- Complication management.
- Tips and tricks for complex cases.
Live case observation, Hands-on, Simulation, Video
Advantages of the procedure
This course will focus on the correct resection techniques to preserve the renal parenchyma in the best way, in particular the sutureless technique.
The aim of the RAPN sutureless course is:
- Standardization of the used techniques
- Show the different types of resection techniques and the renorrhaphy technique and the new sutureless technique
- Complication management
- Tips and tricks for complex cases
This course is for urologists with previous experience on the robot, who want to learn or optimize the robot-assisted partial nephrectomy procedure. This course is not for robotic beginners.
