Start time: 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM
Duration: 4 hour(s)
Partial pancreatectomy: why should you never be tempted to segmentally resect an insulinoma in the middle of a pancreatic lobe, leaving the most distal part of the pancreas in place?
Adrenalectomy: what perioperative strategies are indicated to decrease the risk of postoperative pulmonary thromboembolism after resection of a cortisol-secreting adrenal tumour?
Thyroidectomy: how should you minimise the risk of life-threatening haemorrhage?
Parathyroidectomy: how many parathyroid glands can be safely removed during surgery without a risk of permanent hypoparathyroidism?
About this course
Would you like to improve your knowledge and gain practical tips regarding endocrine tumour surgery and perioperative management in small animals?
Surgical management of endocrine tumours is a delicate activity and requires intense perioperative monitoring. Surgical excision of endocrine tumours is the treatment of choice, as it offers improved long-term survival rates compared to medical management. During this course, participants will review surgical anatomy and (patho) physiology of the endocrine glands. Techniques to improve surgical treatment of endocrine tumours and perioperative management, including anaesthesia and critical care elements will be discussed.
Why do this course?
With appropriate training, surgical excision of endocrine neoplasms of the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal cortex and pancreas is relatively low risk in experienced hands. However, surgical excision of endocrine neoplasms should only be performed when intense requirements for perioperative management of these patients can be met. The course will provide participants with a solid basis in the fundamentals of endocrine tumour surgery in small animals and perioperative care.
The webinars for this course will be pre-recorded and can be viewed as recorded versions throughout the course. A live Q&A session with the tutor will run on the following dates at 1:30pm London time
