Master Class Skills Lab For Live Animal Model (Pediatric Laparoscopy)

The University of Minho and the European Pediatric Surgery Association (EUPSA) come together to organize a new hands-on course of Pediatric Laparocopy. We will be focusing on the basic laparoscopy. By the end of this Master Class, participants should be capable to initiate their first laparoscopic pediatric procedures. There will be theoretical sessions on laparoscopic equipment and instruments, suturing and knot tying techniques as well as major laparoscopic pediatric procedures. Participants will have the opportunity to practice their laparoscopic skills in ex vivo tissues and in the rabbit model.
