Βρίσκεστε εδώ : ESOT Congress 2021 - Programme highlights [24|06]
   

 

Dear colleagues,
As we step closer to the biennial 20th ESOT Congress, browse through our weekly congress highlights newsletter and find out about some of the top sessions on offer across our five domains.

 

From candlelight to rocket science: The journey of transplantation

[01 September 2021 | 11:45 - 13:15]

The 'race' between biological and mechanical replacement of organs remains a key factor and a moving target in our field that deserves a spotlight. The key aspect for artificial organs in this context is the availability and long-term outcome. While the mechanical function of an organ (heart) can be easily replaced with artificial organs, replacing the biological functions is rather more difficult to achieve. Biological organ replacement is limited by organ availability and the other hope for the future is rapid development in repairing of damaged organs. In this session, we focus on the current and future options for implantable artificial organs, as well as applying organ regeneration into clinical practice.

Tracks: Cells | Cross-organ

 

Transplant organs of the future

[30 August 2021 | 11:45 - 13:15]


The ongoing development of biological and engineering techniques will lead to the availability of novel types of organs for transplantation. In this session, four such potential state-of-the-art organ transplants will be presented.

Domain: Regenerative medicine
Tracks: Cells | Cross-organ | Young professionals

 

A 360-degree view of risk

[29 August 2021 | 14:00 - 15:30]


The risk:benefit question is the basis of all decision making in transplantation. In this session, the question of risk will be examined from the perspective of key stakeholders; namely healthcare professionals, patients and the general public. It will also consider how the practice of defensive medicine plays into decision making from an ethical perspective.

Domain: Valued-based care
Tracks: Nursing and health sciences | Transplant coordinators | Patients' perspective | Risk

 

Yes we can! How to start a DCD programme

[30 August 2021 | 11:45 - 13:15]


Ensuring success in donation after circulatory death (DCD) programmes depends on multiple aspects. We will explore how to involve stakeholders and obtain their buy-in, as well as legal and professional challenges and how to overcome them. We will also discuss the more practical issues of setting-up logistics, policies, SOPs, and tasks. Additionally, we will also take a look at facing challenging scenarios, from both a clinical and surgical perspective.

Ethical conduct of clinical research in donation and transplantation during end-of-life care

[31 August 2021 | 08:00 - 09:30]


Ethical concerns about the conduct of human research during end of life care have long been recognized as a potential deterrent or barrier to the conduct of valuable research. In this session, which is a part of broad Think Tank, we will present the preliminary findings from survey of clinician researchers and human research ethics committees exploring real experiences and/or hypothetical concerns relating to the ethical conduct of research relating to organ donation and transplantation during end-of-life care. We will aim to provide guidance for the ethical conduct to ultimately reduce barriers of this vital research.

Domain: Valued-based care
Tracks: Ethics, law and psychosocial | Cross-organ | Transplant coordinators

 

Children are not small adults: The conundrum of scarce evidence

[31 August 2021 | 14:45 - 16:15]


Frequently in paediatric solid organ transplantation, patient management is extrapolated from adult practice. However, children are not just small adults as the surgical approach is challenging, and effects of immunosuppressive therapy in the developing immune system of children needs to be considered. Paediatric experts in the field will tackle topics such as graft size matching and early post-operative management, and they will critically review long-term outcomes. Furthermore, the role of resilience in transition among adolescent transplant patients is addressed within this Joint Session with the International Paediatric Transplant Association (IPTA).

Domain: Present and future transplant practice
Tracks: Kidney | Liver | Heart | Lungs | Paediatric

 

This webinar is addressed to the multi-professional team, but specifically physicians involved in long-term follow-up.
