In this episode, we had the pleasure of talking with some of the APP leadership of the AHPBA. We discussed issues that are important to both APPs and surgeons alike. A must listen for any APP interested in HPB surgery or any surgeon who currently works with, or would like to work with, APPs. Enjoy!
En este segundo episodio de la serie de América Latina en el AHPBA podcast tuve el privilegio de conversar con una persona que no necesita mayor introducción en el mundo HPB de las Américas, el Dr. Javier Lendoire (@lendoire). Nos hablo de su formación, de Thomas Starlz, de sus Amigos, y de su tiempo como presidente de AHPBA. @lendoire, entrego grandes consejos y anécdotas que espero disfruten.
Javier C Lendoire, MD, Ph.D - Bio
Javier C Lendoire graduated with the Honor Degree at the University of Buenos Aires. His general surgical training was completed at the Hospital Español of Buenos Aires. In 1989 he was awarded with the Rotary Foundation Scholarship for International Understanding and began his training in Hepatobiliary Surgery and Liver Transplantation at the Transplant Division of the University of Pittsburgh in charge of Thomas Starzl.
In 1993 Javier Lendoire as Vice Chairman opened with Oscar Imventarza the first Public Adult Liver Transplant Program of Argentina in the Hospital Dr C Argerich of Buenos Aires. Also, they developed the first Liver Transplant Program of the Litoral Region located in Formosa City and the Liver Tx and HPB Unit in Sanatorio Trinidad Mitre of Buenos Aires. Dr Lendoire became Chairman of Liver Transplantation at ITAC, Buenos Aires in 2019.
In 2003 he received his Ph.D from the University of Buenos Aires and in 2007 he was appointed Professor of Surgery at the same University.
Dr Lendoire is founding member and Past-President of the Argentine Society of Transplantation, Council Member since 2003 and Past President of the Argentine Chapter of the IHPBA (CA-IHPBA). He served as President of the AHPBA (2015-2016), member of the Scientific Committee of the IHPBA since 2008 and was recipient of the 2019 AHPBA Nonie Lowry Distinguished Service Award.
In this episode, we had the honor of interviewing Dr. Mike D’Angelica, program director of both the HPB and Surgical Onocology fellowships at Memorial Sloan Kettering. He is the Enid A Haupt Chair in Surgery at MSK and the current president of the AHPBA.
In this episode, we took at deep dive into the use of hepatic artery infusion pumps and, more broadly, Dr. D’Angelica’s approach to the treatment of patients with CRLM. This is a real crash course into the use of this modality, and should be of interest to everyone from early trainees to attending surgeons wanting to learn more about HAIPs. We really enjoyed this interview, as is evidenced by the fact that it went for over an hour, and we hope you enjoy it as well.

Episode 11: Dr Michele Molinari - Patients’ treatment preferences for potentially resectable tumors of the head of the pancreas
In this episode, we discussed a recent article in HPB entitled, "Patients’ treatment preferences for potentially resectable tumors of the head of the pancreas." We discussed this interesting paper (link to paper below), which centered around patient decision making when faced with a difficult decision of which therapy to receive in the setting of resectable pancreas cancer. This paper contained some very surprising insights into the thought process of patients, and we had a very interesting discussion around this topic. Enjoy!
For this episode, we had the honor of sitting down with Dr. Steven Strasberg, who is a living legend in the HPB Surgery. We discussed the history behind laparoscopic cholecystectomy, bile duct injuries and the development of the critical view of safety. We also discussed repair of bile duct injuries with the master himself. We really enjoyed this interview and we hope you do too!
A couple of papers discussed:
Davidoff et al. Mechanisms of Major Biliary Injury During Laparoscopic Cholecytstectomy
Strasberg et al.
The "hidden cystic duct" syndrome and the infundibular technique of laparoscopic cholecystectomy - the danger of the false infundibulum.
The original description of the critical view of safety:
Strasberg et al. An analysis of the problem of biliary injury during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
In this episode, we sat down with Dr. Tim Pawlik and discussed his path to chair and general career path, his amazing academic productivity, and asked for some advice on how to build a successful academic career. Enjoy!
In this episode, we interviewed Dr. Melissa Hogg on the development and implementation of training platforms for robotic pancreatic surgery, in Pittsburgh, in Chicago, and now around the world.
