Tuesday, November 17

  • Clinical Study: Synthetic Mid-Urethral Sling Placement. Scott Serels, M.D., will present results from a study titled "Cadaveric Assessment of Synthetic Mid-Urethral Sling Placement" during Plenary Session 5 (Urogynecology) at 2:26 p.m. in Osceola 1-3. The study is intended to visually assess placement of mid-urethral synthetic slings against the urethra at the end of a procedure regardless of the fact that they may be placed by different methods, anchored to different muscles and tensioned by different means.
  • Video Session: Use of the Mid-Saggital Hemi-Pelvis. Dennis Miller, M.D., and Dobie Giles, M.D., will present a video titled "Use of the Mid-Saggital Hemi-Pelvis to Demonstrate Surgical Anatomy for Vaginal Surgery," which demonstrates a novel approach to teaching physicians about the pelvic anatomy.
