The event is primarily dedicated to the issues of thoracoscopy and laparoscopy use for children with various defects and diseases of thoracic and abdominal cavity, retroperitoneal space.
Participants of the course will consider a wide range of issues: from thoracoscopic correction of esophageal atresia to laparoscopically assisted interventions for children with anorectal defects.
Issues of endoscopic intraluminal correction of geneogenous megaureter and single-port laparoscopic operations in pediatric urology will also be discussed.
MAIN SUBJECTS OF THE COURSE:
Thoracoscopic surgery of esophageal defects of newborns
Thoracoscopic surgery of lung and diaphragm defects of newborns and infants
Laparoscopic surgeries on the pancreas of children and adolescents
Laparoscopic surgeries for children with Hirsprung disease and anorectal malformations
New technologies (magnetic compression anastomoses of the esophagus, ICG fluorescence) in pediatric surgery
Single-port endovideosurgical interventions in pediatric urology
Interventional approach to treat injuries of solid organs of children
LECTURES WILL CONTAIN DETAILED INFORMATION ON THE FOLLOWING:
Indications and techniques of minimal access interventions
Short-term and long-term results of surgical treatment
Possible complications, ways of their prevention and correction
Each lecture will end with a discussion during which the participants of the event will be able to ask their questions.
