2nd Annual LISEI Advanced Gynecology Postgraduate Course, May 30-31, 2013
Thursday PM and Friday AM Lectures
Lectures plus Lab
The goal of this course is to enhance the gynecologic surgeon’s competence and confidence in the office and operating room. The participants will have exposure to high yield, relevant, and insightful lectures. They will have access to interactive and energetic discussions with expert faculty. There will be hands-on practice and skill building sessions with directed feedback. The cumulative effect of this intensive course will be improved surgical knowledge for management of abnormal uterine bleeding and urinary incontinence to facilitate improved patient outcomes.
Didactic sessions will focus on the fundamentals of advanced gynecologic surgery, instrumentation, and specific operative procedures including slings and endometrial ablations. Current indications and controversies as well as new techniques and technologies will be discussed.
The intensive hands-on inanimate, high-fidelity laboratory experience will concentrate on specific skills and provide each participant with ample opportunity to practice operative procedures. Participants will be able to identify deficiencies in pelvic anatomy, cystoscopy, and advanced hysteroscopic procedures, all under the supervision of faculty skilled in the application of these advanced techniques.
After completion of this one and one half-day course of lectures and hands-on cadaver laboratory, the participants will have:
• Improved their anatomic knowledge and skills in performing hysteroscopic and incontinence procedures.
• Become familiar with best practices for stress urinary incontinence.
• Increased their knowledge and awareness of endometrial ablation and myomectomy principles.
• Increased their knowledge of managing sling complications, including mesh erosion.
• Learned applied techniques for sling placement, cystoscopy, hysteroscopy, endometrial ablation and myomectomy
in a hands-on, faculty-supervised laboratory.
• Improved understanding of appropriate patient selection for optimization of surgical outcomes.
