Practical PCNL: From Access to Exit- A Hands-on Course- California (2019)
Don't miss the only cadaver based hands-on PCNL course of 2019!
Directed by Ralph V. Clayman, MD and Jaime Landman, MD, this newly enhanced course will feature a combination of didactic lectures, surgical video cases, panel discussions, Q & A sessions, an interactive review using audience response and hands-on surgical skill stations that allow each participant to perform percutaneous stone removal from start to finish on human cadavers for more accurate training.
At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Obtain percutaneous access to the kidney using fluoroscopy in combination with ureteroscopic and/or ultrasound guidance.
- Review instrumentation integral to optimizing PCNL success (including tract dilation, graspers, baskets, flexible nephroscopy).
- Perform prone flexible cystoscopy.
- Demonstrate the optimal methods for post-operative sealing or drainage of the percutaneous tract.
- Utilize flexible ureteroscopy and instrumentation in combination with PCNL to enhance renal access and stone treatment success.
- Routinely employ a ureteral access sheath during flexible ureteroscopy.
- Perform and review ultrasound imaging.
- Recognize and manage complications of PCNL.
- Apply knowledge gained in this course to develop a practice in which PCNL becomes an integral surgical procedure in the treatment of stone disease.
