Once again, we have the great pleasure to invite paediatric urologists and urologists to Aarhus to attend the XXth annual practical course in Robotic/Laparoscopic 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 is aimed at specialists, fellows and urology residents in urology/paediatric urology.
Proctoring and training will focus, mainly on robotic & laparoscopic complications. But is also a practical urologic laparoscopic training course on pigs – something always well received by the participants. We have therefore assembled a renowned and experienced faculty of Scandinavian and European laparoscopists to demon- strate, supervise and lecture on topics including:
• Pathophysiology of laparoscopy • Mechanical and technical complications • Troubleshooting • Haemorrhage • Organ specific injury and lesions • Perioperative complications • Convert vs. continue
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! You will have the option to train on the daVinci S or X model !
The course is now in its twentieth year, and is aimed at paediatric urologists and urologists at any level of training: complications are not only specific to the novice but also overcome to the experts who might become more daring as they expand and push their limits.
There are two types of surgeons – those who have complications.....and the liars!
