In 2005, the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland initiated the category of
Designated Societies to provide a vehicle for national or international surgical and related
organisations to be recognised as having a particular relationship with the Association and
to be formally affiliated with ASGBI for mutual benefit. This may include the promotion of
each others’ Scientific Conferences, possible exchanges and Fellowships, and potential joint
meetings. The exact wording in the Association’s Memorandum and Articles is:
“The Council may from time to time resolve that one or more national or international
organisations be invited to be affiliated to the Association without payment of a fee and
thus to be recognised as having a particular relationship with the Association, often for
mutual benefit. Such organisations shall upon affiliation become Designated Societies
and at the discretion of the Council may be included in the Association’s mailings and
may be invited to be represented at the Association’s meetings upon such terms as the
Council shall decide”.
Bournemouth, 11th to 13th May 2011
INTERNATIONAL SURGICAL CONGRESS: 21st CENTURY SURGERY
DESIGNATED SOCIETIES
The first two Designated Societies were the British Journal of Surgery Society and General
Surgeons Australia, and we are delighted, this year, to confer Designated Society Status on
the Swedish Surgical Society.
The Association is very keen to forge similar reciprocal links with sister associations,
societies and Colleges around the world, and we are pleased to welcome representatives
from the following organisations to the 2011 International Surgical Congress:
British Journal
of Surgery
Society
New Zealand Association of General Surgeons
Association of
Surgeons of
India
General
Surgeons
Australia
Association of
Anaesthetists of
Great Britain
and Ireland
Association of Surgeons of South Africa
College of Surgeons
of East, Central and
Southern Africa
West African
College of
Surgeons
PARALLEL CONFERENCES
The British Intestinal Failure Alliance (BIFA) will be holding their Annual Scientific Meeting on Wednesday
11th May 2011 in the Bay View Suite at the Bournemouth International Centre. BIFA is a special interest
grouping within the British Association of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN), and it is hoped that
the BIFA scientific programme for the day will also be of interest to a wider surgical audience. Therefore,
delegates attending the ASGBI Congress are most welcome to attend BIFA sessions. The Association
extends a cordial welcome to Professor Jeremy Powell-Tuck (Chairman of BIFA) and his colleagues.
The United Kingdom Medical Students’ Association (UKMSA) is a new student-doctor collaboration,
which aims to unite over 40,000 medical students across the UK and provide them with the resources
they need to maximise their experience of university. ASGBI is, therefore, delighted that the UKMSA
will be holding its inaugural International Medical Student Conference on Wednesday 11th May 2011 in
the Purbeck Hall at the Bournemouth International Centre. Thus, we hope to welcome over 300
medical students to Bournemouth, and it is hoped that this will be one of the largest and most
prestigious single-day medical student conferences in Europe.
ASSOCIATION OF MILITARY SURGEONS
We are delighted that the Association of Military Surgeons (AMS) have decided to
hold their successful Annual Scientific Conference on Thursday 12th May 2011 in
the Purbeck Hall at the Bournemouth International Centre. It is very much
hoped that the Military Surgery Conference will also be of interest to a wider
general surgical audience, and delegates attending the ASGBI Congress are most
welcome to attend most of the Military Surgery sessions. ASGBI extends a warm
welcome to Surgeon Vice Admiral Philip Raffaelli (the Surgeon General), Surgeon
Captain Professor Mark Midwinter (Defence Professor of Surgery and AMS
representative on ASGBI Council) and their colleagues.
PROGRAMME
As always, the Association wishes to expand on the success of previous meetings and foster greater
involvement from the wider surgical community. To that end, this year we are delighted to additionally
welcome the British Intestinal Failure Alliance (BIFA), the Association of Military Surgeons (AMS), The
United Kingdom Medical Students’ Association (UKMSA) and the Association of Surgeons in Primary Care
(ASPC), who will be holding their Conferences in conjunction with the ASGBI Congress.
The Association of Surgeons in Primary Care (ASPC) will be holding their Annual Scientific Conference
on Friday 13th May 2011 in the Bay View Suite at the Bournemouth International Centre. It is very
much hoped that this will encourage closer interaction between primary and secondary care and that
the ASPC scientific programme will also be of interest to a wider surgical audience. Therefore, delegates
attending the ASGBI Congress are most welcome to attend ASPC sessions. The Association extends a
cordial welcome to Mr Raj Dhumale (President of ASPC) and his colleagues.

