The SSAT "Challenges after Anatomy-Altering Abdominal Surgery" webinar was hosted by SSAT PG/CME Committee and was presented live as a webinar on July 29, 2021. Watch the webinar and view a copy of all the presenters slides at SSAT.com.
Many patients present significant anatomical challenges after preceding surgeries (e.g. bariatric surgery) that may make subsequent "standard" treatments difficult if not impossible. These situations require prudence, creativity and skills. The goal of this session is to objectively discuss appropriate steps to select in such patients the best options for safe and successful management. It will further delineate criteria when to continue managing them locally as opposed to referring them to expert centers.
