Welcome letter

Dear Colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you to the 6th Mediterranean Transplantation Anesthesiology and Simulation Symposium (MedTASS), to be held in the premises of Grand Hotel Piazza Borsa (Palermo), on 5-6 April 2019.

During the symposium, local, national, and international experts will describe the recent advancements in anesthesiology and perioperative medicine in the field of organ transplantation and major abdominal and cardiothoracic surgery. Workshops on difficult clinical cases delivered by renowned experts will allow participants to have an active role during the problem based learning discussion (PBLD).
The scientific works will also include medical simulation sessions, providing critical scenarios of real-life clinical activity, both in the operating room and in intensive care unit. Participants will be asked to take clinical decisions as if managing a crisis in real time, making the simulated event extremely plausible and accurate.

We hope to meet you in Palermo,

Dr. Antonio Arcadipane
Dr. Raymond M. Planinsic
