7th Swiss Trauma & Acute Care Surgery Days 2018

Ladies and Gentleman,

On March 16-17, 2018 the ‘7th SWISS TRAUMA & ACUTE CARE SURGERY (STACS) DAYS’ will take place at Bern University Hospital, Switzerland. This interdisciplinary two day trauma, resuscitation and emergency surgery meeting will be an update of the newest evidence in trauma and resuscitation (day 1) and non-trauma emergency surgery care (day 2).

Trauma and acute non-traumatic surgical emergencies do not respect anatomical borders and are both associated with profound systemic pathophysiological changes. Therefore, the 7th STACS days have been established as an interdisciplinary event, taking into account both, trauma and non-trauma surgical emergencies.

Best regards,
Your STACS Organizing Committee

PD Dr. Beat Schnüriger and Prof. Dr. Aristomenis Exadaktylos

and Advisory Scientific Committee

Dr. Tobias Haltmeier and Prof. Dr. Marius Keel
