Location:Room 13a (ICM, Level 1)
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.
