XXIVth Practical Course in Robotic & Laparoscopic Urology & Paediatric Urology
From Wednesday 28 August 2024
To Friday 30 August 2024

Dear friends and colleagues

SAMIS 2023 POSTEROnce again, we have the great pleasure to invite urologists and paediatric urologists to Aarhus to attend the XXIIIrd annual practical course in Robotic/Laparoscopic Urology. As in previous years, we will focus on complications. Laparoscopy and robotics are no longer in their infancy and with its dissemination into the realm of the conventional, it is now time to address some of the unintended consequences: Complications!

The course addresses both specialists, fellows in urology/paediatric urology/surgery and residents in training.

Proctoring and training will focus, mainly on robotic & laparoscopic complications. It is also a practical urologic laparoscopic training course on pigs – something always well received by the participants. We have assembled a renowned and experienced faculty of Scandinavian and European laparoscopists to demonstrate, supervise and lecture on topics including:

  • Patho-/physiology of laparoscopy
  • Mechanical and technical complications
  • Troubleshooting
  • Haemorrhage
  • Organ specific injury and lesions
  • Perioperative complications
  • Convert vs. continue

All backed up by real-time animal lab-simulated catastrophes and clinical scenarios where possible.
Participants will get the chance to brush up on their urological laparoscopic skills, including black box training, trans-/retroperitoneal access to the kidneys, ureter, intracorporeal suturing techniques, pyeloplasty, Fowler-Stephens procedure for non-palpable testis and heminephrectomy/partial nephrectomy. The number of participants in the animal lab is limited to 18, with 2 (-3) participants and one faculty member per pig.

Be aware: This is a practical course with at least 14 hours of hands-on-training! You will have the option to train on the daVinci X™ model and simulator training on Medtronic’s HUGO™
