New Techniques, Technologies, Approaches and Tips in Radical Surgery
Held from April 21st to 23rd, 2016, the Vienna House Diplomat Hotel in Prague hosted the 5th International Video Workshop on Radical Surgery in Gynecological Oncology under the auspices of Prof. David Cibula from the Gynecologic Oncology Centre and it was organized by GUARANT International.
The workshop was endorsed by the ESGO (the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology). The meeting followed the previous International Video Workshops that were organized in Prague in the past. The entire event was very successful with more than 400 participants representing European, American, Asian as well as African countries and it was also inspired by other national or local meetings which used the same format. Within the three days of the conference more than 400 delegates from all around the world met together. “It fills me with joy that surgeons all over the world have a deep interest in radical surgery and seek knowledge and inspiration.” said Prof. David, the 5th IVW Chairman.
The main aim of the meeting was to focus on manual skills, compare surgical techniques and different approaches as well as demonstrate practical tips and recommendations in surgery. Moreover, this year and for the first time, key opinion leaders debated on controversial topics.
Fifteen invited speakers prepared their videos with tips and tricks, new advanced technologies and step-by-step demonstrations of their best techniques. However, it was not only the big names that made the program, it was also the dozens of videos and posters submitted to the program. This congress, in this way, truly gave the picture on how advanced our field is all over the world and where we are aiming to be.
