Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We are delighted to invite you to the 3rd Verona International Expert Meeting that will take place in Verona on September 19-20.
Also this year the meeting will be divided into two sessions: the IASGO and it-IHPBA postgraduate course and the Expert Meeting.
The topic of the meeting will be “Hepatocellular Carcinoma: New landscapes and Horizons”. We are proud that the meeting will have the endorsement of both the IASGO and the It-IHPBA.
In the last decade, several new technologies and medical therapies have been introduced to modify, improve and expand the curative options for HCC patients. During the meeting, international experts in the medical and surgical management of HCC will present the current landscape for the treatment of HCC.
The Verona International Expert Meeting is an exciting event to attend and discuss the latest scientific advances in the treatment of HCC. Different disease stages and clinical scenarios will be discussed exploring the most up-dated treatments, the efficacy of the new target therapies, and the impact of the new technologies.
The meeting wants to include all the physicians involved in the clinical management of HCC patients as surgeons, hepatologists, gastroenterologist, radiologists, oncologists, radiotherapists as well as specialist in infectious disease and nuclear medicine. The personalized treatment of each single HCC patient requires and is not possible without the participation of different specialists in a multidisciplinary setting.
The IASGO and It-IHPBA postgraduate course titled “Complications in HPB Surgery: How to Prevent, How to Manage” will take place in the morning of September 19.
During the postgraduate course, national and international experts will present their experience and debate on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the complications of HPB surgery. As well known, HPB surgery is still burdened by high incidence of complications associated with prolonged hospital stay and post-operative mortality. For this reason, this postgraduate course is addressed to surgeon who wants to increase their knowledge on this fundamental topic for the HPB surgery.
