Why Barcelona, Spain?
Barcelona is known for being the town of the famous Camp Nou stadium and of the Barcelona. One of the best achievements of the city was the hosting of the Olympic Games in 1992, because of this event Barcelona became famous to the eyes of the world and is now one among the most tourist attractions of Spain. Barcelona situated between the ocean and mountains, has found a formidable balance: a foot within the traditional things and thus the other within the avant-garde. Barcelona has the reputation of being the foremost cosmopolitan, modern and avant-garde city in Spain and it's renewed for the 1992 Olympic Games.
Visitors to Barcelona will enjoy spare time spent exploring the maze of cobbled streets and alleys within the Old Town, and therefore the vibrant street market culture of the town. Barcelona is additionally place to seven beautiful parks, including the famed Parc de la Ciutadella, while sea-loving visitors can enjoy ferry trips from the traditional port to destinations such as Alcudia, Palma, or Mahon. Some excellent gems of Barcelona that are well worth exploring include the amphitheatre within the Grec Gardens which was inbuilt the 1920s and therefore the Horta Labyrinth.
Tracks and Sessions
Track 1 | Scaffolds in Tissue Engineering
Tissue engineering along with regenerative medicine can be used to create ‘Scaffolds’ in the human body which are used to support organs and organ systems that may have been damaged due to an injury or disease. Fundamentally, this process involves the in vitro construction of a patch (or a graft). This patch is made from a combination of stem cells and an artificial extracellular matrix (biomaterial). The engineered patch can then be surgically implanted into affected areas of the body that need reconstruction.
Scaffolds must be capable of performing the following functions:
- Allow cell attachment and migration
- Deliver and retain cells and biochemical factors
- Enable diffusion of vital cell nutrients and expressed products
- Exert certain mechanical and biological influences to modify the behaviour of the cell phase
Track 2 | Biomaterials
A biomaterial is any substance that has been engineered to interact with biological systems for a medical purpose - either a therapeutic or a diagnostic one. They are often used and/or adapted for a medical application, and thus comprises whole or part of a living structure or biomedical device which performs, augments, or replaces a natural function. Biomaterials are also used every day in dental applications, surgery, and drug delivery. A biomaterial may also be an autograft, allograft or xenograft used as a transplant material.
Track 3 | 3D Printing
3D printing is any of various processes in which a material is joined or solidified under computer control to create a three-dimensional object. 3D printing technologies are a promising and viable means of fabricating replicable and functional scaffolds capable of promoting tissue regeneration. Different 3D printing technologies have been developed to maximize the results. This operational procedure is still in its rudimentary stages and further experimentation is being performed before it can be used on an industrial level.
Track 4 | Plastic Surgery
The process of reconstructing, repairing and concerned with improving the function or appearance of parts of the body by the transfer of tissue, either in the treatment of injury or for cosmetic reasons is called plastic surgery.
Aesthetic surgery: Aesthetic surgery is an essential component of plastic surgery and includes facial and body aesthetic surgery.
Craniofacial surgery: Craniofacial surgery is divided into paediatric and adult craniofacial surgery.
Hand surgery: Hand surgery is concerned with acute injuries and chronic diseases of the hand and wrist, correction of congenital malformations of the upper extremities, and peripheral nerve problems.
Microsurgery: Microsurgery is generally concerned with the reconstruction of missing tissues by transferring a piece of tissue to the reconstruction site and reconnecting blood vessels.
Paediatric plastic surgery: Many birth defects or syndromes such as craniofacial anomalies, syndactyly, polydactyly, congenital hand deformities present at birth are best treated in childhood, and paediatric plastic surgeons specialize in treating these conditions in children.
Track 5 | Reconstructive surgery
Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed to correct functional impairments caused by burns; traumatic injuries, such as facial bone fractures and breaks; congenital abnormalities, such as cleft palates or cleft lips; developmental abnormalities; infection and disease; and cancer or tumours. It is usually performed to improve function, but it may be done to approximate a normal appearance. Plastic surgeons use microsurgery to transfer tissue for coverage of a defect when no local tissue is available. Free parts of skin, muscle, bone, fat, or a combination may be removed from the body, moved to another site on the body, and reconnected to a blood supply by suturing arteries and veins.
Track 6 | Flap Surgery
A flap is a section of living tissue that carries its own blood supply and is moved from one area of the body to another. Flap surgery can restore form and function to areas of the body that have lost skin, fat, muscle movement, and/or skeletal support. A local flap uses a piece of skin and underlying tissue that lie adjacent to the wound. A regional flap uses a section of tissue that is attached by a specific blood vessel. A musculocutaneous flap, also called a muscle and skin flap, is used when the area to be covered needs more bulk and a more robust blood supply. In a bone/soft tissue flap, bone, along with the overlying skin, is transferred to the wounded area, carrying its own blood supply. Further experimentation is going on in this field to analyse its potency in human beings.
Track 7 | Molecular Tissue Engineering
A comprehensive understanding of the involved ingredients of tissue engineering (cells, tissue inducing factors, genes, bio-materials) and the subtle relationships between them at molecular level can lead to a successful manipulation of reparative processes and a better biological substitute. Molecular tissue engineering, the offspring of tissue engineering and molecular biology, has gained an increasing importance in recent years. It offers the promise of not simply replacing tissue but improving their restoration to benefit mankind in the long run. Though still a new concept in the field of Molecular Biology, Molecular Tissue Engineering is a promising field for the near future.
Track 8 | Traditional Medicine on Wound Healing
Wounds are the result of injuries to the skin that disrupt the other soft tissue. Healing of a wound is a complex and protracted process of tissue repair and remodelling in response to injury. Wound healing herbal extracts promote blood clotting, fight infection, and accelerate the healing of wounds. Phyto-constituents derived from plants need to be identified and screened for antimicrobial activity for management of wounds. Natural skin care uses topical creams and lotions made of ingredients available in nature such as herbs, roots, flowers, essential oils, etc.
Essential oils are concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. They play a major role in the healing of wounds in the human body. They are used in antiseptics and liniments in particular.
Wound healing by essential oils still has a long way to go before it hits the market globally.
Track 9 | Skin wound care
Wound healing is a natural restorative response to tissue injury. Healing is the interaction of a complex cascade of cellular events that generates resurfacing, reconstitution, and restoration of the tensile strength of injured skin. Healing is a systematic process, traditionally explained in terms of 4 overlapping classic phases: haemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, and maturation.
Haemostasis: Haemostasis starts within the very first moments of the injury, where platelets play a role by aggregating, as well as by releasing cytokines, chemokines, and hormones.
Inflammatory Phase: In addition to activation of fibrin, thrombin activated by the coagulation cascades facilitates migration of inflammatory cells to the site of injury by increasing vascular permeability.
Proliferative Phase: Formation of granulation tissue is a central event during the proliferative phase. Its formation occurs 3-5 days following injury and overlaps with the preceding inflammatory phase.
Epithelialization: Epithelialization is the formation of epithelium over a denuded surface. It involves the migration of cells at the wound edges from one side of the incision to the other.
Track 10 | Nursing
Nursing is a profession within the health care sector focused on the care of individuals, families, and communities for them to attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life. Nurses may be differentiated from other health care providers by their approach to patient care, training, and scope of practice. Nurses practice in many specialties with differing levels of prescription authority. This is a widely studied branch when it comes to wound and health care.
