The purpose of this website is to provide information to clinicians regarding the early management of molar pregnancies/trophoblastic disease and the registration of patients with the National Gestational Trophoblastic Disease (GTD) Treatment and Advisory Centre at CUMH. With the support of NCCP and the HSE we have published our national guidelines on the management of trophoblastic disease and these guidelines are in this section of the website. We have also included some "helpful hints" for clinicians regarding the initial management of patients with complete and partial moles and suggestions as to how these patients could be counselled regarding their diagnosis.

Our role at the GTD centre is to help monitor the follow up and make treatment decisions for patients with trophoblastic disease. Any patient that you register with us will be contacted by our clinical nurse specialist and the follow up protocol will be discussed. The registration form is available on this page for download. The registration form should be filled out in full and signed by the patient who consents to their data being stored on our database at our office in CUMH. The completed registration form should be faxed to our GTD office (the fax number is on the form). The registration form will not be accepted without a copy of the histopathology report. 

If you wish to ask advice about any patient with GTD or give us feedback on the website we are happy to receive an email at gtd@hse.ie
