American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Session Code: PS305
Title: Controversies and the Appropriate Incorporation of Emerging Technologies in Multidisciplinary Treatment of Liver and Pancreatic Cancer
Date and Time of Session: Wednesday, October 25: 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Description: Advances in technology and innovation are key drivers to move clinical practice forward. Novel treatment modalities have emerged in the surgical management of liver and pancreas cancer including minimally invasive surgery (MIS), associating liver partition and portal vein ligation (ALPPS) for staged hepatectomy, and irreversible electroporation (IRE). As these techniques are developed and promoted, surgeons need to assess their efficacy and safety and introduce them into practice carefully. Key questions addressed by the panel will include: Optimal introduction of these novel techniques into clinical practice? Participation in current and future clinical trials and device registries? Challenges of adopting novel treatment modalities in the United States and internationally?
