Dear members and guests,
It is a great pleasure and honour for me inviting you to the upcoming fourth biennial congress of the European Society of Endocrine Surgeons in Vienna. Although relatively young compared to other national and international surgical societies the ESES very fast emerged to be the leading voice of endocrine surgery in Europe. From its beginning the Society had tight relationships with the Division of Endocrine Surgery (DES) of the Section of Surgery of the UEMS. The Society together with the DES therefore appreciate very much offering not only modern structures and facilities for active participation in these organizations but also congresses and workshops, and the DES examination for specialization in endocrine surgery combined with the congress.
This year's congress again will be a highlight in European endocrine surgery. Bruno Niederle and his staff joined by the executive committee selected the most interesting papers for presentation out of more then 200 submitted abstracts. Originality and appropriate geographical distribution have been major criteria for abstract selection. The scientific program covers all areas of modern endocrine surgery. Four of the scientific sessions should be specifically mentioned (in order to the time table): the educational session on neuroendocrine tumors of the small intestine, the "Charles Proye Lecture" given by Paolo Miccoli (Pisa), the "Key Lecture" given by Edward M. Brown (Boston), and the session on Endocrine Surgery in Europe with presentations given by Marcin Barczynski (Krakow) and Michael Brauckhoff (Bergen).
The local organizers headed by Bruno Niederle did a fantastic job for this congress including perfect organization, selecting a wonderful venue, and preparing a friendly atmosphere – as typical for the „friendly endocrine surgeons". I am convinced you will expect a fascinating meeting and will have an overall memorable time in Vienna.
Warm welcome to the fourth congress of ESES! Henning Dralle President of ESES Welcome Address - Austrian Society of Surgery
Dear colleagues,
On behalf of the "Austrian Society of Surgery" I warmly welcome the "European Society of Endocrine Surgeons" to the 4th Biannual Congress in Vienna.
It is an honour for Austria that ESES has chosen Vienna as the congress venue, and this choice certainly also reflects the great appreciation of the Society for the major contribution that Austrian endocrine surgeons have made in the last decades to develop endocrine surgery to a highly specialised discipline within the framework of general surgery. This congress offers an exciting scientific programme embedded in the exciting environment of the beautiful city of Vienna. I wish all delegates a very productive meeting for the progress of endocrine surgery, and also a few hours of relaxation in this great city with its rich cultural heritage.
President of the Austrian Society of Surgery 2009/2010 Chairman, Department of Surgery, Medical University of Vienna Dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to Vienna for the 4th Biennial Congress of the European Society of Endocrine Surgeons, a meeting where dedicated researchers will cooperate with established clinicians in updating our knowledge in the multifaceted field of endocrine surgery.
Vienna is a well known place in connection with endocrinology. The Second Medical School of Vienna from the second half of the 19th century up to the first third of the 20th century and its results were initiated by outstanding and charismatic personalities such as: Billroth, Eiselsberg and Mandl.
During the last 60 years Austria has developed with tremendous effort an almost perfect health care system according to the international standards. Even in science and research our small country is constantly present. One of the visible symbols was the foundation of the Austrian Society for Surgery 52 years ago. Once again charismatic persons were the trailblazers for the new period.
Current representatives are the local organizers, Bruno Niederle and his team, who did a great job together with the integrated and participating Austrian endocrine surgeons.
Vienna's charming atmosphere, its historical and cultural importance offer ideal prerequisits for international meetings and promise a pleasant stay for all participants and guests.
We look forward to seeing you in Vienna Rudolf Roka Secretary General, Austrian Society of Surgery Welcome Address - Local Organising Committee
After the "Founding Conference" in 2003, the very successful "Second Workshop: Update in Endocrine Surgery - Endoscopic Surgery in Neuroendocrine Pancreatic Tumours" ESES is guest in Vienna for the third time.
