About 19th liveSURGE….

The faculty included Dr. Hans Joachim Schafers from Homburg University, Dr Laurent de Kerchove from Brussels, Belgium, Dr. Christopher W Baird from Boston Children’s Hospital, USA and Prof. K Chandrasekaran from Mayo Clinic, USA. Eight cases were operated and live transmission was done to the venue, The Residency Towers. The 19th workshop drew interest from all over the country and abroad from countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Japan and Australia. We had them come, participate and learn during the two days of the academic feast.

We had the highest number of registered delegates – 256. The workshop saw active deliberations over 2 days. The highlight of the workshop was to create new aortic valve using the Ozaki technique which Dr. Christopher Baird from Boston demonstrated. There was also a breakfast session on the second day morning addressing the congenital surgeons where Dr. Christopher Baird talked about his Boston experience. A dry lab on Ozaki procedure was organized on the second day evening between 3pm – 5pm and saw 25 attendees.

The social night was well-attended, and we had a talk by Mr. Ramesh Ponnusamy on “Run for your life” and by a stand-up comedy show by Mr. Avinash Agarwal. All the patients operated in the workshop did well. With the addition of the joint workshop that was done along with All India Institute of Medical Science in 2016 on CTEPH, we completed 20 workshops in 2020.
