CTEC 2022 - Core Skills: Laparoscopic General Surgery

This cadaveric Laparoscopic General Surgery Trainee workshop provides Junior General Surgical Trainees with the opportunity to learn new skills in a range of procedures in minimal access surgery.  Limited places are available for Service Registrars with strong laparoscopic surgical experience and for Theatre Nurses in the role of assistant. Trainees will deepen their understanding and skills through a combination of presentations, demonstrations and practical cadaveric sessions.

The workshop aims to improve operative knowledge and confidence in commonly performed laparoscopic general surgical procedures. It is of particular relevance to Trainees about to commence or in the early stages of a rotation in general surgery. Participants will have the opportunity to utilise a direct visualisation and guidance system during the laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure.  Each practical session will also focus on the immediate anatomy of the structures operated on and their adjacent structures, broadening and consolidating participants’ anatomical knowledge and understanding
