Course Overview

The ESAVS Soft Tissue Surgery courses are dedicated to veterinarians in practice or in the academic field who are willing to deepen their knowledge in soft tissue surgery. The comprehensive study program consists currently of 4 one-week modules. Each course is composed of a mix of theory and practice on models and cadavers. Much time is dedicated to interactive and practical training under the supervision of course masters and instructors, who are all internationally recognized European or American specialists.
After attending the whole program, participants shall have acquired sufficient knowledge not only to face most of the current clinical situations but also to further progress by themselves and then recognize the cases that need to be referred to specialists.

STS I (Soft Tissue Surgery I) is mandatory before continuing on to the next courses. STS II, III and IV can be taken in any order. It is recommended to take STS V only after completion of the previous courses.

Soft Tissue Surgery III:
During this course, we will concentrate on more advanced abdominal surgeries. After reviewing the indications and techniques for current urinary tract surgery, we will address the surgical treatments of urinary incontinence and urinary tract trauma. The second part of the course will focus on liver and gallbladder surgery as well as on pancreas and adrenals.

Learning Outcomes:
At the end of the course, participants 1) shall master most of the urinary tract surgical techniques; 2) get a sound knowledge of management of urinary incontinence; 3) have acquired a good understanding of liver surgery including porto-systemic shunt; 4) be able to operate or refer advanced pancreas or adrenal surgeries.
