Event Details

The Paediatric Urology Laparoscopy Course (PULC) is an innovative two-day webcast offering surgical trainees and experienced physicians the unique opportunity to learn the latest in minimally invasive surgical techniques in children from leading experts in the field.

The Paediatric Urology Laparoscopy Course provides learners with exposure to new technology and systems for urology surgery via didactic lectures, interactive learning activities, and dry-labs utilizing lap-trainers. Participants will enjoy live lab-based surgical demonstrations on the second day of the webcast. The didactic sessions address all different aspects of minimally invasive surgery with focus on theoretical knowledge and emphasis on paediatric physiology and child-specific factors such as intracorporeal and extracorporeal spaces, consideration in ports placement, ergonomics, energy sources and equipment/ instrumentation. Emphasis will also be placed on providing learners with content related to complications in paediatric laparoscopic patients and complex laparoscopic techniques. Participants will be assessed via pre- and post-testing on the first day of the webcast.

Day 1: August 7th, 2015 - Expert lecture sessions and Interactive dry lab

Day 2: August 8th, 2015 - Live lab-based surgical demonstration
