Endoscopic stone treatment

This training curriculum aims to provide the clinician with proficiency skills in the treatment of urinary stones with endoscopic techniques. This protocol has been designed following a very strict process, in order to mitigate the risks of complications related to the learning curve process. Moving along the different tasks and training steps, the participant will learn how to use the different instruments and technologies that can be functional to stone fragmentation and extraction. The EST s1 (Endoscopic Stone Treatment step 1) is the first step of this training and assessment curriculum. Its structure offers a unique opportunity to those who want to learn the basics of endoscopy. The EST Step 2 (s2) is the subsequent step, with focus on treatment of urinary stones (dormia extraction, laser fragmentation,…)

Successful completion of the exam after a step will allow you to proceed to the next step of the training.
