The work of the Department of Surgery and Vascular Surgery of Shupyk National Healthcare University of Ukraine (head of the department – prof. S. Savoliuk) started with a series of thematic improvement cycles "Selected Questions for Emergency Surgery".
The curriculum provides an overview of current trends and approaches in the diagnosis and treatment of urgent pathology of the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneum, which built on the basis of existing standards and protocols in Ukraine, Europe and the United States.
In the introductory lecture of the head of the Department of Surgery and Vascular Surgery S. Savoliuk (MD, Full Professor) was noted that globaly surgery, both urgent and planned, goes to the level of unification, standardization of protocols, in relation to standard operating procedures integrating the latest surgical techniques (laparoscopy, endoscopy, navigation puncture interventions and their combination in the form of hybrid operations), which allows to bring these operative interventions to a new high-quality orbit – to achieve high quality of life. Traditionally, materials were presented in the lecture about the implementation of Fast Track Surgery protocols, miniinvasive surgical technique and the use of electric welding of biological tissues in the routine work of the surgical clinic, which are the main scientific priorities of the department.
It has already become a good tradition to apply such a perspective direction of training in the educational process as master classes in the format of live surgery.
Application of scientific and practical directions in the format of live surgery in the program of thematic improvement cycles is undoubtedly a promising direction of training and involvement of specialists for training.
