Management of Colorectal procedures using GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement - Material Science and Inflammation

Valuable alternative for complex soft tissue reinforcement 
Intended for use in the reinforcement of soft tissue, GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is a uniquely designed web of biocompatible synthetic polymers that is gradually absorbed by the body.

Its 3D matrix of open, highly interconnected pores facilitates cell infiltration and tissue generation, leaving no permanent material behind.

Speaker: A/Prof Cherry Koh

Artificial Intelligence in Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy continues to allow earlier detection of colon cancer and its precursor lesions with a resulting reduced rate of colon cancer death. Given the tragedy of interval colon cancer formation and the expense of colonoscopy any attempt to improve the yield and accuracy of colonoscopy is worthwhile. Artificial intelligence is already widely used in many aspects of daily life and other areas of medicine. Polyp detection and diagnosis in colonoscopy is an area where AI is already having an impact. Computer-assisted detection of polyps may allow even excellent colonoscopists to improve their adenoma detection rate and thus reduce their rate of interval cancer. Yet, with all technologies, there are potential disadvantages such as colonoscopist distraction and the fact that AI is potentially only detecting additional "small" adenomas.

Intraoperative quality measures to reduce anastomotic leaks

Anastomotic leak is a multi-factorial complication where risk factors including surgeon and device handling need to be addressed by the whole surgical team. This session will discuss some of the measures that can be taken to improve outcome and possibly reduce anastomotic leakages.

Speakers: Prof Vicente Pla-Marti, Dr Ron Landmann
Chair: Prof Tim Eglinton
