Dr. Raymond Planinsic Presents as Part of Inaugural Lecture for Japanese Perioperative Hemostasis Research Group


Congratulations to Raymond M. Planinsic, MD, who presented the lecture “Coagulation Strategies in Liver Transplant Surgery” at the inaugural hemostasis seminar of the Japanese Perioperative Hemostasis Research Group on August 26, 2017 in Osaka, Japan.

The seminar, titled “New Concepts in Perioperative Hemostasis,” was chaired by Kenichi Tanaka, MD, currently Professor and Chief of Cardiac Anesthesiology at the University of Maryland and formerly a resident and faculty member in our department.

The seminar was designed for physicians who manage perioperative bleeding and transfusion in critically ill patients. Three renowned physicians from the United States, Drs. Tanaka, Planinsic, and Bradley Taylor, MD, MPH (cardiac surgeon, University of Maryland), reviewed basic hemostasis mechanism, surgical hemostasis, and coagulation strategies in cardiac surgery and liver transplantation.
