    Laparoscopic Anatomy & Pelvic Demonstration (Lap-Demo) Workshop

    Course Description

    The AGES Laparoscopic Anatomy & Pelvic Demonstration Workshop is suitable for all levels of RANZCOG trainees and specialists.

    It is a single day, intensive, pelvic anatomy primer, for those wishing to expand their knowledge of what lies beneath the pelvic and abdominal peritoneum.

    AGES aims to allow access to quality anatomy teaching by providing a number of courses that focus on a functional laparoscopic approach to pelvic anatomy. The demonstration course allows for thirty registrants to participate in lectures, watch live surgery, and interact with highly skilled laparoscopic surgeons as they delve into the anatomical aspects of the female pelvis.

    The dissection is performed on female fresh frozen donors at the Medical Engineering and Research Facility (MERF), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) facility in Brisbane.

    Highly interactive presentations are followed by the relevant focussed dissections. These being performed on six compartments of the pelvis and abdomen.

    All participants will be provided with pre-reading and copies of the presentations a week prior to the workshop.

    Registrants can expect to increase their anatomical knowledge and awareness allowing for improved surgical confidence and outcomes and reduced complications for their patients.

    Lap-Demo Course Objectives

    Facilitate the deeper understanding of female pelvic anatomy and laparoscopic surgical dissection.

    Lap-Demo Learning Outcomes

    1. Enhance knowledge of the anatomy of the female pelvis in relation to laparoscopic surgery with an emphasis on pelvic avascular spaces, pelvic nerve identification, and sparing
    2. Develop an understanding of laparoscopic dissection techniques with an emphasis on ureterolysis and access to the avascular spaces and planes
    3. Appreciate that the acquisition of anatomical knowledge and dissection techniques improves surgical procedures and is a career-long process
