Scientific Program as of December 20, 2017

 

Thursday, 4/26/2018                     3pm – 6pm

Opening Session - Global / Rural Surgery

The term “Global Surgery” encompasses a broad range of activities. With the population of the world quickly approaching 8 billion people, more than half of these individuals cannot access safe, affordable and timely surgical care and this includes right here in the United States. Over 200 million operations are performed worldwide every year, but there are an estimated 320 million surgeries annually that are not being performed. During this interactive session, participants will hear from individuals who have provided care to populations across the globe during humanitarian missions and attempted to address this tremendous need. Ethical dilemmas that are intrinsic to the sporadic practice of surgery in locations where certain treatment options may not otherwise be available will also be contemplated. Commonly encountered problems and potential solutions will be discussed. Details will also be provided to participants about a project being developed by the International College of Surgeons-US Section that will provide access to critical resource information to those individuals who are actively planning and participating in humanitarian activities.

Vascular Surgery Symposium 

Cirugia taurina” is the surgical discipline that treats lesions caused by bull horns.  These lesions have distinct features and are observed both in matadores gored during bullfights in the ring as well as in runners injured during events that take place through streets of towns and cities in Europe and Latin America. Less frequently, they are also observed in other local festivities involving bulls.

 

The purpose of the featured presentation in this session is to provide a brief introduction about the “Fiesta de los Toros” (The Festivities of the Bulls), their different forms both inside and outside the rings.  Dr. Leopoldo Fernandez Alonso from Spain will describe the minimal requirements needed to staff immediate response units in order to effectively treat these traumatic injuries that are often life-threatening. We will present our experience at the Pamplona bullfight ring and the Navarra Hospital in the management of patients with bull horn inflicted injuries during the famous festivities of “San Fermin” and the “running of the bulls” made famous in the US in part through the novels of Chicago native, Hemingway. We will review the features of these lesions, their frequent anatomic locations and the details of surgical management.

 

Other speakers in this session will provide information on the subjects indicated below.

Annual Ethics Workshop 

In the latter years of the 20th century the term bioethics was coined to denote the decision making and choices a physician needs to consider to practice in modern health care systems. Physicians in the 21st century are the first to practice under the never changing medical ethical codes established for millennia and a code imposed by the systems in which we live whether they be governmental, religious, or existential. In this 2-hour session we will explore how the 21st century physician deals with dichotomy that too often exists between his own “medical” ethic and the bioethical system in which he lives.
