With the theme “Meet the Experts: Surgical Approaches to VATS Lobectomy", the Congress will focus on the various aspects of the VATS lobectomies.
The two-day programme of the congress will offer us a whole range of live-surgery sessions, refreshers on all relevant scientific and operational topics in VATS lobectomies. More importantly, this meeting provides to surgeons the opportunity to interact and exchange experiences with each other.
Furthermore, building on the experiences of previous masters and congresses and in line with the general theme of the congress, particular attention will be paid to both the young and future generations of thoracic surgeons.
I am pleased to host this Congress, and I do hope that you will be able to disseminate the announcement of this congress as widely as possible and that you will also be able to attend and contribute to his success.
