III Congress of the World Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery – WSRM

(October 23-25, 2005, Buenos Aires, Argentina)




As it occurred with the preceding Congresses of the World Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery –Taiwan 2001, and Heidelberg 2003- a new Congress, Argentina 2005, is meant to be an invaluable scientific contribution to the field, allowing the exchange of knowledge in Reconstructive Microsurgery at a worldwide level.
South America is both proud to greet the presence of so many and so distinguished personalities from the other parts of the world, and eager to share the riches of such an exchange inasmuch as this is the first time a most important scientific meeting takes place in our continent.
This is why I am so thankful to the WSRM to have entrusted me the capacity of chairman of this III World Congress.
May I express my thanks to the members of our Scientific Committee: Dr. B. Battiston (Italy), Dr. J. Bertelli (Brazil), Dr. E. Gandolfo (Argentina), Dr. A. Georgescu (Romania), Dr. G. Loda, Jr. (Argentina), Dr. A. Muset (Spain), Dr. R. Nigro (Argentina), Dr. C. Rijavek (Argentina), Dr. J.M. Viñas (Argentina), and Dr. R.Yohena (Argentina).
I understand this book constitutes a most valuable source of knowledge that should be included on the medical bookshelves of all surgeons devoted to Reconstructive Microsurgery.
