Paediatric Minimally Invasive Surgery and Urology Course Day 1

Monday 23 August 2021 08:30 - 17:00



The minimally invasive approach is becoming the standard for a growing number of procedures in all fields of paediatric surgery. This two-day course, organised for the third time after the success of recent years, allows surgeons of all levels to benefit from this formal theoretical teaching, but also and most importantly to have the opportunity to exercise on a wide range of carefully selected models, while exchanging and discussing operative techniques with internationally recognized experts. We are happy to offer you the opportunity to train on the avian model which we developped for neonatal MIS training, and published recently. (Zimmermann, P., Wiseman, A.X., Sanchez, O. et al. The avian model: a novel and cost-effective animal tissue model for training in neonatal laparoscopic surgery. J Ped Endosc Surg 1, 99–105 (2019). https://doi.org/10.1007/s42804-019-00027-8)

Day 1 -  Basic course

Aimed at junior trainees, the first day of the course is offering up to date teaching by experts on the physiological particularities of laparoscopy in children, pain management, but also technical aspects covering from the fine tunings of the stack to the basics of laparoscopy ergonomics. This theoretical introduction will be followed by a whole half-day of hands-on exercices with a view to improving laparoscopic knotting, suturing and dissection, with the help of animal models.
