THEORETICAL SESSION

LECTURE: What’s new in proctology over the last 20 years?

SESSION 1: RECTAL PROLAPSE AND OBSTRUCTED DEFECATION SYNDROME (ODS)    
  • How to treat a symptomatic complex rectocele?
  • Total rectal prolapse: Perineal Stapled Prolapse Resection (PSPR). When and why?
  • Stapled hemorrhoidopexy and Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection (STARR): do they still play a role?
  • Robotic vs laparoscopic ventral rectopexy: which approach wins the challenge?
  • Total rectal prolapse: transanal or abdominal approach? What does it depend on?
  • What do we know about the “Internal Delorme” procedure?
LECTURE: Anal fistula – A real head-scratcher

SESSION 2: ANAL FISTULA AND PILONIDAL DISEASE
  • Ligation of the Intersphincteric Fistula Tract (LIFT)
  • Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment (EPSiT)
  • Let’s talk about the seton: are we sure of its usefulness and effectiveness?
  • Mesenchymal Stem Cells (Cx601) for perianal Crohn’s disease: a new hope
  • Bascom and Gips procedures for pilonidal sinus
  • VAAFT procedure for complex anal fistulas and in Crohn’s disease
LECTURE: Don’t you believe that it would be necessary to change the fistula classification?

1.00 pm Lunch at the Institute

2.00 pm
LECTURE: Current strategy to treat the histologically undefined rectal polyps

SESSION 3: UNDEFINED RECTAL POLYPS
