Conferences and Events
This workshop aims to provide skills in all aspects of pelvic floor and anal endosonography that would interest the novice as well as the more experienced. The programme will be comprehensive, encompassing a global perspective to pelvic floor trauma including levator injuries, rectoceles, cystoceles and urinary incontinence. Live demonstrations are planned and delegates will be given an opportunity to develop hands-on experience on image acquisition and interpretation
Venue: Postgraduate medical centre, Croydon University Hospital, Croydon, Surrey
Cost: £370.00 for two days (£200.00 for one day)

With ever increasing awareness of symptoms and disorders related to “Pelvic Floor Dysfunction” comes the need for recognition, assessment and treatment tailored to specific patient’s demographics. The patient and condition profile mandate partnership that combines multitude of disciplines. The multidisciplinary approach is the key to successful outcome not only in terms of cure but also more importantly in terms of adjustment of expectations and realistic outcome measures.
The two day course is open to all specialities in practice or training.
· Anatomy and physiology of the pelvic floor
· Assessment and diagnostic pathways
· Conservative adjuncts to management
· Faecal incontinence and treatment strategies
· Urinary incontinence and treatment strategies
· Slow transit constipation
· Obstructed defaecation
· Pelvic organ prolapse
· Chronic pelvic pain
OBSTRACT: interpreting the abstraction of tissue regeneration & re-engineering of femal pelvic floor disorders in clinical practice. The Royal Society, London 6-17 October 2017
FREE discussion meeting to explore recent advances in regeneration and repair of pelvic tissues, and methods to engineer regeneration for the benefit of patients with PFD.
Organised by Dr Sohier Elneil, Professor Sheila MacNeil, Professor Margot Damaser and Dr Gloria Esegbona
This novel interdisciplinary meeting will bring together scientists and clinicians to review our current understanding of the pathophysiology of female pelvic floor disorders (PFD). Through an analysis of the molecular, cellular, biomechanical and neurological constituents that govern the trauma and subsequent healing process, and correlating this with the ambiguities plaguing the prognosis of surgical repairs. Investigate how our current technologies of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering may offer restorative properties of existing pelvic floor tissue. In addition, explore how these treatment methods can be used in a cost-effective, personalized and scientific approach to care.
A poster session will take place on the first day and the call for abstracts is now open.
