Attendees will become familiar with surgical aspects of conventional, laparoscopic, robotic and endoscopic surgery of the foregut. In addition, they will acquire in depth information related to the diagnosis and management of disease processes of the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver and biliary tree. The program will review complex case scenarios and complications after Foregut procedures. Abdominal wall hernias, fistulas and the use of the vacuum assisted closure (VAC) will be presented. Attendees will analyze the management of complications including anastomotic leak and enterocutaneous fistulas. We will review complex techniques utilized by experts for conversions, revisions and reversals of bariatric procedures. The 2nd Annual International Congress of Fluorescent Guided Imaging Surgery is focusing on the new era of research on near infrared (NIR) imaging. The concept is based on the utilization of infrared light as a tool to guide surgery. This unique course will offer updated and better understanding of the novel technique. Our goal is to foster the exchange of information and ideas on fluorescence imaging and its applications in surgery. You will have the opportunity to meet worldwide leaders in near infrared techniques and follow their presentations live. Biliary tract, new approaches in cancer stratification by using NIR imaging on sentinel lymph nodes, prevention of anastomotic leaks with perfusion testing, and tumor margins and localization are one of many topics that may capture your interest.
