This course has been approved for ABOG Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV


This course will be presented in Spanish (and English) and will introduce basic and advanced suture techniques using pelvic trainers. International faculty will present techniques on needle manipulation and reapproximate tissues from trocars located in different laparoscopic positions. Attendees will be taught extracorporeal and intracorporeal knot tying and continuous suture techniques as well as their clinical applications in closing the vaginal vault, myomectomy, suspension of the vaginal vault, cystotomy repair and other applications. Different suture devices and materials, including barbed suturing will be compared and discussed. In this interactive environment, the participants will have the opportunity to work with industry standard devices and apply the acquired knowledge into their professional practice.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Efficiently reproduce laparoscopic techniques for tissue reapproximation, needle manipulation and continuous sutures; 2) perform efficient intra and extracorporeal knots, identifying common errors that occur, and how to correct them; and 3) compare and distinguish the potential benefits of the technologies of barbed suture and suture devices used in laparoscopy and review the clinical applications for the closure of the vaginal vault, suspension of the vaginal vault, myomectomy and repair of cystotomy.
