Abstract

The 1993 membership survey of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists received 938 responses, or 13% of the membership. The surgeons reported performing 22,966 sterilizations and 36,482 diagnostic procedures. The distribution of sterilization techniques has remained stable since 1985. Complication rates associated with diagnostic procedures remain consistently higher than those with sterilizations. One death was reported from sterilization, none for diagnostic procedures.
