DESCRIPTION
Dear Colleagues,

We are please to welcome you to the 1st International Conference about Sublobar resections for lung cancer that will take place at the Institute Montsouris on the 11th and 12th of January 2018.

The treatment of early-stage lung carcinomas is rapidly evolving. During the last years, we have progressively moved from pulmonary lobectomies – considered until recently as the gold standard – to various treatments including stereotaxic radiotherapy, radiofrequency and sublobar resections. At a time where lung screening programs are progressively set up, the management of ground glass opacities and early stage tumors will become a major issue for thoracic oncologists and surgeons.

By nature, thoracic surgeons are convinced that surgical resection offers the best compromise in terms of pathological diagnosis, tumor staging and survival. But surgeons are also aware they must reduce the morbidity of their procedures.

This explains the recent interest in sublobar resections whose rate has dramatically raised in high-volume centers all over the world. As this evolution arises at a time when thoracoscopic and robotic techniques are also spreading and developing, most surgeons agree that pulmonary segmentectomies should be done – whenever possible – without opening the chest. However, performing a thoracoscopic anatomical segmentectomy poses unique technical problems and is highly challenging.

It is this challenge that has encouraged us to organize the 1st international conference focusing on all different aspects of sublobar resections for lung cancer, from indications to preoperative planning and advanced surgical techniques, without omitting to look at the forthcoming technologies.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Paris.
