    Learning Objectives:
    - Discuss renal cell carcinoma in the immunosuppressed patient
    - Review some of the logistical components that accompany dual organ transplants
    - Examine the clinical challenge of a heart-liver transplant

    Journal Review in Colorectal Surgery: Kono-S Anastomosis and Stem Cells in Crohn’s Disease

    Journal Review in Colorectal Surgery: Kono-S Anastomosis and Stem Cells in Crohn’s Disease

    You are faced with a young patient with ileal Crohn’s disease. He requires an ileocolic resection. Which type of anastomosis do you perform? You also see another patient with complex perianal fistulas and the patient asks about the safety and efficacy of stem cells for fistula closure. What do you tell the patient?


    Join Dr. Carole Richard, Dr. François Dagbert and Dr. Maher Al Khaldi in their conversation about the Kono-S anastomosis after ileocolic resections and stem cell therapy for perianal complex fistulas for Crohn’s disease. 



    Learning objectives 
    -       To understand the rationale for the Kono-S anastomosis and the way it is fashioned. 
    -       To explain the possible advantages of the Kono-S anastomosis following ileocolic resection.
    -       To explain the possible advantages of stem cell therapy for complex perianal fistulas.
    -       To understand which patient population might be eligible for future stem cell therapy for complex perianal fistulas.

A Must To Survive Gen Sx!!!

An extremely useful resource in preparation to the ABSITE and for residency to. Helps you to summarize several topics, reinforce things you already know and multitask (it is my go-to-playlist in the gym). Highly recommended to every intern starting the Gen Sx Residency this year!
