2nd International School of Surgical Anatomy (ISSA) Course
Following the principles taught in the International School of Surgical Anatomy (ISSA), this hands-on cadaveric course will provide a step-by-step surgical approach to the pelvic viscera, retroperitoneal avascular spaces, and pelvic ureters. Emphasis will be on identifying anatomical landmarks, including surgical principles and techniques. We will highlight techniques for gentle tissue handling to avoid bleeding, proper traction, counter-traction, and sharp and blunt dissections while preventing vascular, urinary, bowel, and nervous system complications. Special care will be given to nerve-sparing techniques during laparoscopic dissection, with demonstration of main pathways of visceral and somatic pelvic innervation. This course includes laparoscopic cadaveric simulation.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Recognize the anatomical landmarks and major pelvic structures pertinent to gynecologic laparoscopy and retroperitoneal dissection; 2) apply laparoscopic surgical techniques to enter the avascular spaces of the pelvis, exposing the parametrial ligaments, nerves, and pelvic vasculature, and their relations to the ureter and intraperitoneal structures; and 3) illustrate the step-by step dissection of the pelvic ureter and pelvic nerves related to the different gynecological procedures and nerve-sparing techniques for gynecologic cancers and endometriosis surgery.
