Cambridge Anastomosis Workshop with Video Content on 4 DVDs
Based on the internationally renowned, long-running Cambridge Anastomosis Workshop this unique and comprehensive intermediate-to-advanced course is presented across four DVDs and contains an accompanying manual. The course covers basic techniques of knotting, instrument handling and stapling, and performing a wide range of bowel, vascular and urological anastomoses by hand, using sutures. The procedures are thoroughly explained and demonstrated on animal material. Common errors are illustrated with methods of correction.

Anastomoses covered include: • Small bowel: end-to-end and side-to-side • Hand closure of bowel end • Colon: end-to-end and side-to-end • Low colorectal, hand-sewn and stapled • Gastric: pyloroplasty, gastro-jejunostomy and partial gastrectomy • Oesophago-gastric anastomosis • Vascular surgery for trauma • Reconstructive vascular surgery • Abdominal aortic aneurysm grafting • Basic urological anastomoses.
