ISPD Europe PD University for Surgeons 2018
October 8, 2018
ISPD European PD (Peritoneal Dialysis) University for Surgeons is a two-fold approach to training general, transplant, and vascular surgeons to place catheters for peritoneal dialysis using laparoscopic techniques. The course consists of didactic lectures followed by comprehensive hands-on workshops. The hands-on workshop sessions are designed to take the surgeon through the entire process of catheter placement; including pre-operative catheter exit site selection, catheter implantation, and exteriorization and dressing. The course is limited in size to maximize the learning experience and time for collaboration with the faculty.
