Research interests

Translational research regarding the pathophysiology of the endometrial arrest in amenorrhoeic patients with Asherman Syndrom.  We are planning to start an international consortium in collaboration with Prof. M.H Emanuel (UMCU and UZ Gent), Prof S. Weyers (UZ Gent), Prof J. Clark (gynaecologist, Birmingham Women’s Hospital & University Hospital, Bimingham), Prof H. Bos (CCU, UMCU) and Prof. B. van Rijn (UMCU).

In collaboration with Prof H. Bos we will use the organoid culture system developed by Prof. H. Clevers as a model system to study regulation of the endometrium.

Clinical studies focusing on uterine pathology related to obstetrical complications and fetal outcome:

Abnormal placentation, Premature delivery and Haemorrhagia post partum after Asherman Syndrom.

Treatment of uterine fibroids in women who wish to conceive.

Prevention and treatment of Cesarean Scar Defects to prevent premature delivery.

Closure and repair of Cesarean Scars (Barbed Suturing, laparoscopic and hysteroscopic repair of niches).
