American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Session Code: SC07B
Title: Contemporary Strategies for Laparoscopic Inguinal and Ventral Hernia Repair (Lecture and Lab)
Date and Time of Session: Tuesday, October 24: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: San Diego Convention Center - Room: 16AB
Description: Inguinal and ventral hernia repair are among the most commonly performed general surgical procedures. However, the penetrance of laparoscopic hernia repair remains low despite its advantages in many patients. The learning curve for laparoscopic hernia repair is lengthy despite participation in formal didactic training and is a major, limiting factor in widespread adoption. Although laparoscopic hernia repair has been performed for over 20 years, steady advances in techniques have resulted in improved outcomes. This course provides formal didactic training in patient selection, procedural anatomy, techniques, postoperative management, and treatment of common complications encountered in laparoscopic inguinal and ventral hernia repair. The laboratory experience provides an opportunity for learners to work in small groups with expert surgeons using simulated hernia models. Learners are encouraged to challenge faculty with unique hernia questions and cases by bringing complex cases to discuss in a small group setting. Surgeons with all levels of experience from novice to experienced are encouraged to attend.
