March 5 to 7: “Complications in Neurosurgery” Webinar Brings Innovation, Centralization and , Digitally Useful Way of Educating about Neurosurgery Complications



from Keki Turel MD of India, Webinar Director

You are probably well aware of two highly successful and impressive International Conferences on Complications in Neurosurgery (1st and 2nd ICCN) conducted in March 2017 and January 2019 respectively. Reflecting on the kind of response obtained at these meetings it became amply clear that Neurosurgeons from across the world, from the very young (Including residents-in-training) to the senior-most, and even retired Professors, regarded this as a breakthrough in Neurosurgery. The atmosphere of transparency and the enthusiasm with which the papers were presented and candidly discussed demonstrated that people were no longer shy to discuss Complications and share their learning with colleagues worldwide.

Even after the pandemic shook the world, we continued the activity by way of a unique “web-based platform for Complications in Neurosurgery” by the name: This Platform will serve both as a repository as well as the forum to discuss issues related to Complications experienced by individuals/ Divisions/ Societies of Neurosurgery. This digital technology helped us hold webinars on Complications encountered in various subspecialties of Neurosurgery viz: Skull Base / Cerebro & Endo Vascular / CSF Leaks / TBI etc. These webinars will continue to pursue the objective of attracting world leaders to share their experience and wisdom with colleagues in the interest of better patient care.

At the culmination of 2nd ICCN in 2019, we had promised to host the next 2-yearly meeting (3rd ICCN) in March 2021. We are happy to announce that we have not forgotten our promise and are ready to host the 3rd ICCN, as scheduled, on 5th/ 6th & 7th March 2021, this time virtually of course!

This is my personal invitation to you to actively participate in this conference. The format of the conference will remain unchanged from previous events and will discuss Complications in various subspecialties of our vast field. Kindly send the titles of Complications you wish to present. Let me reiterate that, as in the past,:

1 The Complication must be experienced by you or by a member of your team.

2 Presentation time will be 5 minutes. Discussion will occur at the end of the session during specific time allocated for the discussion.

3 Objective should be to project the lessons learnt from a particular case or collection of cases with a view to sharing it with our International colleagues and receiving their critique / opinion/ suggestions.

This will make an ideal forum for education for Neurosurgeons of all genres, the ones benefiting the most being Young Neurosurgeons and senior residents.

Kindly revert at the earliest, preferably by end of January, so that we can make this yet another memorable experience.

Wishing you continued good health and a New Year of hope, peace, progress and prosperity.
