This theoretical and cadaveric course is designed for both intermediate and advanced laparoscopic gynecologic surgeons and urogynecologists who want to practice and improve their laparoscopic skills and knowledge of retroperitoneal anatomy.
The course will be composed of 2 full days of combined theoretical lectures on Surgical Anatomy and Pelvic Neuroanatomy with hands on practice of laparoscopic and transvaginal dissection. A third optional dissection-only day, with a new specimen, is offered as well.
On the initial days, particular attention will be given to the survey of the normal pelvic anatomy, anatomic landmarks, dissection of the avascular retroperitoneal spaces and pelvic vessels, nerves, ureter and pelvic floor muscles. Detailed examination and dissection of pelvic nerves and blood vessels will be demonstrated during the course, with the emphasis on preventing vascular complications and avoiding damage to the pelvic nerves.
On the third day of hands-on only practice, attendees will review all the dissection steps learned on the day before and perform laparoscopic or vaginal procedures on the previously dissected cadaver, constantly monitoring the retroperitoneal structures studied.
According to attendee preference, advanced procedures, such as transvaginal sacrospinous fixation, paravaginal repair , laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy, rectosigmoidectomy and pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy will be performed with the objective of raising awareness on the proximity of important structures during our day-to-day procedures.
Special attention will be given to the nerve-sparing techniques during laparoscopic dissection, with demonstration of major nerve pathways to the pelvis.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
