125th German Society of Surgery Congress
The 125th Congress of the German Society of Surgery and the annual Congress of the German Society of Visceral Surgery (DVGC) in late April, examined the facts behind evidence-based medicine (EbM) under the banner Surgical Medicine - from Empiricism to Evidence, and also evaluated current opportunities in hospitals, science and research.
Two important meetings, held jointly with the new Surgical Working Group for Peri-operative Medicine within the German Society of Surgery, focused on peri-operative therapy in surgery.
The European Topic chosen by the DGVC was The Differentiated Therapy of Rectal Carcinoma, drew in international experts in the field, some of whom became honorary DGVC members. ‘In this area in particular we have gained new findings through prospective and randomised studies that will have an impact on our therapeutic strategies. The sessions on Certification Procedures and Minimum Quantities were closely linked to these topics,’ said DGVC President 2007/2008, Professor Ferdinand Köckerling.
