We had a great pleasure that the second Regional Masterclass was organised this year in Katowice, Poland. It was significant as it took place on the first day of the 11th Symposium of Polish Club of Coloproctology on the 20th Anniversary of its establishment. The main theme of masterclass in Katowice was the modern and advanced management of rectal cancer.
This one-day course was a great opportunity to listen to the opinions of brilliant specialists in the field of Rectal Cancer treatment and to consolidate the knowledge about modern proceeding in this disease. Among our distinguished speakers were: Emmanuel Tiret, Gabriella Palmer, Torbjörn Holm, Geerard Beets, Dieter Hahnloser, Marek Szczepkowski, Adam Dziki and Zbigniew Lorenc
