Participants from various countries took part in the Courses offered at the Surgical Learning Area at UEG Week 2017 in Barcelona.
Three different courses were offered for the participants of UEGW 2017: “Colorectal laparoscopic skills”, “Trans Anal Microsurgery” and “Introduction into basic Laparoscopic skills”. The last course was conducted by EDS members Rita Gudaityte, Zilvinas Dambrauskas and Povilas Ignatavicius. During this half-day courses participants learned the principles of hand-eye and both hands coordination (“Thread transfer” and “Dice Stacking”), principles of laparoscopic cutting and dissection (“Precision Cutting” and “Dissection”) and got the introduction to laparoscopic suturing and knot tying (“Ligation with loop suture” and “Suturing”).
These Courses were successful and very well attended. More information about the Surgical Learning Area at UEG Week 2018 in Vienna will follow at the beginning of 2018.
