Learn in your own time with this fully flexible Advance25TM Course.

Surgical management of the urogenital and reproductive systems can be unforgiving. Ligating, transecting, or removing the wrong thing can result in profound morbidity or mortality. It requires an intricate awareness of anatomy and physiology. Some surgeries such as neoureterocystostomy, subcutaneous ureteral bypass system placement, or urethral anastomosis can be extremely complex. Even the bitch spay – often seen as the bread and butter of elective abdominal surgery – is a challenging procedure where complications can be severe. This course will help you manage urogenital and reproductive surgical cases effectively, ranging from elective neutering to some of the most complex abdominal surgeries.

Enjoy unlimited access to your course materials for a full 12 months. Get the help you need to deal effectively with your small animal urogenital and perineal surgery patients..

Session 1: Anatomy and Physiology of the Urogenital System

The anatomy of the urogenital system is complex and an in-depth understanding of it is vital to enable us to perform surgery safely. This, combined with a robust understanding of urogenital physiology, will help optimise outcomes for our patients.

Session 2: Investigation and Imaging of the Urogenital System

There is a wide range of imaging systems at our disposal to image the urogenital and reproductive systems, but some are more useful than others, depending on what we are trying to investigate. This week will help us appreciate when to use certain systems and why.

Session 3: Female Urogenital and Reproductive System

Ovariohysterectomy is one of the most common elective surgeries in small animal practice, and ovariohysterectomy to manage pyometra is one of the most common emergency surgeries in small animal practice. There are many more surgical conditions and procedures at our disposal with the female urogenital and reproductive systems.

Session 4: Male Urogenital and Reproductive System

Male urogenital and reproductive anatomy may be generally more external than female anatomy, but that does not necessarily make the management of its pathology simpler. This week will cover the interesting surgeries at our disposal to manage these pathologies.

Session 5: Kidneys and Ureters

Nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy or nephrotomy? Ureterotomy, ureteral resection-anastomosis, ureteral stent, or SUB? Decision-making for these procedures can be extremely complex. This week will help guide these challenging decisions, how to perform them safely.

Session 6: Bladder and Urethra

Cystotomy is commonly performed, but what about artificial urethral sphincter placement or even bladder retroversion? And what about neoureterocystostomy versus cystoscopic laser or scissors to manage ureteral ectopia?
