Special Interest Group on Urogynecology/Vaginal Surgery
This practical, case-based course is designed for the benign gynecologic surgeon who wish to advance their knowledge in surgical pelvic anatomy, pre-operative case selection, surgical decision-making, and reducing complications during pelvic floor and vaginal surgery. Faculty will discuss pertinent factors to consider when recommending surgical treatment interventions for uterine prolapse that optimizes individual benefit and minimizes risk. This course will focus on reducing surgical complications during vulvar and vaginal surgery, apical suspension at the time of hysterectomy, intra-operative tips and tricks and post-operative management that surgeons can immediately implement into their clinical practice.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Identify key anatomy for pelvic reconstructive surgery; 2) discuss techniques to suspend the vaginal apex at time of hysterectomy; and 3) assess pre-operative case selection for native tissue vaginal repair versus sacral colpopexy.
