ESES2017 – Surgery for Subclinical Endocrine Disease

Dear Colleagues,

The next meeting of the European Society of Endocrine Surgeons will be held in Oxford in April 2017.  Provisional programme and information about the meeting are outlined at

I hope that the theme of the meeting and the easy access into Oxford would attract many of the BAETS members and your trainees to participate to the entire meeting or some of the sessions. Previous ESES meeting have worked well because of the strong contribution of the ‘home nation’ hence I would be delighted to welcome BAETS members to this event.

Oral presentations will be selected with priority from abstracts related to the topics of each symposium: normocalcaemic hyperparathyroidism, subclinical Cushing syndrome, hypertension and primary hyperaldosteronism and thyroid incidentalomas.

Abstracts that do not fit these themes are likely to be selected for poster presentation.

The deadline for submission will be 1st December 2016.  All abstracts will be marked by three reviewers before a final decision being made at the Executive Committee meeting in mid January 2017.

Authors of abstracts selected for oral presentation will be encouraged to submit their work for publication in the issue of Langenbeck’ Archive in Surgery dedicated to ESES2017 meeting.  Furthermore, young presenters of oral presentations will qualify for reduced registration fees.

On the first day of the meeting there will be an educational session “How I do it”.  Please contact me in the near future in case you would like to present videos of difficult cases or operative technique or illustrating the management of intraoperative complications.

I am looking forward to welcome you all in Oxford in April 2017.

Friendly yours,

Radu Mihai
