OverviewTraditional teaching of laparoscopic suturing involves C and reverse C technique. It is a good suturing technique to begin with and it teaches how to make a perfect reef knot but the technique has its limitations. One of the major drawback of this technique is it doesn’t resemble any suturing technique used in open surgery and we found it difficult to learn. Advanced laparoscopic surgery requires more skills to get the same knot at correct tension with economy of movements and also to make the knot secure in awkward places. This course will help you learn these skills. This technique is based on a commonly practiced technique in open surgery and hence easy to understand and learn.Target AudienceSt3 and above. Gynaecology, Urology and other subspecialties involved in laparoscopic surgeryLearning StyleThis once day course will deliver short teaching videos and hands on trainingAims & ObjectivesTo be able to handle the needle comfortably in any position, to tie a reef knot, convert it to a slip knot and tighten it with correct tension in 2 minutes.Learning OutcomesAt the end of this course, delegates will be able to: 1)complete a reef knot satifactorily within less than minutes 2)Demonstrate an increased level of skill […]
