    Dear colleagues,

    The abstract submission website for the upcoming IFOS PARIS 2017 World Congress is now open.
    The Scientific Committee will select the abstracts taking into consideration the geographical diversity, the innovative character as well as the scientific value and the methodology. In order to achieve the maximum number of plenary sessions, the Scientific Committee decided to open the submissions to roundtable discussions, symposia and keynote lecture proposals.
    The oral communications will be organized in the form of e-posters (video posters, commented poster etc). A certain number of those, according to their topics, will be selected and transformed in oral communications by the Scientific Committee.
    Hoping that a great number of you will participate in this event, we look forward to meeting you in Paris in 2017.

    With kind regards,

    Professor Bernard FRAYSSE, Vice President of IFOS
    Professor Frédéric CHABOLLE, General Secretary IFOS 2017 World Congress

    Surgery of the Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands
    November 4–5, 2016 • Friday–Saturday
    Westin Copley Place, Boston, MA

    Earn up to 15.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™Dear Colleague,The field of thyroid and parathyroid surgery has recently undergone significant changes; thyroid cancer incidence has increased dramatically over the last several decades, technologic advances have been achieved in molecular analysis of patients and the American Thyroid Association has recently published its new set of medical and surgical thyroid nodule and thyroid cancer guidelines. There is a tremendous new data set that is important to convey to medical endocrinologists and thyroid and parathyroid surgeons.This course is a 2-day course about surgery of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, which has been offered since 1996. Preoperative workup of both thyroid and parathyroid surgical disease will be discussed, with an emphasis on fine needle aspiration and preoperative parathyroid localization imaging options. Surgical techniques will be reviewed (recurrent laryngeal nerve monitoring, parathyroid identification and preservation, intraoperative PTH analysis) and minimally invasive surgical techniques will be discussed. Molecular genetic analysis for differentiated and medullary thyroid carcinoma and advances in oncogene research will also be presented. Surgical philosophy regarding bilateral thyroid surgery, its risks, surgical treatment of the neck, and surgical treatment of invasive tracheal disease will be presented, and we will also review recognition and treatment of postoperative complications along with new advances in their treatment. A panel discussion will focus on difficult cases, which will include audience participation.Register today!Sincerely,
