Project Description

This 3D animated video, intended for surgical trainees in the fields of gynecology and gynecologic oncology surgery, introduces viewers to the surgical procedure for a total laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and staging with omentectomy and sentinel lymph node dissection using ICG imaging for endometrial cancer.Total laparoscopic hysterectomies are one of the most common procedures in gynecologic surgery. Indocyanine green fluorescence mapping, via cervical injection, of the sentinel lymph nodes for resection and biopsy has been shown to be an effective and accurate assessment strategy for endometrial cancer staging. Because some discrepancies exist between the clinical anatomic and gynecologic surgical description of the pelvic spaces and their limits, a surgical-specific description of these spaces is expounded in the animation.
