Clinical (Gynaecologists, Urologists, Colorectal Surgeons and Neurologists) and basic scientists interested at understanding the pathophysiology, clinical features and the therapeutic options of intrapelvic nerve entrapments.

Intrapelvic nerve entrapment is a probably underestimated source of pelvic and perineal pain. This workshop is directed to both clinicians and basic scientists interested at understanding the pathophysiology, clinical features and the therapeutic options of intrapelvic nerve entrapments, as well as discussing possible areas for research and perspectives.
The program starts with a review of the normal pelvic neuroanatomy through real surgery laparoscopic dissections and the neurophysiological aspects of these structures. After this introduction, the clinical features of nerve entrapment syndromes will be explained, followed by the cellular and molecular basis for these symptoms.
On the second half of the workshop, medical treatment guidel
