This workshop is designed to review state of the art information on the diagnosis and management of non-trauma GI & visceral emergencies. The symposium provides an ideal mix of the traditional standard of care principles with cutting edge, forward-moving practices. It explores issues related to resuscitation and surgical technique. The workshop runs theory in the morning sessions and hands-on sessions in the afternoon (5 intubated pigs, stations for laparoscopic exercises). The course provides in-depth and cutting-edge information in the field of gastrointestinal and visceral emergencies. The material presented will be exciting as well as readily assimilated and applied.


The course aim is to provide surgeons (in training or already board certified) with the information and skills needed for successful handling of nontraumatic visceral and GI emergencies from arrival in the emergency room through transfer for definitive treatment to the operating room, intensive care unit or ward, with detailed attention to the decision-making process as well as to relevant surgical skills and techniques.


The following goals will be pursued:

  1. Confront surgeons with different controversial scenarios
  2. Provide concrete answers from latest literature for questions emerging from these situations
  3. Develop skills to manage complicated issues
  4. Working with ICG and laparoscopic different approaches and techniques
