Surgical training course

The basis to laparoscopic exploration of the common bile duct is the maintenance of the biliary environment. Scientific evidence has demonstrated that these procedures have better clinical short and long-term results.

Cost-effectiveness studies also confer it undeniable superiority relative to the treatment of biliary lithiasis by way of cholecystectomy and ERCP. Nevertheless, the complexity of the techniques and the pressure by gastroenterologists has limited
its widespread implementation.

This course aims to systematize the technique based on decision protocols. The development of surgical skills is maintained from simple cholecystectomy towards treatment of common bile duct stones without risks for the patients. Practical exercises will be
undertaken on inanimate, organic, and animal models.
Training includes choledocoscopy, cholangiography, suture and biliary anastomosis.
