PROF. YIENGPRUGSAWAN IS ONE OF THE SPEAKERS WHO ARE GOING TO MEET WITH YOU ON 9-12 SEPTEMBER
- A few words about the topic of your lecture: what is it about? Why this topic is important to discuss?
1: Anatomical approach using phrenoesophageal ligament as a landmark for robotic hiatal surgery

1- Phrenoesophageal ligament (PEL) is a distinctive and important anatomy that is often mistaken or misidentified during hiatal surgery. In the era of minimally invasive surgery, correct identification and dissection of this structure may help to improve the outcomes of surgery in the hiatal area for both benign and malignant situations. In the presentation I will show detailed PEL anatomy in both normal hiatus and herniated hiatus conditions and explain how to correctly enter the planes using video clips edited from robotic hiatal procedures.

2: Robotic pancreatobiliary surgery - current status

2- Although not as popular as robotic colorectal or gastric surgery, robotic pancreatobiliary (PB) surgery has slowly but surely gained acceptance among PB surgeons. Its clinical applications range from simple enucleation to a highly complex pancreatoduodenectomy with or without vascular reconstruction. My presentation will focus on the current status of robotic PB surgery, specifically on technical aspects and outcomes.
- What are your expectations from visiting Moscow during the Congress?
Since this is my first time in Russia, besides sharing my experience with and learning from other colleagues, I am looking forward to seeing Moscow from a tourist's perspective. I hope to gain not only surgical knowledges but also cultural experience while there.
