WELCOME ADDRESS FROM THE CONGRESS PRESIDENT

                                                                                                                      May 1 , 2020

Dear Members, Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

It is my great pleasure and honor to invite you to particpate in the 5th International Congress of the iLDLT Group which will take place in Brussels  October 15 (Friday) and 16 (Saturday), 2021. The meeting will be organised in collaboration with the Liver group of the BTS and the HBP Section of the RBSS.

This biennial meeting follows the very successful previous ones, which took place in Seoul (twice), Dallas and Kaohsiung. As the Western world still hesitates to embrace this therapeutic modality, the ILDLTG council judged it opportune to “export” the congress to Europe.

The program focuses on the enormous technical advances that have been made during the last two decades in this field of transplantation (indeed “versatility” is key to be successful) as well as on the cross-fertilization between living donor liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery.

The sessions dedicated to advanced liver surgery (eg. in vivo and ex-vivo liver surgery), to the implementation of modern technologies (eg. laparoscopic and robotic liver surgery) and to hepatobiliary oncology (eg. which patient to resect, which to transplant) clearly ilustrate this idea.

The congress therfore aims to capture the interest of both transplant and non-transplant communities in order to foster also progresses in the treatment of benign and malignant hepatobiliary diseases.

During this two day meeting, many of the world’s most reknowned, Western as well as Eastern, leaders in the fields of (living donor) liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery will raise the interest for and the scientific content of this meeting. A unique occasion not to miss!

LDLT is a matter of ethical debates. For this reason accreditation has also been asked for category 6 (2 hours)..

The iLDLTG Council hopes to welcome many of you next year in Brussels,”the heart of Europe”.

Mark your calendar already now!... and raise the interest of your, especially younger, colleagues to attend the meeting.

Very sincerely yours,

Prof.em.Jan LERUT                                               Prof.Chao-Long CHEN

Congress Chair                                                       President iLDLT
