The following Hands-on Workshops are supported by Companies and non-CME accredited.

Hands-on-Workshop 5: Endoscopic lung volume reduction with valves

supported by PulmonX

Wednesday, 7 June 2017, 13.30 - 14.30
Thursday, 8 June 2017, 15
.00 - 16.00

Participation is limited to 12 delegates

The workshop is designed to allow participants to gain practical skills in the placement of endobronchial valves in pig lung models. Besides, attendants will learn how to select the right patients by identifying collateral ventilation with the StratX software and the Chartis Assessment tool.

Hands-on-Workshop 7: Patient selection & valve therapy in emphysema

supported by Olympus

Wednesday, 7 June 2017, 15.00 - 16.00

Participation is limited to 12 delegates

Endoscopic lung volume reduction is a promising non-surgical treatment option for emphysema patients. The aim of this workshop is to allow participants to develop their practical skills in valve therapy. Participants will learn how to select the right patients with "SeleCT" quantitative CT Analysis and have the opportunity to practice the procedure using the equipment in pig lung models.

Hands-on Workshop 10: Indication and application training of the PleurX®- catheter system

Wednesday, 7 June 2017, 13.30 - 14.30

Participation is limited to 12 delegates

Dyspnea due to recurrent pleural effusion is one of the most frightening symptoms for palliative care patients. The PleurX®-catheter provides a new therapeutically option to achieve a rapid improvement of dyspnea in rest and during exertions, to reach a higher level of quality of life and from time to time a sufficient pleurodesis could be achieved.

  • In this workshop we offer hands on training in insertion/ application of the PleurX® Catheter using a thorax skin model.
  • Additionally, you get detailed information about the home management using the intermittent drainage system and information regarding the follow up service
