Acute Care Surgery came to be known in Japan also, and we have seen the signs of the change in ACS in Japan as younger physicians desire to participate in the treatment of emergency diseases. In the urban areas, critical care emergency center is put in place, and courses on ATOM and such are offered. However, clinical practice of Acute Care Surgery is maintained by the enormous effort of individual hospitals in non-urban areas. Please share and argue the facts of such clinical practice, what kind of efforts have been made, and the education of young physicians and medical team.
This is the content that this Society has been discussing since the time when it was still a scientific meeting. The improvement and prevalence of IVR are remarkable, and it is necessary to discuss the latest topic and continue developing new IVR methods. For those doctors from the institutions where many abdominal injury cases are handled, please share the data and past cases then discuss how the decision between surgical treatment and IVR should be made. Of course, your sharing of cases that the alternative choice might have worked better would be more than welcome.
In the United States, AAST and Acute Care Surgery Training Facilities set forth their respective training programs. On the other hand, in our country, the contents of clinical practice and the systems of Acute Care Surgery differ greatly from facility to facility and from area to area. Under such circumstance, we look forward that this symposium becomes a joint meeting useful for the future ACS with your provision of information on the current status of the intervention of Acute Care Surgery, its education system, and the initiatives that promotes the participation of young physicians in both Japan and Korea.

Now, therefore, we would like those doctors who have been applying endoscopic surgery to emergency surgery to share its adaptation, the facts of the operations, merits, and pitfalls and discuss these matters.
The advancement of the treatment techniques such as surgical procedures and IVR in Acute Care Surgery has been dazzling.
