This congress aims to give a comprehensive review and update about living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) and advanced hepatobiliary surgery.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
– To learn the liver transplantation community about the actual state of LDLT.This meeting is also meant to foster the development of LDLT in the Western world and so to expand it’s usage especially in the field of hepatobiliary oncology. Indeed LDLT represents the only modality to allow a substantial increase of liver allograft pool.
– To improve technical skills of every hepatobiliary surgeon in relation to biliary and especially vascular recontructions.
– To sensitize hepatobiliary surgeons for the potential of liver transplantation in the field of oncology
Update the knowledge about:
LDLT and extended liver surgery · different types of living donor hepatectomy and alternative transplantation techniques · extended liver resection surgery by applying techniques of LDLT and LT · implementation of modern technology in liver transplantation and surgery · learn about ethical problems in LDLT and LT · the advantages and disadvantages of respectively LDLT/LT and liver resection in the treatment of primary and secondary hepatobiliary tumors · management of postoperative problems in both donor and recipient · management of unexpected vascular and biliary problems in LDLT and LT.
EACCME and Belgian accreditation for categories 4 and 6 (Ethics) have been requested.
The international Living Donor Liver Transplantation Group (iLDLTG) and the Belgian Section for Hepatobiliary-pancreatic Surgery (BSHBPS) are happy to confirm that the 5thInternational Congress of Living Donor Liver Transplantation Group and 21st Postgraduate Course of the BSHBPS will be a HYBRID symposium, that will address the needs for continued medical education in the fields of LDLT and advanced liver surgery, this in the background of the ongoing, hopefully fading (!), global Covid-pandemic.
The joint meeting will consist of a two-day, onsite as well as virtual, conference that will be delivered by leading global experts in the field from both Eastern and Western hemispheres.