Professor Martin Birchall
Martin Birchall is Professor
of Laryngology and
Consultant Laryngologist
at the Royal National
Throat, Nose and Ear
Hospital at University
College London. Since
1995, Professor Birchall
has been attempting to
harness the best of
biomedical science to
support restoration of
function to people whose
throats have been damaged by accident and disease,
including cancer. This includes the understanding of
laryngeal immunity to help people with
inflammatory (laryngitis) and malignant (throat
cancer) conditions; repairing paralysed laryngeal
nerves; and investigating viral (papillomatosis) and
bacterial infections of the throat. With the ultimate
goal of achieving complete replacement of the larynx
for persons in whom it is destroyed by trauma or
cancer, this work is now being brought together into
parallel themes of stem-cell/tissue-engineered airway
replacements, and laryngeal transplantation.

Chair:
Professor Pierce Grace
(Limerick)
Station 1: SIMENDO joint student
and preceptor training
The SIMENDO system provides real-time
training with the possibility for students
and surgeons to train together on the
same system to improve the interaction
between people performing surgery
together, including a special exercise on
the use of a 30 degree endoscope.
Station 2: Demonstration of
Laparoscopic suturing and honing
of skills using the LAP Mentor and
Haptica ProMIS simulators
The LAP Mentorв„ў multi-disciplinary LAP
surgery simulator enables simultaneous
hands-on practice for a single trainee or a
team. The system offers training
opportunities to new and experienced
surgeons for everything from perfecting
basic laparoscopic skills to performing
complete laparoscopic surgical
procedures. In addition, the improved
haptic interface on the new LAP Mentor II
offers enhanced tactile feedback,
performance and reliability. ProMISв„ў
retains a �mixed reality’/hybrid approach
of using virtual reality and physical reality,
using real instruments so that users
practise with the same instruments they
will use in the Operating theatre and
uniquely enables users to interact with
virtual and physical models in the same
unit while providing accurate,
comprehensive feedback on performance.
Station 3: Practice laparoscopic
stapling techniques using TASKit
laparoscopic training systems
TASKit (Train Anywhere Skill Kit) portable,
collapsible trainers enable practice basic of
laparoscopic skills privately, on your own
time, at your pace, and at your chosen
location, with additional practice set to be
used with the TASKit Basic Kit and enables
you to simulate skills similar to the
Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery
accreditation tasks offered through the
Society of American Gastrointestinal and
Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES).

This course is designed to help
you get your work into print. It is
not an attempt to cover every
aspect of writing, nor is it possible
to go into detail of the pros and
cons of different types of study
design or data interpretation.
Instead, this course focuses on
those basic skills common to all
published work that can make the
difference between acceptance
and rejection.
The course is designed to be
interactive and is divided into short
interactive sessions, each
consisting of one or more brief
tutorials, a series of related tasks,
small group discussion and a
review. Many of the text examples
included have been taken from
papers published in the British
Journal of Surgery over the past
few years.

SURGERY IN DISASTER AND

A joint session with Surgeons from
MГ©decins Sans FrontiГЁres (MSF)
Situations change rapidly throughout the world, and MSF provides
surgeons that have the ability to work in environments that put
them well out of their normal comfort zones. You may be working
as a team of surgeons in earthquake and flood areas, or near the
frontline on your own with a team of theatre nurses or within a
township anywhere in the world that has lost its health infrastructure due to governmental collapse. Wherever you work, you
will be helping the most vulnerable of people that really require
your surgical help. MSF UK provides British and Irish surgeons
and is developing training programmes to enable you to volunteer
and feel supported by us at all times on your mission.

