  1. Transperitoneal Laparoscopic Nephrectomy
  2. Retroperitoneal Laparoscopic Nephrectomy
  3. Transperitoneal Laparoscopic/Robotic Partial Nephrectomy
B. Hands-on training (from 9AM to 12PM then from 1PM to 4PM):

Participants will be asked to specify their level of laparoscopic skills as Novice, Intermediate or Advanced during registration. The Hands-on part will include 3 Wet stations (animals) and 2 Dry stations. The participants will be divided in groups of 2 according to their level of experience.

  1. Wet stations in the morning session will accommodate participants with Advanced and Intermediate skills, who will move to the dry stations in the afternoon session
  2. Dry stations in the morning session will accommodate participants with Novice level of skills, who will move to the wet stations in the afternoon session

Objectives of the Workshop

Laproscopic surgery:

Improve the knowledge and skills of the participants in the following areas:

  1. Basic instrumentation for laparoscopic surgery
  2. Port placement and patient positioning
  3. Knowledge of complications and how to avoid them
  4. Laparoscopic dissection and hemostasis
  5. Laparoscopic suturing techniques

Workshop Evaluation

At the end of each day, participants will be asked to submit an evaluation form to each of the sessions. Each theoretical lecture will be evaluated according to Likert scale on its scientific content, audiovisual quality, relevance to subject and clinical applicability. For the Hands-on sessions, evaluations will be based on each tutor on guidance and quality of instructions, the ability to instruct without taking any part of dissection and practical tips and tricks. There will be evaluation of each wet or dry station in terms of availability of instruments, relevance to the workshop objectives and how much benefit the participants think they gained from the workshop.

Participants will be asked how likely they would recommend this course to colleagues and for any suggestions for future workshops.
