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.
