Advanced course on upper tract laparoscopy (UPJ, adrenal and stones)

ESU Course 25

  • Location:
    Room 13a (ICM, Level 1)
  • Chair:
     G. Janetschek, Salzburg (AT)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Surgery of the kidney and adrenal gland by means of laparoscopy is standard of care.
    Approach: Transperitoneal, retroperitoneoscopy, posterior approach, direct approach through the mesentery of the colon. Each has specific advantages.
    Procedures: Virtually all ablative procedures concerning the adrenal, kidney and ureter, but also reconstruction. Rarely but effectively stone surgery.
    Presentation: power-point, interactive, videos, analysis of complications.

    • For surgery of the kidney and adrenal, the da Vinci robot is often overkill. Therefore standard laparoscopy should be mastered in addition.
    • Choice of the perfect approach makes the respective surgery easier and safer.
    • Standard laparoscopy is greatly facilitated by 3D vision.
    • When mastering both laparoscopic surgical skills and the surgical concept of the respective procedure complications can either be avoided or managed appropriately.
