Aim of the Advanced Course

The ESSO Advanced Course “Management of HIPEC after CRS” aims to discuss evidence-based clinical decision-making in the management of primary and secondary peritoneal cancer and will offer a multidisciplinary programme combining both practical aspects and theoretical problems.

Technical and clinical approaches will be revisited and updated. Presentations will include the state of the art and latest advancements, videos with tips and tricks by the experts in the field, and case reports.

Participants will perform cytoreductive surgery in small groups in the wet lab using several new technical devices and supervision by the experts. Therefore the workshop is limited to a small number of participants (first come, first served basis).
