On December, 8-10 2014 the Center of Surgical Innovation held another intensive improvement course in laparoscopic gynecology. The surgeons from Kiev, Chernovtsy, Lvov and Kalysh participated in a three-day course.
The first day program included hearing subject lectures and training on laparoscopic simulators to practise manual skills under the guidance of the specialists.
During the second day the doctors practised in the Experimental department of the National Institute of Surgery and Transplantology after A. Shalimov. The surgeons-gynecologists trained their operation skills on biological material (laboratory swine). They considered rules for working with laparoscopic devices, techniques for setting ports, placing trocars, working with ultrasonic scissors, argon plasma coagulation, surgical interventions (cholecystectomy, nephrectomy, bowel resection). It was important to discuss the prevention of possible mistakes in laparoscopy and surgical safety.
During the last day the participants of the course were given the opportunity to assist Professor I.Gladchiuk in surgical intervention. The surgery being completed, the professor thanked his colleagues for cooperation.
The 2015 course schedule will be published on the web-site of the Center by the end of this year.
