Register for the course “Iatrogenic Bile Duct Injuries” organized by the Institute of Image-guided Surgery!
Cholecystectomy is the most common surgical procedure in the world. Bile duct injury is a severe and potentially life-threatening complication of cholecystectomy. At present, approximately 750,000 laparoscopic cholecystectomies are performed annually in the United States (accounting for roughly 90% of all cholecystectomies) with an overall serious complication rate that remains high despite increasing experience with the procedure. The incidence of iatrogenic lesions of the bile ducts is reported between 0.3% and 1% depending on the series and the severity of the gallbladder disease.
This course is an opportunity to develop knowledge of cholecystectomy techniques and understand the etiology, diagnosis and management of bile ducts injuries. Participants will be trained to develop a multidisciplinary approach based on evidence-based recommendations mentored by international experts in the field of percutaneous, laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery in a unique technological environment that will allow them to begin or refine their practical experience.
The course is intended for surgeons, radiologists, gastroenterologists and all specialists dealing with the treatment of a patient presenting with gallbladder disease and/or injury .
Located at IHU Strasbourg & IRCAD France, in Strasbourg.
