VAB hands-on WORKSHOP for Radiologists, Breast Surgeons
With the experienced prof. Joerg Heil, Heidelberg University Hospital, Germany

After the hands-on workshop you will understand why is a vacuum biopsy better than simple core biopsy?
• A vacuum biopsy allows you to remove much more damaged tissue and look for them to get a more accurate response;
• A simple biopsy may not provide information on the early stage of cancer, - the vacuum will show it;
• When detecting a maladaptive, for example fibroadenoma, vacuum biopsy needle can be removed during the same procedure and without additional intervention;
• This is a little invasive procedure, the needle is inserted too small - only 2-3 millimetres - into a cut in the skin, which is then not necessary to sew, it quickly dissolves, there is no scar, the procedure itself is outpatient, after which it can be returned directly to the house.

14,30-15,10 Peristomal skin problems and potential treatment options (40min)

Hall Auditorium 312

Presenter: Liudmila Vitkauskiene

Occupation: nurse, stoma therapist

Work place: Nacionalinis Vėžio Institutas, Vilnius

Summary:

Lesions of skin surrounding stoma are the most common complication after the formation of stoma. According to an international review and clinical trials, every third person with a stoma has his skin affected during the postoperative period (3 weeks). Most often lesions of skin are observed by persons having urostomy (57%) or ileostomy (57%). The problem is that only a small percentage of patients realize that lesions of skin surrounding stoma are a complication and they need to seek help from professionals. However, 80% of patients think that these lesions are unavoidable, they suffer pain and do not want to seek help, or they treat by themselves. During the report, you will see how to properly treat a stoma and its surrounding skin, how to maintain a healthy skin and prevent these violations. You will be introduced to stoma care products and get instructions for their use. There will be some practical recommendations.
