A/Professor Condous currently supervises two fellows, each on a 2 year program, through Sydney Medical School Nepean. Dr Shannon Reid recently completed her PhD through the University of Sydney in the use of ultrasound to predict endometriosis. Dr Babak Shakeri will commence his PhD through the University of Sydney on the external validation of the UBESS to predict complexity of subsequent laparoscopic surgery.

Teaching and supervision

He currently supervises 5 MD students whose projects include early pegnancy complications and the use of ultrasound in women with endometriosis.
