MET in Gynecological Laparoscopic Oncology


MET in Gynecological Laparoscopic Oncology

Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli Largo Agostino Gemelli, 8
00168 Rome

Laparoscopic techniques are becoming more and more interesting for gynecologist surgeons, and laparoscopy is emerging as the gold-standard approach for many procedures according to the many hundreds of randomized studies. Our vision is that laparoscopy should be part of the basic knowledge of a modern gynecologist in addition to a thorough knowledge of high-tech laparoscopic instrumentation, which is quickly evolving and requires a specific learning path.

Moreover, although many principles of open surgery may be applied, performing laparoscopic procedures requires special skills. Thus, didactic, practical courses represent the most valuable tool to reduce the time of apprenticeship, learn the different surgical techniques, develop the necessary psychomotor abilities, and become comfortable with the equipment. The main goal of the Medical Expert Training is to provide the participants with the required knowledge of laparoscopy and psychomotor skills as well as practice the procedure on pelvic trainers and in the wet-lab enviroment in order to apply the learned techniques to live surgery.

The didactic session is aimed at the acquisition and improvement of the endoscopic techniques for dissection and suturing. Moreover, the main steps of each gynecological operation are described. Short videos of different laparoscopic operations are an integral part of the Medical Expert Training. The practical session consists of two sessions on pelvic trainers and training in the wet-lab environment during the first two days. The third day will be dedicated to live surgery. Several kinds of operations are performed on experimental models. Special attention is paid both to dissection techniques and laparoscopic suturing, which is particularly difficult for surgeons new to this type of procedure. It is possible to include advanced training courses that focus exclusively on suturing techniques.
