Association of Breast Surgery Annual Conference 2018

Association Breast Surgery – Annual Conference 2018

Our UK Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery (PARS) team attended the ABS 2018 Annual Conference as part of our Corporate Sponsorship of ABS. As usual, the ABS conference was flawlessly ran with a very interesting agenda that covered crucial topics in breast surgery.

We brought along our complete breast portfolio to Birmingham which attracted a lot of attention! As Healthcare 21 has recently taken over the distribution of Allergan’s breast portfolio it was a great opportunity for our PARS team to meet existing and potential customers and to explain the excellent level of service that we can offer customers as Healthcare 21.

A highlight of the event for us was seeing Great Western’s poster about their initial experience using Artia Acellular Dermal Matrix. The paper concludes that ‘Artia can be safely adopted into our practice with exceptionally low complication rates and no implant loss to date, with high levels of patient satisfaction reported’.

We also brought along a game for delegates to compete against each other using the Keller Funnel, the game proved to be very popular and certainly brought out the competitive side of some of the delegates! Below are some photos of the game and leader board, well done to our winner Julia Dicks with a 10 second time that shaved 2 seconds off second place! We can’t wait to see if people have been practising in time for the events we are attending in the Autumn (ORBS, London Breast, CCR Expo and BAPRAS). Below are some photos of the Keller Funnel Game and the leader board!
