The 26th Congress of the Spanish Society of Orbital and Ocular Plastic Surgery (SECPOO), the most noteworthy event in the field of oculoplastics at a national level, will be held in Bilbao next June 8th, 9th and 10th.
In this 26th edition, the Congress will be aimed not only to promote its well-stablished educational approach, but also, and particularly, to achieve improvements in terms of its scientific component and pursue international visibility.
For that reason, communications presented this year have been carefully selected, in a way that only those providing higher scientific evidence have been chosen.
