The Sociedad Boliviana de Cirugia Cardiaca, Toracica y Vascular has an upcoming conference this October, the XXIX Congreso Latinoamericano de cirugia vascular y angiologia (ALCVA). While much of the conference focuses on cardiovascular topics, there is one day reserved for thoracic surgery topics.
I am attending in hopes of recruiting some of La Paz’s thoracic surgeons into our high altitude project, and will be giving a presentation entitled, “Las verdades esenciales y falsedades sobre el manejo del paciente diabético” on October 6, 2012.
As part of this, I will be bringing readers coverage of this event. If you are going to be Santa Cruz, and you want to talk thoracics -contact me.
