Some of the World’s renowned surgeons and authorities in the subject will be the keynote speakers in the congress also in Lofoten as it was in Egypt. For example, our Master and the legendary surgeon prof Kenneth L. Mattox, advisory Councilor of the Society and an Associate Editor of its official Journal namely, the journal of Cardiothoracic Trauma www.jctt.org, will make keynote spectacular talks twice everyday in the meeting. A great faculty will come from different parts of the World with different cardiothoracic trauma experiences. Exchange of knowledge and experiences on such a highly advanced level is one of the main idea of the congress.
Courses of Excellence by World´s experts on the most urgent procedures, together with special course and sessions on how to fix a deformed chest wall congenitally or due to trauma will be given alongside the congress.
