The 4th National Congress on Diastasis of the Rectus Abdominis Muscles will take place in Venice on December 1st. It will focus on diagnosis, legal aspects and a comparative analysis of medical and surgical treatments.
The congress will take place in Sala degli Angeli within the complex of the “SS. Giovanni e Paolo” Hospital in Venice. The central topic will be abdominal diastasis, which is a condition that not only poses an aesthetic concern but often negatively impacts the patient’s quality of life in terms of both physical and psychological health.
The objective of this congress is not only to provide a comprehensive overview of key elements related to diastasis; it is much more. In facts, it wants to to update and delve into parameters for accurate diagnosis, comparing medical and surgical treatments; but also talking about prevention and management of post-operative complications .
The initiative is made possible also thanks to the non-conditioning contribution of Revée. It supports this event where industry professionals will share their knowledge and expertise on various aspects of abdominal diastasis.
The event is open to a maximum of 150 participants and is aimed at Medical Surgeons (specialities: General Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Physiatry, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Radiology, Nutrition Science, and Dietetics), Biologists, Dietitians, Physiotherapists, Nurses, Midwives and Psychologists.
Program and useful information
The program includes various scheduled appointments, starting with a main lecture on “Five years follow-up after surgical repair of abdominal rectus diastasis. A prospective randomised study”. This is followed by a session focusing on regulatory proposals regarding diastasis of the rectus abdominal muscles, covering everything in terms of “know” and “do” about diastasis. As well as indications, results, and complications of autologous and heterologous techniques. There will also be a focus on personalised surgical treatments for different clinical scenarios, autologous surgical approach in pathological diastasis, and lipoabdominoplasty in diastasis correction. The session continues with an in-depth look at the use of absorbable meshes in diastasis surgery and the impact of the week-surgery model on the patient’s outcome with rectus muscle diastasis.
It will be a main lecture on “Research and clinics on a new proposal for abdominal stretch marks prevention and therapy“, to kick off the afternoon events. The afternoon session will focus on a range of topics. From laparoscopic reconstruction of the abdominal midline to the Tesar technique in diastasis and midline repair. An international multicenter study on 259 patients with THT, analysing clinical and functional results after 2 years. Topics will also cover mommy makeovers, surgical treatment of recurrences and umbilical hernias. Without forgetting osteopathic approach pre and post-intervention, pre and post-surgical rehabilitation pathways, and the role of patient associations as a bridge between needs and assistance.
