HPB Rio is back in 2019. Updated and improved in its third edition, the meeting will be held in the historic colonial town of Paraty, Rio de Janeiro. The focus of this edition will be immersion in the treatment of diseases of the pancreas, one of the arms of HPB surgery. For 3 consecutive days, attendees will have the opportunity to informally interact with renowed international and national experts in pancreatic surgery, through discussions, videos and clinical cases. We will objectively cover the latest approaches to issues that surgeons face on an everyday basis. We will exchange experiences to learn how our peers deal with their cases. International guest speakers will present their step by step approach to surgeries by providing tips and technical details and showing their expertise in complications management. Our partner companies will also be present, showcasing their technological solutions. The exchange of information and experience will be intense and frequent during the event and will then spread throughout Brasil, benefiting patients everywhere. Your participation is of great importance for the success of our meeting. We look forward to seeing you in Paraty in May next year.
