Professor Andreas Obermair, is a leading RANZCOG accredited Certified Gynaecological Oncologist (CGO). He is a full Professor at the University of Queensland and leads the Queensland Centre for Gynaecological Cancer (QCGC) Research. He trained with Dr Tony McCartney, the inventor of the McCartney tube.
The McCartney tube is a surgical device that is instrumental to performing a Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH). It maintains the pneumoperitoneum during a laparoscopic procedure and allows surgeons to complete the entire operation laparoscopically; it even allows gynaecological surgeons to suture the vagina laparoscopically once the uterus has been removed.
Professor Obermair recently recorded this video to simplify the teaching of laparoscopic vaginal vault closure. He kindly allowed us to share this video.
