Liver resection using Erbe hybrid technology

IHPBA Workshop April 20th, 2016 in Sao Paulo

IHPBA 2016 - Liver resection using Erbe hybrid technology

Waterjet surgery has been successfully used in medicine for many years. Tissue structures are dissected selectively and gently by hydro-dissection. Blood vessels and bile ducts remain intact, up to a certain pressure. Thereafter, vessels may be treated according to their size. Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) using hydro-dissection technique has become a standard in North America with more than 100 installations. Less thermal damages in the donor site is one of the major benefits described by the users.

We will be offering you the opportunity to acquaint yourself with the hydro-dissection technique in liver surgery by working on animal models. The international participants and tutors will benefit from the exchange of experience.

The workshops will take place on April 20th from 7:30 am – 12:15 pm and 1:00 pm – 5:45 pm.

The number of participants is limited to 15 persons for each workshop session.
The course will be held in English.

We look forward to welcoming you in Sao Paulo!
