Intra and Retroperitoneal Pelvic Anatomy:
Pearls of Dissection and Avoidance of Complication

 Vadim Morozov, Chair
Nucelio Lemos, Co-Chair

Faculty: Adrian Balica, E. Cristian Campian, Nucelio Lemos, Vadim Morozov,
Maurizio Rosati, Jonathon Solnik, Nicolae Suciu

This course provides a detailed review of the female pelvic anatomy, from normal appearing structures and organs to the different levels of pathologic conditions most commonly encountered in gynecologic surgery. With heavy emphasis on video-laparoscopic education, participants will have an ample opportunity to observe and discuss both “routine” laparoscopic and advanced video-laparoscopym presentations. Overview of the collecting system, with primary emphasis on the ureter and its course in the pelvis, will be discussed and demonstrated through the instructional videos. Pelvic sidewall dissection, with particular accent on avascular retroperitoneal spaces of the pelvis, will be demonstrated including the access to the uterine vessels, pelvic ureter and pelvic nerves. Potential complications of pelvic surgery will be discussed as well, with techniques aimed at avoiding and recognizing them.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:1) Identify normal anatomic structures of the female pelvis, 2) recognize the course of the pelvic ureter, 3) recognize the importance of the avascular spaces, 4) employ different pelvic dissection techniques, 5) integrate the knowledge of pelvic dissection into surgical practice, and 6) predict potential complications of pelvic surgery, and 7) use nerve-sparing concept in pelvic surgery.
