Day 2: Monday, November 12 2018
7:00 am – 11:00 am
Andrew I. Brill, Lori L. Warren
Sangeeta Senapati, S. Sony Singh
Embracing the inseparable linkage between anatomy and tissue dissection, this course will enable the novice and experienced laparoscopic surgeon to implement key principles for both mechanical and energy-based surgery. This will allow the surgeon to optimize both tissue and procedural outcomes during a number of fundamental laparoscopic procedures including complex adhesiolysis, resection of deep and ovarian endometriosis, laparoscopic hysterectomy, sacrocolpopexy, and myomectomy. By using instructional videos of exemplary procedures, the didactics will focus on learnable methods that can collectively reduce bleeding, minimize adhesion formation, limit unwanted thermal damage, and decrease the risk of visceral or vascular insult.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Integrate methods to reduce unwanted thermal damage; 2) list anatomical techniques that maximize hemostatic dissection; and 3) comprehend surgical methods to reduce adhesion formation.
