The upcoming FECAVA Euro-Congress in Munich (6-9 November) has a packed scientific programme with up to 8 parallel streams, providing updates in a wide range of disciplines by leading speakers.

Apart from the FECAVA symposium, there are two FECAVA lectures: Gastric protective drugs – which to use and why, by Reto Neiger (Thursday afternoon) and Treatment of perineal hernias – which staged approach is the best?, by Dick White (Sunday morning).

Satellite seminars will be held on Thursday – as will the opening ceremony, featuring Sebastian Haag, veterinarian and extreme athlete.

And don’t forget to pack - or rent – your dirndl or lederhosen (traditional Bavarian costume) for the conference party in the Löwenbräukeller on Friday night: “a night full of Bavarian festivities, delicious hearty food and Munich’s legendary beer”!
