Overview

The ESAVS Soft Tissue Surgery – Laparoscopy course is dedicated to practitioners, specialists and faculty members wishing to start with laparoscopic surgery. A strong focus will be made on practical exercises with dry labs on models and ex-vivo organs and wet labs on dogs’ cadavers and anesthetized pigs.

During this course, beside the theoretical training, many hours will be dedicated to hands-on. You will train on models (Mistels), on anatomic pieces (livers) and on dog cadavers. Your final training will happen on anesthetized pigs. In addition, under the supervision of your course masters and in cooperation with the veterinary faculty, you might have the possibility to participate to real surgeries on real patients being addressed for elective surgeries as ovariectomy or ovario-hysterectomy.
All procedures on anesthetized animal will respect the most advanced animal welfare guidelines. The dogs will be brought back to where they belong (shelters or owners).
