Bariatric Surgery 30 January - 2 February 2017

Come and learn about Bariatric Surgery, at the Hands-On-Training area at Arab Health 2017.


Overview

Discover the most advanced bariatric surgery techniques at this hands-on training module. Run in association with Gruppo San Donato (GSD), the biggest and most organised healthcare Group in Italy.

Three bite-sized training sessions will be delivered by world renowned educational experts across the four days of the exhibition. Each topic will be repeated 3 times daily so that you don’t miss out.

Each 30 minute session will be divided into small training groups so that attendees benefit from one on one guidance, demonstrations and feedback, providing the best opportunity for interaction and group learning.


All-in-one Mesh Hernioplasty

Repeated 3 times per day

Capacity: 5 Surgeons per sessions

Target audience: General Surgeons

Overview:

The course will deliver hands-on-training on a new and simplified method for repairing primary inguinal hernias aiming to reduce neuralgic complications and to improve the patient’s discomfort.

We offer surgeons a unique opportunity to develop a fully endoscopic, completely reversible and minimally invasive solution for primary inguinal hernia repair for obese and diabetic patients.

Placing a prosthesis of the same size and specular to the area of weakness on the posterior wall of the inguinal canal, bridges the gap between the fascia transversalis, the mesh and the fibro-cremasteric sheath which is pressed upon by the overlying spermatic cord and external oblique aponeurosis. Delivering a direct and precise reinforcement of any weak areas lacking a muscular layer in the inguinal canal. The minor surgical trauma and attention to anatomical structures is a great advantage as we minimise postoperative pain, shorten recovery time and allow patients complete mobility.

The procedure: Once the spermatic cord is identified, a longitudinal medial incision of the fibro-cremasteric sheath will be carried out and a small prosthesis will be positioned. Using mosquito forceps, the margins of the incision will be held back and cord the cord elements will be dissected to the inguinal ligament. This will reveal a fibro-cremasteric sheath (from the medial incision to the inguinal ligament) which we will cover with mesh. After hernial reduction is accomplished the mesh is will be places to strengthen areas of weakness from which the hernia may originate.  The medial margin of the fibro-cremasteric sheath will be transposed beneath the cord a running suture fixed to the medial muscular structures will envelope the mesh to the pubis. Finally, the cord will be returned to its anatomical position.

  

Learning Objectives:

Advantages of this new technique for surgeons:

  • A simplified and more efficient than traditional procedures
  • Is performed without neuralgia for patients
  • Reduces the feeling of foreign body invasion for patients
  • No isolation of nerve structures required
  • Reducing neuralgic complications

Bariatric Endoluminal Treatments

Repeated 3 times per day

Capacity: 4 participants per session

Target Audience: Surgeons and Gastroenterologists

Overview:

Our training will enable advanced endoscopic surgery by allowing physicians to place full-thickness sutures through a flexible endoscope. Across the globe, physicians are leveraging endoscopic suturing for a variety of bariatric procedures including Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG), Bariatric Sleeve Revisions, Outlet and Pouch Reductions.
We also showcase a new malassorbitive endoscopic treatment for diabetes patient. This treatment delivers rapid and long-lasting improvements in blood sugar control and weight loss, and offers physicians and patients a minimally-invasive solution for the treatment of these diseases.

Learning Objectives:

Advantages of this training for surgeons:

  • A simplified and more efficient technique than traditional procedures
  • Minimally-invasive solutions for the treatment of these diseases
  • Updating current skills with advanced procedures
  • Removal of complex surgical knots

Trainer:

  • Dr. Andrea Formiga, International Apollo Adivisory Board member, Italian Endobarrier System user, Milan, Italy
