WS 1​
Obstetric anal sphincter injuries repair: hands-on workshop

Faculty: Abdul H Sultan, Marta Barba,
Yoav Baruch, Matteo Frigerio

Up to 40 participants

We are currently facing a trend towards an increasing incidence of third- or fourth- degree perineal tears. Caregivers who are appropriately trained are more likely to provide a consistent, high standard of anal sphincter repair and contribute to reducing the extent of morbidity and litigation associated with anal sphincter injury. The aim of this workshop is to briefly review current guidelines on management of Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injuries (OASIs) and to spend a substantial period of time on the hands-on training of OASIs repair. 

WS 4​
Stress urinary incontinence: imaging, sexual function and advanced surgical techniques

Simon Emery, Claudine Domoney

Victoria Asfour, Weal Agur

Up to 40 participants


- Consider advanced surgical techniques for stress incontinence.

- Consider the impact of stress incontinence on sexual function.

- Consider imaging relavent to stress incontinence



- Discuss the evidence for autolous fascial slings and Burch Colposuspension

- Discuss practical tips and tricks for Burch colposuspension and Autologous fascial slings

- Discuss how incontinence impacts sexual function

- Review imaging relavent to stress incontinence (including mesh, macroplastique, urethral descent)

WS 2
Pelvic floor ultrasound workshop

Faculty: Kamil Svabik, Rosa Laterza,  Christina Ros

Up to 25 participants

The workshop aims to present the current state of clinical use of pelvic floor ultrasound in urogynecology. 
The ultrasound became in many urogynecological units a routine tool in routine diagnostics algorithms. In recent years there was increasing evidence that ultrasound allows the description of the anatomical situation in the majority of urogynecological disorders like prolapse and incontinence. It is a clinical tool to provide and store evidence of preoperative and postoperative patient anatomical status as well as a functional assessment.
In postsurgical assessment, it is essential to describe and understand the complications, especially after the implants. There the ultrasound plays an irreplaceable role.

WS 5
“Learning without thinking is wasted effort. Thinking without learning is dangerous." Learning curves in Urogynaecology

Faculty: Anna Padoa, Maurizio Serati, Andrea Braga, Tal Fligelman

Up to 75 participants

Urogynecology requires many different skills. In our clinical practice we must be able to adequately perform a clinical assessment, urodynamic studies and pelvic ultrasound, and to carry out surgical interventions with vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic approaches, with or without the use of mesh. Each of these elements is characterized by a unique and significant learning curve process. The purposes of this workshop are:

1. To overview the evidence on specific learning curves necessary for common clinical, instrumental, and surgical tasks in urogynaecology.

2. To bring forward suggestions on how to implement these learning curves in urogynecologic training programs.

WS 3
How to publish a medical article

Faculty: Adi Y. Weintraub, Shimon Ginath

Up to 20 participants

High-quality research is essential for the development of any field of medicine, and this is particularly true for urogynecology and pelvic floor medicine. Reputed medical journals play an important role in disseminating new ideas and results, making them accessible to the wider audience of clinicians. Writing and publishing a manuscript in a renowned medical journal is, therefore, an exciting experience because it represents the outcome of your work and gives you the chance to communicate your research with others.

Early career urogynecologists and young researchers face many difficulties in getting their research work published due highly competitive frameworks and lack of appropriate resources and even more so lack of guidance and training in the art of scientific writing.

This workshop aims to provide some important information and highlight some useful tips for novice authors which will hopefully minimize negative experiences, increase the chances of publication in standard peer reviewed biomedical journals even those with Impact Factor and even enjoy themselves on the way. Other authors might also find it helpful to know the details related to the publishing process.

WS 6
The development of a multidisciplinary team in the management of pelvic floor dysfunction in women, in the perinatal period

Faculty: Angie Rantell (Chair),  Annika Taithongchai, Ilaria Baini,
Silvia Colombo, Donatella Giraudo

Up to 50 participants

The workshop aims to consider the effectiveness of the multidisciplinary approach in the management of pelvic floor dysfunciotions in the perinatal period.

To this end, the data available from the recent literature will be taken into consideration, with theoretical and practical demonstrations, to highlight the contribution that each professional figure can bring as an individual ad as a member of a team.

the role of multiprofessional education and importance of communication within the MDT will be discussed.
