Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common health problem affecting about 30% of the women (1,2)

The abdominal sacrocolpopexy is considered to be a gold standard in surgical treatment of POP (3,4,5).

Minimally invasive approaches specifically reduce morbidity associated with open sacrocolpopexy, facilitating patient recovery. Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy has similar outcomes to abdominal sacrocolpopexy, but is technically challenging such that it is usually performed by expert laparoscopists (5).

When compared to open techniques, robotic abdominal sacrocolpopexy is associated with less blood loss, shorter lengths of stay. Robotic technology has made laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy a more feasible procedure with shorter learning curves (3,4).



For urologists & gynecologists who want to learn the robotic approach in sacrocolpopexy.

Prof. Erdem Canda

Dr. Geert De Naeyer

This 4-day masterclass consists of:

  • one day of basic robotic training on Xi-system at Orsi Academy
  • one day of live case observations at the OLV Hospital in Aalst
  • two days of hands-on training on porcine models at Orsi Academy


Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be updated on the outcomes, complications and recent literature of RASC.
  2. Participants will be shown comprehensive videos on different steps and approaches of RASC.
  3. Participants will be trained on the da vinci Xi robotic system through simulation and dry-lab exercises in order to master dexterity of the system
  4. Participants will be trained the different steps of the procedure on a porcine model, offering good simulation of the RASC steps. This will give them experience in straight needle manipulation, mesh manipulation, dissecting promontory and experiencing visual feedback. Moreover they will learn how to dissect and suture in a narrow pelvis using a V-loc suture.

Orsi Academy has its own e-learning platform, centralizing the best of existing educational content and making it accessible for approved users.

Step-by-step videos with explanatory textual information are provided in the video-library next to didactic material. Proctors can push specific content to course participants prior to the course or allow alumni to consult course material later on in their career. Next to these sections, links to a wide variety of discipline-specific literature can be found on the platform.
