Our participation at this event, is a clear statement of our commitment to patient health, and the long-term safety of our breast implants. We are extremely honored to be part of a world class event like this.
As always, GCA is at the forefront of the industry with a prominent and permanent focus on patient safety. We will continue to closely monitor the incidence of BIA- ALCL and participate in collaborative global research. We also remain committed to transparency with our doctors and patients about this and any other safety concerns.
This symposium aims to bring together a multidisciplinary team of plastic surgeons, hematopathologists, breast surgeons, oncologists, immunologists, and radiologists with experts from complementary disciplines to achieve an overall better understanding of the management of breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). Recent advances in biologic and immunotherapy specific to recognized actionable targets in BIA-ALCL tumours as well as chemotherapy and radiation therapy in advanced disease will be highlighted. Special sessions on difficult and interesting cases as well as challenging reconstructive cases of the chest wall and metastasis will focus on best practices through discussion of challenging cases by a multidisciplinary panel of experts. Didactic lectures, panel discussions, and discussion of different cases will provide opportunities for the participants to address practical management questions and concerns with experts in the field and the course faculty. The conference will begin with a half day dedicated to patient education which focuses on the fundamentals of the disease and utilizes patient advocate experts.