It is a great privilege for the "Local Organising Committee" to welcome the members of ESES and all participants to the "4th Biennial Congress"! We selected the "The Imperial Riding School Vienna - A Renaissance Hotel" as the congress venue. This exquisite historic hotel was built in 1850 and was used by Emperor Franz Josef I as an Philipp Riss Reza Asari imperial military riding school, where Christian Scheuba Bruno Niederle Daniela Truzla the cavalry was perfectly trained for their assignments.
All participants of the "4th Biennial Congress" may expect an exciting scientific programme and interesting discussions.
A total of 231 abstracts were submitted from all parts of the world. After a first selection 217 blinded abstracts were reviewed by members of the "Executive Committee" and of the "Research and Education Committee". The 40 best scored abstracts (throughout all topics of "Endocrine Surgery") were accepted for "oral" or "short oral presentation". Furthermore 37 "High Scored Posters" and 137 "Posters" will be presented and partly discussed. The "Local Organising Committee" awards prizes for the "Best Oral Communication" (jury members: the "Austrian National Delegates") and for the "Best Experimental and Clinical Posters" (jury members: members of the "National Delegate Council"). The prizes will be awarded in the Closing Session on Saturday. The General Hospital, which was opened in 1784, gradually became, together with its various clinics, at the beginning of the last century the most important centre for medical research in Vienna. One famous member of the "Vienna Medical School" was Emil Zuckerkandl, who died in Vienna 100 years ago (May 28, 1910). The "Historical Lecture" during the "Opening Ceremony" will summarise the background of this famous Hungarian- Austrian anatomist and of his time. Endocrine surgeons are well aware of the importance of the "Organ of Zuckerkandl" and of the "Zuckerkandl‘s tuberculum".
The "Evening Event" leads to the "First Court", the former heart of the famous "Old General Hospital". We cordially invite all participants to join us at the "Stiegl Ambulanz", the former outpatients´ department of the famous "Department of Surgery I", which was lead by Anton Freiherr von Eiselsberg, in order to enjoy a comfortable evening meeting to meet old friends and make new ones.
Enjoy the congress! Enjoy Vienna! Enjoy the time together! Bruno Niederle Christian Scheuba Reza Asari Philipp Riss LOCAL ORGANISING COMMITTEE

This exquisite historic Hotel was an imperial military riding school, where cavalries were trained perfectly.
In the beginning of the 19th century, when this purpose was not necessary any more, the building was converted into the "EOS Lichtspieltheater", Vienna's largest cinema at that time. From 1966 on, the Vienna post office used the complex as a workshop and a garage.
In 1988 the ground breaking ceremony was celebrated. The newly built hotel opened on 1 April 1990 as Penta Hotel Wien. "Penta" has been a hotel chain of initially five (penta = five in Greek) airlines. Later it was operated only by Lufthansa. Today's Hospitality Desk used to be a Lufthansa check in counter where guests could check in their luggage right at the hotel.
In June 1993 Lufthansa sold its hotel chain "Penta" to Renaissance & Ramada International and this hotel was renamed into Renaissance Penta Vienna Hotel. In May 1997 Marriott International became the new operator. In April 2001, with the opening of the newly built Imperial Club, the hotel was renamed again and got its actual name, reminding of the imperial history.
During the planning and construction of the hotel utmost care was taken to preserve the heritage and style of the original architecture. The entrance way and the restaurant Borromäus were originally the horse stables. The imperial riding hall was converted into our Renaissance Deluxe rooms for our guests. Our themed conference and banquet rooms are all named after classical riding terminologies such as „Pirouette", „Piaffe", „Levade", „Courbette" etc. which riders used in battle to distract the enemy.
Additionally, the Horse restrainer monument, which at one time graced the roof of the Riding Hall, has been relocated into a place of reflection in the hotels garden.
Two large Equestrian paintings on the wall of the main staircase of Count Starhemberg and the Duke of Lorraine by C. Huber are on loan from History of Art museum in Vienna.

