Management of Complications in the Anterior Thoracic and Abdominal Approach of the Spine. In-Vivo Workshop on a Swine Model – 3rd ed.

Course Features

Description

This course is designed to teach spine surgeons to recognise and manage the different complications that can commonly occur during anterior thoracic and lumbar spine approaches, and which require knowledge related to other surgical specialties such as general surgery, vascular surgery, urology and thoracic surgery. Vascular, general, urological and thoracic specialists will offer participants the opportunity for supervised live tissue training on anaesthetised pigs.
This course does not have any sections.

Goals

At the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the benefits, risks and limitations of the different approaches to the spine: anterior, lateral, posterior oblique, percutaneous.
  • Know the tricks and errors of anterior thoracic and lumbar spine approaches.
  • Perform experimental surgery on live tissue:
    • Identification of structures and strategies to avoid damage to the viscera.
    • Practical handling of the vasculature, intestine, ureters, lungs, diaphragm and oesophagus.
    • Repair vascular, intestinal, ureteral, pulmonary, diaphragmatic and oesophageal injuries.
