In addition to the main scientific programme, we are pleased to offer the following pre-congress courses, which will take place on Wednesday, 21 November 2018:

Pre-Congress #1:

Presurgical Diagnosis of Deep Endometriosis by Transvaginal Sonography (TVS) – potential and limitations

Attendance limited to 50 participants.

Organised by: Gernot Hudelist, M.D, MSc, Vienna, Austria and Caterina Exacoustos, M.D.,  Rome, Italy

This course will focus on the sonographic diagnosis of deep endometriosis and the applications of transvaginal sonography (TVS) in presurgical staging of deep endometriosis. Hence, both perspectives – the surgeon‘s and the sonographer‘s will be discussed. Typical sonographic features of deep  endometriosis and their applicability for planning surgery for deep endometriosis will be demonstrated to the participants.

Pre-Congress #2:

Laparoscopic Skills Workshop (LASTT-SUTT)
Wednesday, 21 November: 08:30-12:00 (break) 14:00-17:30

EUR 180 (incl. VAT)

Attendance limited to 40 participants.

Organised by: European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery (EAGS) and European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE)

To ensure patient’s safety in laparoscopic surgery, it is clear that future Laparoscopic surgeons should possess objective measurable theoretical knowledge and practical skills, prior to undertaking any procedure, even under supervision, in the OR.
As part of its plan to standardise strategies and regulations for training in laparoscopy throughout Europe, the European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery (EAGS) in collaboration with ESGE and EBCOG has conducted extensive scientific research resulting in a validated programme of exercises for acquiring and testing laparoscopic psychomotor skills.
LASTT™  /SUTT™ is a validated assessment and certification method which measures and evaluates psychomotor skills in camera navigation, hand-eye and bi-manual coordination, laparoscopic suturing.
All exercises are executed in dry-lab set-up, with participants working together in pairs, and under the strict procedural guidance of instructors.
The course is open to all delegates interested in laparoscopic surgery, experience level is indifferent.
