Course Overwiew/Scope:

Learning and teaching activities of surgical procedures on female and male pelvic anatomic/functional pathologies, techniqual tips and tricks, usage of technologic tools, anatomic pelvic dissection and pelvic organ identifications, materials for surgery, complications and problem solving, 3D printed models, and interactive discussions

Aims and topics:

In male/female pelvic region:

  • Detailed pelvic anatomic dissection with endo-assisted camera/head-mounted camera
  • Male urethral dissection, reconstructive procedures, sling and AUS implantation
  • Female urethral support surgery and vaginal dissection based on anterior-posterior part
  • Tips and tricks of prolapse surgery (Sacrocolpopexy, Sacrohysteropexy, Sacrospinous ligament fixation, native tissue vaginal prolapse repair)
  • Tips and tricks of SNS (Sacral Neuromodulation)-anatomy based training for beginners

All activities (theoretical, practical/hands-on training, surgical videos) will provide high-level fundamental scientific background on pelvic functional surgery to the urologists/urogynecologists who are interested in this field.

Target Group




Recontructive pelvic floor surgeons

Participants:  25-30 (max. 4 station)


In collaboration with ICS Institute – School of Modern Technology

Financial Situation: In this course, there will be no advertisement of specific products, the products only used for academic aims in cadaveric surgeries. Course designed as non-profit status.

Intellectual Outcomes: All dissections and surgical procedures on cadavers will be recorded for ICS TV as educational material and training activity of School of Modern Technology. The evaluation forms will be filled by participants at the end of the course.

 Surgical Anatomy Basis Dissection


All participants will gain experience on pelvic-perineal surgical gross anatomy without doing dissection, and learn the relations among anatomic pelvic structures using 3D- VITOM technology and endoscopic instruments

Male/female pelvic floor-perineum anatomy, female genital organs, male urogenital organs, bladder, urethra, fascial layers, ligaments, major vessels and nerves (pelvic plexus)

– 3D printed female pelvic model will be used for basic anatomy

 Surgical Technique Basis Dissection


All participants will do surgery with the guidance of mentors on fresh-frozen cadavers and 3D –printed models.
