 A must-watch IMA event
Dr KK Aggarwal, National President IMA

The Central Working Committee (CWC) of IMA is meeting today at Hotel The Grand, Vasant Kunj in New Delhi. It is a residential event for members of CWC with a continuous live webcast on IMA website for non CWC members at http://ima-india.org/imalive/. Celebrations of centenary year of medical conferences in India will be observed simultaneously with the 218th CWC Meeting. 
 
One of the issues that will be discussed among other such issues of concern to the medical fraternity is "Is the time ripe to shift from non-violence way of protest?" Drafting of Restoration guidelines is another issue on the agenda.
 
For every 1000 members there is one CWC member elected by the IMA state branch. They form the lower house of IMA and recommends all the policies.  
 
The CWC forms the IMA upper house. Local branches select one CC member for every 100 members. This is the supreme body of IMA.
 
Though policy suggestions can be sent by individual members, it is always better to bring resolutions through the states via state CWC members. All suggestions of states and branches should be routed through CWC.

Endometriosis may cause complications during pregnancy
The disease has symptoms which can be confused with other conditions
 
New Delhi, 22 September 2017: Endometriosis in pregnant women can cause many complications during pregnancy and delivery, including preterm birth and cesarean section. The findings come from a recently conducted study, which also indicates that such women should be closely monitored during the course of their pregnancy for any complications. Endometriosis can cause problems such as inflammation of the endometrium and inhibit the action of progesterone during implantation and throughout the pregnancy, as per the IMA.
 
Endometriosis is a painful condition in which the tissue lining the inside of the uterus, grows outside it. It is estimated to affect about 10% to 15% of the women in the reproductive age. The condition mostly involves the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis; but can spread beyond the pelvic organs as well.
