Pelvic Exenteration Surgery Series Episode 2: Anterior compartment tumors

EP. 671Oct. 26, 202327:14
Join Professor Michael Solomon, Dr Kilian Brown and Dr Jacob Waller from Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, Australia, for this special four part series on pelvic exenteration surgery for locally advanced and recurrent rectal cancer. Learn about these ultra-radical procedures which go beyond the traditional TME planes that we learn during surgical training, and into all compartments of the pelvis.

Episode 2 outlines the radical technical approaches to anteriorly invasive tumours, including en bloc cystectomy, perineal urethrectomy, inter-labial vaginectomy and radical pubic bone resections.

Each episode in this series features a different international guest surgeon. In episode 2, the RPA team are joined by Dr Paul Sutton from The Christie Hospital, Manchester, UK.
