Summary by Elisabetta Costantini

During the Surgical videos session two major points were emphasized . The first point arose from Powell’s video, which showed teaching of retropubic midurethral sling procedure on a surgical simulation model. It’s very important, currently, that technological research focuses attention on developing new devices for improving training of surgeons. The second hot point is the importance of developing of new meshes, especially in terms of materials and anchorage. Operating time and the risk of mesh exposition could be reduced, as the UNICAMP video showed, with a single incision approach for anterior and apical vaginal prolapses with contemporary improvement in POP recurrence rate.
