A multi-society State-of–the-Art Consensus Conference on Prevention of Bile Duct Injury During Cholecystectomy will take place at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center (Seaport Ballroom) in Boston, Massachusetts on Saturday, October 20, 2018, immediately prior to the 2018 ACS Clinical Congress. The conference, jointly hosted by SAGES, SSAT, AHPBA, IHPBA, and the European Association of Endoscopic Surgeons (EAES), is expected to attract general surgeons, GI, HPB, community, and international surgeons, and is open to the public.

International experts will convene to focus on management strategies and techniques surgeons can employ to reduce the incidence of this complication across the entire spectrum of gallstone disease, with the goal of establishing best practices and improving patient safety for this common operation. Attendees will participate in the discussions and voting on recommendations. The consensus conference proceedings will be used to generate practice guidelines manuscripts for publication in major surgical journals. Other topics the conference will focus on include:

  • Bile Duct Injury Prevention and Anatomic Identification Techniques (e.g., critical view of safety, cholangiography)
  • Biliary Injury and Disease Factors (e.g., acute cholecystitis)
  • Biliary Injury and Alternative Surgical Techniques
  • Biliary Injury Prevention and Surgeon Educational Factors
  • Management of Bile Duct Injury
