Hungary Chapter

Hungarian Chapter (Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary (HPB) Surgical Research Center Hungary) “Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary (HPB) Surgical Research Center of Hungary” is a honored part of the Hungarian Surgical Association and includes about 40 members. HPB surgery is performed at 4 university clinics and some countryside hospital (the number is increasing progressively) in our country. In addition, Hungary is the member of Eurotransplant program, with more than 80 liver transplant yearly. Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary (HPB) Surgical Research Center Hungary was established in 2015 by Professor Attila Szijarto (see link)

The aim of the association is to promote and coordinate clinical researches and educational program among HPB surgeon in Hungary. Since 2015, several regional and international conferences were organized by the working groups, including the “11th European Digestive Surgery Postgraduate Course” (2017), the “Complex treatment of colorectal liver metastases – consensus conference” (2019) and the “Complex treatment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma – consensus conference” (2021).

In addition, the working group has a significant activity in translational and clinical research as well, focusing especially on liver and pancreas surgery (ischemia and reperfusion, liver regeneration, liver transplantation), some example which is related to the board of the HPB Surgical Research Center of Hungary:
