Welcome at the 6th International Video Workshop
on Radical Surgery in Gynecologic Oncology website

Welcome letter

Dear colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the

6th International Video Workshop (IVW)
on Radical Surgery in Gynaecological Oncology
endorsed by ESGO

which will be held in Prague, April 26–28, 2018

Those of you, who have visited IVW in the previous years, need no introduction. For those who have not made it to Prague yet, the format of the meeting is based on video presentations and it focuses on practical aspects of radical surgery. Thanks to the video format participants can see dozens of radical procedures within three days and it enables them to compare techniques shown by surgeons representing different institutions.

A unique atmosphere is created by all participants´ common interest in surgical treatment of gynecological cancer.

The program in 2018 will include discussions on controversial topics, a few state of the art lectures from the leading experts and newly also interactive tumor boards focused on clinical management. Video sections will deal with both standard procedures such as radical hysterectomy or pelvic lymphadenectomy as well as more unique extended pelvic resections or liver resections. Part of the program will be composed of the communications from participants selected from abstracts.

The meeting is traditionally endorsed by the European Society of Gynecological Oncology (ESGO) and selected presentations will appear in the ESGO E-Academy.

Looking forward to meeting you in Prague!

David Cibula
IVW 2018 chairman
