Rectal Cancer Meeting Lisbon 2015

Rectal Cancer Meeting Lisbon 2015

25 and 26 of June | Hospital da Luz Auditorium

Course Directors: Carlos Vaz | Seon-Hahn Kim

 

Welcome to the Rectal Cancer Meeting 

Robotic TME / Transanal new techniques / RT and organ preservation / Live surgery

 

Treatment of rectal cancer has recently undergone huge scientific and technological advances!

The amazing technological evolution in radiotherapy and endoscopic transanal local excision techniques is now challenging radical surgery, including total mesorectal excision (TME), as an unavoidable solution. The newborn concepts of Complete Response and Organ Preservation may revolutionize the treatment of rectal cancer: they promise satisfactory oncological results with much better quality of life
outcomes!

Hereupon, radical surgery with strict adherence to the original idea of TME as first described by Bill Heald for over 35 years, is still the gold standard for the treatment of rectal cancer. But also in this field, major technological developments have happened, in particular with the advent and expansion of minimally invasive surgery: conventional laparoscopy, single port laparoscopy, transanal endoscopic surgery, robotic surgery and a variety of combinations of these. This has allowed a clear improvement of quality of life outcomes in patients undergoing radical surgery, not jeopardizing oncologic results – which, on the contrary, show also a trend to improve.

For the new robotic surgery systems, the challenging concept of interposing a digital interface between the surgeon and the patient opens up technical development prospects where the sky is the limit!

In the Rectal Cancer Meeting Lisbon 2015, a very special emphasis shall be given to minimally invasive surgery techniques (endoscopic, laparoscopic, robotic, transanal) and to the current role of radiotherapy in Organ Preservation and as a potentially curative option. In the second day, there will be a Live Robotic Surgery session.

The Rectal Cancer Meeting Lisbon 2015 shall be an exclusive forum driven by the aspiration of spread cutting edge technical evolution on the subject of rectal cancer. And we aim to bring together the most experienced and renowned experts of the world in a high quality, state-of-the-art conference.

We are very happy to welcome you in Lisbon!
