World Symposium on Ergonomic Implants at Gardone, Italy

Between September 14th and 16th, the World Symposium on Ergonomic Implants took place at Gardone.

The meeting was organised by the company Motiva. The symposium was organised at the Grand Hotel Gardone at the shores of Lake Garda. The symposium was dedicated to new issues in breast surgery. The lectures were concerned with breast enlargement operations, repair operations following operations to enlarge breasts and with breast reconstruction. The topic of one of the sessions were new materials and new sensors that will be used for the production of implants. The most important session were lectures on immunology and bacteriology concerning reactions of the body to the implantation of foreign material. It is a sufficiently important topic to warrant interest by specialists from diverse fields. The session was headed by Dr Fabio Santanelli, world authority on implant immunology.
