Welcome to the Toronto Video Atlas of Liver, Pancreas and Transplant Surgery. This website has been designed to instruct surgeons in the care of patients with complex problems in liver, pancreas and transplant surgery, and highlight the advanced surgical techniques required for the management of these diseases.
The curriculum and cases have been targeted to surgeons who have completed their training in General Surgery and are enrolled in Fellowship training in liver, pancreas and transplant surgery. Additionally, Senior Residents in General Surgery and recently graduated liver, pancreas and transplant surgeons may find the content valuable to their practice.
The curriculum has been divided into three main modules:
Standard hepatobiliary and pancreatic procedures such as hepatectomies, choledocal cysts and Whipple procedures are covered, as well as living donor transplant cases.
Specific techniques such as in situ cold perfusion, parachute anastomosis and pancreatico-jejunal Whipple reconstruction are explored in full detail.
Complex cases such as a redo-hepatectomy, ex vivo liver transplant and Whipple procedures with superior mesenteric vein reconstruction are featured, explained thoroughly by our team of surgeons.
Within each module are sections for liver, pancreas, bile duct and transplant surgery, and within each section, there are specific chapters with virtual reconstructions of the anatomy and videos of the operative details.
Each chapter is an independent learning exercise with objectives, bibliography and questions.
We encourage you to provide feedback to us to enhance the Video Atlas for future liver, pancreas & transplant surgeons.
