This course focuses on the retroperitoneal approach. This 2-day masterclass consists of hands-on training on live animal tissue and live case observations. After completion, participants receive a Orsi Academy certificate & CME credits.

The transperitoneal approach is a recommended surgery for tumors that are more anterior and are not easily accessible from the retroperitoneum. Retroperitoneal approach during RAPN could guarantee a more direct access to the kidney and renal hilum without bowel mobilization and an easier access to the lesions located at the level of the posterior face of the kidney. This could lead to a reduction of the operative time, to avoid extensive dissections, and in particular patients could decrease the incidence of perioperative complications.

What you will learn

  • Retroperitoneal RAPN technique
  • Renorraphy techniques and proper apposition of the hemostatic agents
  • Development of the retroperitoneal space
  • Explanation of the patient position and trocar configuration
  • Tips and tricks for complex cases / complication management
