The 25th International Congress of the ISHRS (International Society of Baldness Surgery), which as every year attracts hundreds and hundreds of doctors from all over the world, has come to an end this year.

The congress was divided into a workshop on FUE held in Poland, where live surgery was performed to demonstrate to new doctors in this field how to perform hair transplantation with FUE technique.

Several innovative methods and tools for performing the Fue transplantation technique have been shown by renowned international surgeons.

The second part of the congress took place in Prague where new studies in the field of hair loss surgery and trichology were presented and the classic concepts of baldness were reiterated for newcomers. During the general congress, workshops and mini-courses were held by the most important international experts.

Dr. Chiara Insalaco, plastic surgeon and specialist in baldness surgery, was the youngest Italian doctor and not only to have played important teaching roles in this long-awaited international event.

Dr. Insalaco had the honor to be part of the Faculty in the workshop on Fue in Poland.

Two important topics were presented by Dr. Insalaco.

On Sunday, October 1, Dr. Insalaco taught the new physicians entering this world for the first time the evaluation of the donor area and the importance of calculating the mass index of hair during the first visit.

These parameters are fundamental to study the evolution of baldness and to understand whether or not the patient is a good candidate for the surgery.

On Monday, October 2, Dr. Chiara Insalaco gave a reading on the choice of the most appropriate punch during the Fue transplant.

Molti medici tendono ad usare sempre ed esclusivamente la stessa misura di punch per tutti i pazienti. La Dott.ssa Insalaco ha illustrato invece come e’ importante valutare e studiare attentamente le Unita’ Follicolari della zona donatrice di ogni paziente al fine di scegliere la tipologia e la misura più adatta di punch per ottenere il miglior risultato possibile.

Ogni paziente e’ differente e per questo motivo e’ necessario personalizzare quanto piu’ possibile l’intervento chirurgico. Del resto E’ come voler fare indossare una stessa misura di pantaloni a tutte le donne! E’ chiaro che non andrà bene per tutte!

Il workshop si e’ concluso con grande successo

La dott.ssa Insalaco ha avuto un riconoscimento internazionale per il suo importante contributo al congresso.

Finito il primo capitolo in Polonia ci si sposta a Praga per la continuazione del 25esimo congresso Internazionale della ISHRS.

Un programma ricco e variegato si e’ tenuto nei giorni del congresso.

La dott.ssa Insalaco E’ stata a capo del workshop sul PRP svoltosi in due giornate il 6 e il 7 ottobre. Nomi internazionali importanti hanno fatto parte della Faculty, tra questi: Dott. John Cole, Dott.ssa Robin Unger, Dott. Carlos Puig e Dott. Gupta.

Tutte le ultime novità e studi sul Prp sono stati discussi dagli organizzatori, con scambi di opinioni ed esperienze diverse tra di loro.

It was one of the most popular and successful workshops, with a very high number of participants.

Dr. Insalaco and Dr. Cole presented their study in the latter two.

On October 5th the FUEAC (FUE Commission) meeting was held, of which Dr. Insalaco is a member together with a few other surgeons from all over the world.

The commission makes the most important decisions about the FUE, conducts and approves studies to improve and advance this field as much as possible.

On Friday, October 6, Dr. Insalaco had the honor in collaboration with Dr. Akaki Tsilosani to discuss and teach the “Transplantation of body hair” to participants interested in the topic.

Also this congress ended with a large number of participants in a suggestive context such as the city of Prague.

Waiting for the next ISHRS congress to be held next year in Hollywood, Los Angeles!
