Transanal total mesorectal excision – TaTME
The Transanal total mesorectal excision – TaTME is currently, the most innovative surgical procedure for rectal cancer. Consequently, there is a continuously increasing demand from colorectal surgeons, for TaTME training. The ideal training platform is through cadaveric dissection courses.
The NoDE Institute’s Cadaveric Dissection TaTME Courses consist of a structured program that includes detailed description of the operation through live or unedited videoed TaTME procedures, with emphasis on how to succeed and what to avoid in the process. Subsequently, trainees have the opportunity to perform a TaTME on fresh-frozen cadavers*, in an actual operating-room setting. For every two trainees a cadaver, a proctor and an operating theater are assigned.
The TaTME courses aim to assist surgeons who are already experienced in laparoscopic colorectal surgery, to comprehend the key steps and anatomic landmarks of a TaTME, in order to be able to perform it with oncological safety.
