This symposium will provide a forum for non-surgical members of ANZGOSA to discuss issues that may not be covered adequately in the main program. It is representative of the commitment of the ANZGOSA board to the multidisciplinary nature of management of diseases of the oesophagus and stomach and the need for inclusion of all relevant disciplines within ANZGOSA activities.
This outstanding session will address the current major challenges in oesophago-gastric malignancy and particularly areas in which progress and change has been observed. Highly credentialed local and international presenters will provide an overview of the latest updates and future directions in management of oesophago-gastric malignancy.
We will lead with perspectives on leadership and advocacy from the President-Elect of the ASMBS Teresa LaMasters and hear about the expansion of Sleeve Plus procedures in Asia and around the world as alternatives to Gastric Bypass before local Authors present the Best of submitted Free Papers.
This session will address new patient management paradigms, in particular, Enhanced recovery after surgery and its role in the Australasian setting. Another presentation will cover the rapidly emerging concepts of sarcopaenia in oesophago-gastric malignancy and whether it is ready to be incorporated into routine clinical staging systems. The ANZGOSA free paper abstract scored highest will also be featured.
There will be two complementary and detailed presentations on the technical and physiological aspects of oesophageal reconstruction. Carel Le Roux from Dublin will detail physiological changes associated with reconstruction of the oesophagus. Jon Shenfine will provide an overview of the technical aspects of optimally constructing a conduit in oesophageal surgery.
With a focus on interdisciplinary care Arya Sharma will reflect on how COVID-19 has changed obesity management and Teresa LaMasters will drill down into how to maximise the benefits from interdisciplinary teams.
