The biannually celebrated “International Congress of the Latin American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery CIALACIBU”, this year taking place in Buenos Aires, was the perfect environment for a high-caliber S.O.R.G. L/A pre-conference event titled “State of the Art in Virtual Surgical Planning in Orthognathic and Reconstructive Surgery”.
S.O.R.G. L/A Chairman L. Quevedo (Chile) and Local Course Coordinator M. Diamante (Argentina) welcomed around 130 participants attending the excellent lectures in the morning and of which 72 persons were allowed to be part of a limited-attendance hands-on virtual planning workshop in the afternoon. Going through representative patient cases, the participants became aware of the intuitive simplicity of handling today’s modern 3D planning software transferable into the OR to their patients.
The invited European S.O.R.G. speakers Gwen Swennen (Belgium) and Christian Freudlsperger (Germany) completed the highly scientific performances of Dres. O. Cintra (Brazil) and L. Pacheco (Mexico) with their impressive cutting edge technology knowledge on the topic.
