We are fully booked!
The course is based on lectures and guided interactive sessions on the topic. It has the aim of gathering senior trainees with top international experts. Senior oncoplastic surgeons who wish to improve their skills are welcome as well.
The audience will be directly involved in the scientific program with participation to interactive talks, to a simulation session on pre-operative planning on living models and a discussion of pre-post op cases with senior members of the faculty.
Video lectures on advanced oncoplastic techniques are also part of the program.
The interactive talks include a lecture by a senior speaker (20’) followed by comments from other members of the faculty (40’). Dr. Rocco and Dr. Catanuto will nurture the discussion with clinical cases, personal experience and critical questions. Participants will be directly involved and invited to discuss their own experience and offer solutions.
The Teaching pre-operative surgical planning session will be lead by Maurizio Nava. It will be based on simulation of markings on living models including complex cases with failed surgical results.
Call for abstracts: session “Young guns” meet the experts on Multi-Disciplinary-Team setting
In order to maximize educational opportunities the Faculty of the Etna Meeting and G.RE.T.A. are eager to invite participants to discuss a pre-op/post-op clinical case in a simulated multidisciplinary discussion.
The clinical case should be submitted as an abstract (not structured max length 250 words) including any detail relevant to the discussion : past medical history-triple assessment- planned surgical treatment/timing- pathology report – proposed adjuvant treatments (the last two only for post-op cases). An updated EU format curriculum vitae is required.
Four abstracts will be selected for discussion. This will last 5′ and will include a brief description of the clinical case and the open challenges related to it. Four slides are allowed including diagnostic imaging, pathology slides, relevant anthropometric photography.
