    On 29-30 of November, the International transfer center of innovative medical technologies, based on the Irkutsk Regional Cancer Center, will host a second International master-class “Treatment of Hepatobiliary malignancies”.

    Such malignancies include cholangiocellular and hepatocellular liver cancer, biliary ducts cancer, pancreatic cancer.

Their representors will come to Irkutsk for the purpose of exchanging new treatment techniques and experience.

Beate Rau, Hauke Lang, Bernhard Gebauer, Fritz Klein, Mariane Sinn, Robert Öllinger, Ignace de Hingh, Moritz Schmelzle and others are some of the participants.

Shumakov Federal Research Center of Transplantology and Artificial Organs”, SRC Burnasyan FMBC FMBA and 1st Moscow medical university.

    Participants of the master-class will be introducing not only their theoretical materials, but practices as well. For example, Moritz Schmelzle will perform laparoscopical hemihepatectomy at one of the operating rooms of the Cancer Center. This type surgeries, done by the best medics of the world – is a distinctive feature of the International Center events.
