    Enhance Your Knowledge with Online General Surgery CME

    Comprehensive Review of General Surgery provides guidance for preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative management, as well as management of complications. Led by Pardon R. Kenney, MD, clinically-skilled speakers offer direction in selecting operative techniques, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of both open and minimally invasive surgery.

    Lectures in this continuing medical education board review cover a broad range of surgical areas (vascular, breast, abdominal, alimentary tract, trauma, etc.) and reinforce important take-home points, including:

    • Critical Care. Operative necrosectomy should be the last procedure offered to a patient with necrotizing pancreatitis. Exhaust all other options (percutaneous drainage, endoscopic drainage,  video-assisted retroperitoneal debridement) before offering open pancreatic necrosectomy.
    • Ethics. Palliative care is not restricted to care at the end of life or for the imminently dying. It’s an focused on improving quality of life that’s appropriate at any stage of serious illness.
    • Gynecologic Challenges. Unlike most general surgical procedures, gynecologic surgeries often require fertility considerations before determining the best course of action.
    • Tumor Biology. Solid tumors are associated with mutations in proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressors. These mutations disrupt known signaling pathways that are required for normal cellular and immune homeostasis, and often promote a more aggressive tumor behavior. These genetic mutations may be useful therapeutic targets.

  • Oakstone CME Pediatric Anesthesia for General Anesthesiologists

    Discover New Guidelines with Online CME

    This online CME program — tailored to anesthesiologists who care for patients of all ages in ambulatory and inpatient settings — provides a general review of common pediatric anesthesia challenges, as well as clinical pearls and procedure-specific considerations for the young patient.

    Led by University of Minnesota’s Jakob Guenther, MD, expert speakers in Pediatric Anesthesia for General Anesthesiologists discuss physiology, pharmacology, preoperative/postoperative considerations, congenital heart defects, pain control, airway management, and more.

    Additional continuing medical education lectures focus on frequent procedures and anesthetic challenges associated with specific specialties (ENT, dental, neurosurgery, urology, orthopedics, etc)

    Learning Objectives

    At the completion of this course, you should be able to:

    • Have a better overview about the differences in physiology, pharmacology and anatomy between adult and pediatric patients including more recent data and evidence for your daily practice, both for basic techniques of pediatric anesthesia, as well as procedure specific strategies
    • Approach pediatric patients with a focus on their specific needs in the preoperative (anxiety, agitation), intraoperative (physiology, fluid requirements, airway management) and postoperative (emergence, PO(N)V, airway complication) setting
    • Have guidance how to optimize anesthetic technique for common procedures and conditions
    • Have more background information about invasive and complex procedures, conditions (congenital heart disease) and interventions. Those procedures may not be part of your practice, but that the patient either went through them or will have to go through them in the future. Both past and future interventions may have implications on how to approach the patient’s anesthetic management while the patient is under your care

    Intended Audience

    This activity is designed for anesthesiology residents, pediatric anesthesia fellows, and general anesthesiologists.

  • Oakstone CME Comprehensive Review of Urology

    Continuing Medical Education: Advances in Urology

    Comprehensive Review of Urology provides current, relevant information on adult and pediatric disorders of the male and female urinary tract, the male reproductive system, and the kidney. Led by renowned urologist Aria F. Olumi, MD, lecturers use guideline-driven information that will improve your approach to screening, staging, diagnosis, and treatment. You’ll get expert take-home points from each lecture, including:

    • MRI of Prostate Cancer. MRI is effective in detecting focal areas of highgrade prostate cancer, providing accurate locoregional staging, and guiding targeted biopsies.
    • Kidney Cancer – Laparoscopic Management. Laparoscopic and robotic nephrectomy is now the standard care for most renal cell carcinoma patients. It offers significant advantages in morbidity while maintaining oncologic outcomes of open surgery.
    • The Etiology and Treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse. Vaginal wall descent is a normal part of aging; however, once the bulge protrudes past the hymen, most women are symptomatic.
    • Surgical Management of Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer. Surgical management of high-risk bladder cancer is a central component of definitive treatment. Wide resection of the bladder/perivesical tissues and control of the regional pelvic lymph nodes are key surgical tenets.

    Learning Objectives

    At the conclusion of this CME activity, you will be better able to:

    • Discuss appropriate imaging for disorders of the prostate
    • Explain the therapeutic approaches to recurrent urinary tract infections
    • Describe office care and surgical approaches for transgender patients
    • Define the diagnostic approach to a patient suspected of having penile cancer
    • Explain the initial surgical approach to a patient with bladder trauma
    • Distinguish between medical and surgical management of urinary lithiasis
    • Compare the advantages of open surgical management and laparoscopic management for kidney cancer
    • Differentiate which patients are appropriate for surgical management of urinary continence and which are appropriate for medical management
    • Identify the best patient population for active surveillance of prostate cancer
    • Explain the causes of urinary tract infections in children
    • Summarize the neurogenic bladder issues in the adult spina bifida patient

    Intended Audience

    The activity was designed to provide urologists, urology fellows and residents, surgery residents interested in urology, other licensed individual practitioners or ancillary staff interested in urology, or who participate in the delivery of urologic care with current, relevant, and condensed information needed to pass certification and recertification exams.