We will take you on your own private sightseeing tour through Vienna over the Ringstrasse, past the State Opera, the famous Secession, the Karlsplatz and many more magnificent buildings right to the Old General Hospital Vienna, A ride with a historic tram, built in the nineteen-twenties, offers a unique way to see Vienna's historical buildings. Your guided tour lasts for about one hour and starts at the congress venue - The Imperial Riding School Vienna - A Renaissance Hotel. From there it continues to the Ring Boulevard where the tram passes many famous buildings, like Urania (a observatory in art nouveau which was established by emperor Franz Joseph and which still works), the Austrian Museum of Modern Art, the Stadtpark with the Johann- Strauss-Monument and the Kursalon. Then we leave the Ring Boulevard for a side step to Karlsplatz showing you St. Charles Church (Karlskirche), Künstlerhaus, Musikverein (from where each New Year's Eve the famous concert of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is broadcasted around the world) and the Museum of Viennese History. From there the tour continues on to the Schwarzenbergplatz with a view at the big fountain with a Soviet hero monument and a Schwarzenberg-monument. After having a look towards the Konzerthaus and the Akademietheater we come back to Ring Boulevard and pass the famous State Opera, the Goethe-Monument, the Schiller-Monument, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Maria-Theresia-Monument, the Museum of Natural History, the Parliament, the beautiful Vienna City Hall (Rathaus), the old-established Burgtheater, the Votivkirche, the old Stock Exchange-Building (Börse) and the Rossauer-casern. From Schottentor we will pass by the university and finally arrive at the "old general hospital" where we will have dinner at the "Stiegl Ambulanz", the former "Out-patient Department, Department of Surgery I, University of Vienna". Enjoy the magnificent city of Vienna from a historic tram which fits perfect to this imperial The Campus of the University of Vienna
The Campus of the University of Vienna is a very special place: because of its history as the former General Hospital, because of its architecture and its overall concept. Its neighbourhood benefits from the successful vitalisation of a historically important building and from the integration of facilities of the University of Vienna with local shops and The transformation of the former General Hospital to the Campus of the University of Vienna at the end of the 20th century is not the first rededication in the history of this building complex in the „Alservorstadt". Emperor Joseph II. (1765-1790) remodelled the large poor house which had existed since the 17th century into a General Hospital along the lines of the Hôtel Dieu in Paris. The inscription at the main entrance from the Alserstraße documents the Josephin transformation: „Saluti et solatio aegrorum – Josephus II. Augustus Anno MDCCLXXXIV" (to save and to comfort the sick - Emperor Joseph II. 1784). The large hospital (today‘s courts 1-7) was planned by the court‘s master builder Joseph Gerl (1734-1798) under the direction of the court‘s doctor and first director of the General Hospital, Joseph von Quarin (1733–1814). It was opened on August 16th, 1784. The new hospital also included a birthing house, a foundling hospital and the "madhouse" built in 1783 according to the design of Isidor Canevale (commonly known as „mad tower" or „Emperor Joseph‘s ring cake"); today it houses the Federal Pathologic-Anatomical Museum).
The buildings of the courtyards 8 and 9 are part of the expansions under Emperor Francis I. (1804-1835), as the inscription over the gate to the Garnisongasse indicates: „Saluti et solatio aegrorum Franciscus I. MDCCCXXXIV" (to save and to comfort the sick Francis I. 1834). In research, the General Hospital played an important role. Personalities of international standing of the Vienna Medical School, from Ignaz Semmelweis (1818-1865), Theodor Billroth (1829-1894) to Karl Landsteiner (1868-1943) worked here. Bus shuttle Service

The same qualities that allow HARMONIC® technology to shorten thyroidectomy times by 30 minutes* without compromising safety can yield important advantages in other head and neck procedures: • In parotidectomies, reduce intraoperative blood loss and duration of drainage.† • In parathyroidectomies, improve effi while minimizing thermal tissue injury.
• In all procedures, reduce instrument ex- changes by enabling you to dissect, cut and coagulate with the same device.
