Meet the surgeon

Meet the surgeon - surgical webinars

During the COVID 19 epidemic, all health professionals have suffered difficult times accompanied by uncertainty.
On the other hand, this crisis has shown us new ways of being in contact.

Our society is acutely aware of the need to continue carrying out its mission of sharing knowledge.
Within the Educational Committee, we are pleased to offer a new training initiative that we find very attractive.

Once a month, usually the last Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm we will meet in this online meeting called "Meet the surgeon."

We will have an excellent opportunity to share from the hands of an expert a specific surgical technique of our specialty.

In these 60-minute live webinars, leading surgeons will present and discuss with participants their approach to specific surgical techniques in gynaecological oncology.

The webinars will include:
30-minute presentation of the surgical technique and approach, including real case videos, to demonstrate practical tips and recommendations.
30-minute discussion and Q&A,  participants will be able to send questions to the surgeon during the webinar.

The monthly “MEET THE SURGEON” webinars, will be the first edition of the new concept of web-based education. Each webinar will be dedicated to a specific topic. The list of topics and experts will be available soon.

Learning objectives:

  • To offer the audience getting more in-depth knowledge of specific surgical gyn-onc procedures led by experienced colleagues.
  • To bring the opportunity of interacting among the audience´s members in an enriched educational discussion.
  • To obtain some key messages to take home to improve the surgical techniques of the attendees

 

CME Accreditation

  • 1 CME credit will be granted for every live webinar
  • To get the credit, you must register to the webinar and watch the whole event.

Abstract

Robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) is a technological advancement that facilitates the application of minimally invasive techniques for complex operations in gynecologic oncology. RAS has been used for patients with endometrial cancer and resulted in the increased use of minimally invasive surgery with improved outcomes compared with laparotomy, expecially for obese patients. For early cervical cancer, robotic radical hysterectomy is  feasible but after the results of the LACC study  its safety is under dibate. RAS  to stage women with early-stage ovarian cancer seem to have similar surgical and oncologic outcomes, with a shorter learning curve compared with laparoscopy. Therefore the role of robotic-assisted surgery is to allow more patients to receive the benefits of the minimally invasive approach.

Abstract

The detrimental impact of residual disease in ovarian cancer (OC) after debulking surgery has been shown in various retrospective/prospective studies. In advanced OC upper abdominal tumor spread seems to be challenging for clinicians/surgeons as demonstrated by a GOG trial where the diaphragm was the most common localization for residual disease. Furthermore, in up to two-thirds of patients enlarged CT-morphologic cardiophrenic lymph nodes (LN) will be present which might also have impact on prognosis. Therefore, to achieve complete resection the management and structured surgical techniques are essential (including knowledge of the anatomic landmarks, surgical steps e.g., liver mobilization, adequate exposure, opening diaphragm and exzision of cardiophrenic LNs). In this workshop we would like to share our approach for right upper abdominal surgery at the Kliniken Essen-Mitte (KEM).

Abstract

Pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy (LND) became a part of the “standard” surgical treatment of endometrial cancer after the publication of GOG 33 in 1987. GOG 33 was not meant to support routine use of LND as it was a single arm clinicopathologic staging study. Yet, comprehensive pelvic and para-aortic LND to the renal veins became the “standard”. Subsequent randomized controlled trials (RCT) failed to show a therapeutic benefit of pelvic LND leading many to suggest complete omission of surgical nodal staging. The presence of nodal disease is prognostic and predictive of outcome meaning that it will affect our decisions regarding postoperative therapies. Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping is a nice happy middle ground between no LND and comprehensive LND. SLN mapping accurately identifies nodal disease without compromising oncologic outcomes. We will discuss the evolution of LND and SLN mapping in endometrial carcinomas, the proper mapping technique with tips and tricks, as well as the current evidence and limitations regarding SLN mapping.
