In liver surgery, the operative decision making and the surgical performance are significantly improved by using the ultrasound.
Therefore an adequate background in ultrasound should be in the armamentarium of any liver surgeon, and for that the educational offer is crucial. For this reason we have thought to establishes courses where surgeons could be introduced to the intraoperative use of ultrasound.
Introductory lecture, and live demo with skills feature these short and intense courses with the intent to promote the use of ultrasound during liver surgery by demonstrating its impact on the surgical strategy both by means of a better staging, but moreover by providing otherwise unsuitable technical solutions which have a direct impact in the patients management.
Better understanding of ultrasound and moreover acquisition of the bases for those skills indispensable for optimizing the intraoperative use of ultrasound is the mission of ESSU course, which should allow present and next generation of surgeons to feel the way ultrasound is changing their surgical practice, and to perform safer and more effective surgical procedures.
