Just two months to go until the 5th annual Abdominal Wall Reconstruction Europe

has become an essential event for those with an interest in abdominal wall reconstruction, with over 300 of the world’s leading general, plastic
and aesthetic surgeons
converging for three days of information exchange and networking.
AWR Europe represents an international community where world-leading faculty can create a forum with participants from around the world to share ideas and challenge the core principles of good surgical practice.
A key theme running throughout the programme is the importance of the multidisciplinary team
and the creation of AWR units
which will help us to manage these complex patients more effectively. Talks on perioperative optimisation
and management of complications
will combine with practical approaches to managing the open abdomen
and abdominal compartment syndrome
. There will also be detailed discussions on anatomy
with sessions on transverse abdominus release
and vascularised reconstruction
, along with innovative talks on aesthetics including abdominoplasty, diastasis repair
and component separation
Over the past 4 years, AWR Europe has covered the increasing collaboration of general and plastic surgery disciplines which has led to rapid advances in techniques and technologies aid complex hernia repair.
This 5th edition promises to reaffirm the basics of good practice, deliver a wealth of practical advice on how to improve your practice and expose you to new techniques at the forefront of surgical science.
We hope that you can join us next February.
