3rd ESO-ESSO Masterclass on Colorectal Cancer Surgery

30 ESCO credits

07.03.2015  -  12.03.2015

Warsaw, Poland

MASTERCLASS

Colon/colorectal cancer

Description

Chairs: T. Wiggers, NL - L. Påhlman, SE - P. Tekkis, UK


AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
Based on the knowledge of total mesocolon and total mesorectal surgey and imaging before the operation, after the Masterclass participants will be able to answer the 10 following questions:

• Is screening to be implemented?
• How does staging influence clinical decision making?
• Which information about genetics does influence treatment choices?
• Where do I damage the autonomic nerve plexus?
• How and when can I minimize the procedure?
• How do I position the patient for the perineal phase and perform a wide excision for low rectal cancers?
• How do I deal with the loss of a pelvic floor after a wide perineal resection and how do I correct a perineal hernia?
• How do I estimate the need of a defunctioning colostomy and how do I treat leakage of the anastomosis?
• How do I treat a patient with colorectal cancer and synchronous liver metastases?
• How do I balance the advantages and disadvantages of adjuvant treatment (numbers needed to treat)?


TEACHING FORMAT
The Masterclass offers plenary lectures regarding state-of-the-art clinical evaluation and treatments with reference to clinical guidelines and which will conclude in take-home messages.
Workshop Sessions in small groups will be organised in areas of decision making in complex cases.
Furthermore, participants will deliver case presentations within small groups and discuss these with the chairmen and faculty.
All participants will reside at the course venue and participation is compulsory throughout the course.
The Masterclass will be entirely in English and fluency in English is necessary for admission.


THE MASTERCLASS IS:
• A 5-day residential educational event
• Full immersion
• Clinically-oriented
• Multidisciplinary
• An international faculty of top experts will contribute to the programme
