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

Session Code: PS124
Title: Latin America Day (Spanish)
Date and Time of Session: Monday, October 23: 2:30 pm - 5:45 pm
Location: San Diego Convention Center - Room: 6D
Description: The first part of this session will cover hernia repair. Hernia repair is an increasingly common operation worldwide. Ventral hernias, especially the recurrent ones, represent a challenge for the general surgeons with new techniques available and different surgical approaches. The routine use of mesh for primary inguinal hernias with so many new products on the market makes it obligatory to review this topic and give an update of the results. Robotics in the developed countries are becoming a reality and the results should be compared with the traditional laparoscopic or open techniques. The second part of the session will focus on Colon surgery, new trends on the management of complicated Diverticular diseases, review of Sigmoid Volvulus by an expert from South America where the disease is very common, the use and advantages of Robotic surgery for malignant colon surgery and an update on Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) and Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery (TEM) resection for early malignant diseases.
