The G5 Endoscopy Unit at the Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of the General University Hospital in Prague runs courses on "The Use of Modern Technology in Laparoscopy". For this occasion the OLYMPUS company lends the G5 a state-of-the art 3D videolaparoscope and Thunderbeat instruments (combining a harmonic scalpel and bipolar coagulation in one end piece). The course is focused on the use of this technology in more demanding laparoscopic surgery

State-of-the art technology means better treatment

During the course, Doc. MUDr. Michal Mára, Csc. and MUDr. Michael Fanta, PhD. carry out surgery, such as total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH), operations of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) and staging operations of endometrial cancer (total laparoscopic hysterectomy + pelvic and paraaortic lymphadenectomy).

Thanks to top-level technology, these demanding operations are conducted faster, in a more gentle way, with smaller blood loss and a smaller risk of serious complications. The endoscopy unit can afford 20 Thunderbeat endoscopic end pieces a year which is very little for a centre specialising in the most difficult types of surgery in the field of gynaecologic laparoscopy. It is the goal of the APOLENA Foundation to purchase additional dozens of endoscopic end pieces so that more women patients could receive surgery using this significantly more advanced method.
