Dear friends and colleagues
Once again, we have the great pleasure to invite paediatric urologists and urologists to Aarhus to attend the XVIIIth annual practical course in Laparoscopic/Robotic Urology. As in previous years, we will focus on complications. Laparoscopy is no longer in its infancy and with its dissemination into the realm of the conventional,
it is now time to address some of the unintended consequences: complications!
The course addresses both specialists, fellows in urology/paediatric urology and residents in training.
In Robotics complications are basically the same – although with some different technical issues.
Baring this in mind, our proctoring and training will mainly focus on laparoscopic/ robotic complications. The course will also concentrate on practical, urologic, laparoscopic training on pigs – something always well received by the participants. We have assembled a renowned and experienced faculty of Scandinavian and European laparoscopists to demonstrate, supervise and lecture on topics including:
All backed up by real-time animal lab-simulated catastrophes and clinical scenarios where possible.
Trainees will also get the chance to brush up on their general urological laparoscopic skills, including black box training, trans/retroperitoneal access to the kidneys, ureter, intracorporeal suturing techniques, pyeloplasty, Fowler-Stephens procedure for non-palpable testis and heminephrectomy/partial nephrectomy. The number of participants in the animal lab is limited to 18, with 2- 3 participants per pig.
Be aware: This is a practical course with at least 14 hours of hands-on-training!
Patho-physiology of laparoscopy Mechanical and technical complications Troubleshooting
Organ specific injury and lesions Perioperative complications
Convert vs. continue
The course is now in its eighteenth year, and is aimed at paediatric urologist and urologists at any level of training: complications are not only specific to the novice but also occur to the expert who might become more daring and expands his/hers territory, pushing the limits.
There are two types of surgeons – those who have complications.....and the liars!
As something special this year, Aarhus is the 2017 European Capital of Culture,
offering a wide array of cultural events and exhibitions. The course coincides with
the last days of one og the major events: The AroS triennale: The Garden – End of times, beginning of times. This is a huge scaled exhibition, starting indoors at the
ARoS Art Museum and continuing along four kilometers of coastline
to the forest south of the city. The full program for the cultural events can be found at the website aarhus2017.dk We look forward to seeing you in Aarhus.