In 1997, Helen Rollason, the BBC Television Sports Commentator, was diagnosed with
advanced colonic carcinoma and liver metastases and the Association’s then President, Mr
Bernie Ribeiro, was involved in her care during her last two years. Helen was determined to
write about her experience, so that it might help others with cancer. She brought hope and
courage to many people and was keen also to tell her story through her favourite medium television. It was appropriate that the Cancer Symposium at the ASGBI Annual Scientific
Meeting in Cardiff in 2000 was dedicated to Helen’s memory and that the Helen Rollason Heal
Cancer Charity has subsequently sponsored an annual travelling Fellowship for a world
authority on cancer to lecture each year at the ASGBI Congress. The prominence given to this
lecture is a fitting testament to Helen and continues to inspire us in our search for a cure.

The Helen Rollason Cancer Charity was
founded in 1999 and is the legacy of Helen
Rollason MBE, a pioneering female television
sports presenter, broadcaster and a fundraiser,
who died of cancer aged 43.
Helen gave her name and image to help attract
national and international support and the
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity was established
by her oncologist, Professor Neville Davidson
(chairman of the charity).
The charity funds two cancer support centres
and a cancer research laboratory. In an
environment of peace and tranquillity,
complementary therapies, counselling and
support groups are available to people with
cancer, their families, carers and friends. The
support centres – one in Essex and one in
London – are for people with all types of cancer
at all stages: whether newly diagnosed or
longer term, throughout treatment and after
treatment is completed. The support centre in
Essex also provides manual lymph drainage.
The Helen Rollason Research Laboratory,
which was originally opened in April 2003, is
located within and managed in collaboration
with Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford.
Pioneering work continues to gather pace. We
currently have scientists undertaking research
into breast cancer, using freshly collected
tumour specimens and blood samples from
breast cancer patients. Our aim is to gain a
greater understanding of breast cancer from
these projects which could potentially result in
better treatment options for patients, better
prognosis and higher survival rates.
The charity relies on public donations and
receives no government funding.

UK company Tissuemed Ltd specialises in developing
synthetic, absorbable surgical sealant films using its
proprietary Tissuebond bioadhesive polymers. The
company’s “TissuePatch” films are in many ways an
alternative to liquid sealants and follow the principle
that clinicians want zero prep, easy to apply,
functionally and economically effective methods of
sealing tissues. The company is showcasing two
products; TissuePatch3в„ў is a single-sided adhesive
film used to seal oozing or diffuse bleeding areas.
New to market is TissuePatchDSв„ў, a double-sided
adhesive film, which offers the surgeon the ability to
seal two opposing surfaces, thereby minimising the
presence of fluid-filled voids between tissues.

2011 MOYNIHAN TRAVELLING FELLOWSHIP
The Association’s prestigious Moynihan Travelling Fellowship, up to the value of £5,000, is
available annually by open competition to Specialist Registrars towards the end of higher surgical
training or Consultants within five years of appointment at the closing date for this application.
The Fellowship is intended to enable the successful candidate to broaden their education and to
present and discuss their contribution to British and Irish surgery overseas. It is not appropriate,
however, that the award be used as part-funding for an off-service year of training.
Candidates must be residents of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland but need not be
either Fellows or Affiliate Fellows of the Association; however they should be engaged in general
surgery or in one of its specialties. A full CV should be submitted giving details of all past and
present appointments and publications, together with a detailed account of the proposed
programme of travel, costs involved and objectives to be achieved during the Fellowship.
Short-listed candidates will be invited to attend for interview by the Association’s Scientific
Committee. The Committee will pay particular attention to originality, scope and feasibility of
the proposed itinerary. The successful candidate will be expected to act as an ambassador for
British and Irish Surgery and should be fully acquainted with the aims and objectives of the
Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland and its role in surgery.
After the Fellowship, the successful candidate will be required to provide a written report of
their Fellowship for inclusion in the Association’s Newsletter, and to address the ASGBI
International Surgical Congress in 2013. A critical appraisal of the Centres visited, together
with an assessment of how the experience will enhance future personal and professional
development, should form the basis of the report.
Applications should be submitted online at www.asgbi.org.uk by the closing date of
Friday 7th October 2011
