Presented in affiliation with the American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) and in cooperation with the AAGL Special Interest Group on Urogynecology/Vaginal Surgery
This course is pending approval for ABOG Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV
This course will provide participants with the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience exploring and dissecting the pelvic anatomy in order to proficiently perform hysterectomies, apical suspensions and other procedures for benign conditions. On cadavers, participants will perform a hysterectomy and identify specific anatomic structures associated with each step of the procedure. They will also dissect the course of the pelvic ureter and lumbar nerve plexus branches, perform midurethral slings and review common sites of injury during gynecologic surgery. Faculty will guide the participants through the pelvic surgical spaces including vesicovaginal, rectovaginal, pararectal, paravesical, retropubic and presacral space and side-wall retroperitoneum.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Recognize the pertinent anatomy related to hysterectomy, apical support procedures and anti-incontinence procedures; 2) demonstrate boundaries and contents of pelvic surgical spaces; and 3) integrate anatomic knowledge with clinical applications during gynecologic procedu
