The course is recognised by ICS.

This Masterclass has been designed for clinicians and surgeons wanting to advance their knowledge on the surgical skills in female pelvic anatomy, as well as surgical treatment of female stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse repair.

A large proportion of the course is hands on in the cadaver lab, where you will be able to:

Refresh your knowledge of female pelvic anatomy

Identify key anatomical landmarks

Practice the incontinence and prolapse procedures from start to finish

Post procedure dissection – to review accuracy

Ask anatomical or surgical “hands on” related questions

The didactic sessions will cover the following topics:

Recently published reports on prolapse and stress urinary incontinence surgical procedures
The published scientific evidence on the safety, short and long term efficacy of the mesh augmented prolapse repair and different surgical treatments of stress urinary incontinence.

How to avoid surgical complications

For this session, cadaveric prosections, video clip of different surgical procedures will also be used.

The practical sessions will include “hands on” fresh frozen cadavers and silicone pelvis mannequins/simulators covering the surgical techniques as well as technical tricks for various anti-incontinence and reconstructive vaginal surgical procedures. Delegates will be instructed and guided through the surgical steps how to perform all the mid-urethral sling approaches (retropubic top-bottom, bottom-top, transobturator, mini-sling), transvaginal reconstructive pelvis surgery and how to avoid/manage surgically mesh related complications.
