ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION
Dive into a series of case studies by Dr. Deepankar Sharma, Director of Interventional Pulmonology at Columbus Regional Health in Columbus, Indiana.
Treatment of Uncommon Endobronchial Lesion in the Bronchus Intermedius with an AERO® Tracheobronchial Stent
A 77-year-old man with moderate COPD, obstructive sleep apnea, and a prior history of smoking, presented to emergency room with hemoptysis and was found to have a new endobronchial mass in the bronchus intermedius.
Stenosis Treatment in the Bronchus Intermedius with Telescoping AERO® Tracheobronchial Stents
A 48-year-old male with a medical history significant for diabetes, severe COPD, and 40 pack years of smoking, presented with a progressive cough and shortness of breath over a 3-month duration.
Treatment of Epithelial Myoepithelial Carcinoma in the Left Mainstem with Multiple AERO Tracheobronchial Stents
A 75-year-old woman presents with moderate COPD and recurrent metastatic breast cancer with a complete response to treatment. She then developed a sub-acute worsening shortness of breath and hemoptysis of a 2-month duration.
Management of Adenocarcinoma in the Right Mainstem and Bronchus Intermedius with the Use of Multiple AEROmini® Through-the-Scope Stents
A 68-year-old man with known adenocarcinoma of the rectum, failed to complete a recommended treatment in the past, presented with gradual worsening of shortness of breath.
Learn from a series of case studies on the AEROmini and AERO Tracheobronchial Stents from Roy Cho, MD, MHA. Dr. Cho is Assistant Professor of Medicine, Interventional Pulmonary Dept., Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, Earl E Bakken Medical Devices Center, University of Minnesota, M-Health.
Treatment of a Left Mainstem Endobronchial Tumor Using an AERO Tracheobronchial Stent
A 60-year-old woman with a large left hilar mass presented to the emergency room with worsening dyspnea. Advanced imaging demonstrated total occlusion of the left mainstem (LM) bronchus which was confirmed with direct visualization.
Treatment of Right Middle Lobe Stenosis Using an AEROmini® Through-the-Scope Tracheobronchial Stent
A 75-year-old man who had advanced stage lung cancer presented with worsening dyspnea and productive cough. Under bronchoscopic exam, the right middle lobe (RML) had a 90% stenosis with evidence of post-obstructive pneumonia.
About the Course
Discover the latest advancements in airways stenting. This one-hour educational workshop will focus on the utilization of unique airway stenting technology to address common airway strictures both in the trachea and central airways. Expert faculty will provide participants with a didactic learning experience utilizing innovative stenting technology from both rigid and flexible bronchoscopic methods.
Who Should Attend
Pulmonologists and Thoracic Surgeons who have the clinical capacity to perform airway stenting, and who want to gain knowledge about all aspects of the procedure, from stenting guidelines to challenging case experiences. A minimum of one stent case a week is strongly recommended.
- Advanced techniques and novel airway stenting technology to overcome challenging strictures in the trachea, mainstem bronchi, and peripheral airways
- Indications and contraindications for airway stenting
- Guidelines for appropriate patient selection, successful stent selection, placement and management post-placement
AERO® Tracheobronchial Stent
The AERO Fully Covered Tracheobronchial Stent is delivered to the target site by means of a proprietary, flexible, over-the-wire delivery system.
AEROmini® Tracheobronchial Stent
The AEROmini Fully Covered Tracheobronchial Stent builds on the strengths of the original AERO platform. The stent is delivered to the target site by means of an optimized low profile, through-the-scope or over-the-wire delivery system.
AERO® DV Tracheobronchial Stent
AERO DV promotes accurate placement under direct bronchoscopic visualization without the need for fluoroscopic or wire guidance.
AEROsizer® Tracheobronchial Stent Sizing Device
The novel design of the AEROSIZER enables length and diameter measurement accuracy. A low cost alternative to radiology based airway sizing.
Elation® Pulmonary Balloon Dilator
Offering a new standard in accuracy and control, the Elation Pulmonary Balloon is used to endoscopically dilate strictures of the trachea and bronchi.
BIG60® Inflation Device
The all-in-one, easy-to-use design of our 60 ml inflation device facilitates complete and rapid deflation, reducing procedure time and expense.
MAXXWIRE® Guide Wires
A guide wire specifically designed for interventional pulmonary and gastrointestinal procedures, the MAXXWIRE Guide Wires are offered in lengths of 180cm and 260cm with Super Stiff flexibility.
Patient Brochure – Airway Stents
Prepare your patients for the procedure and the tracheal or bronchial stent placement by outlining the procedure and explaining the possible risks. This brochure will go over preparing for the procedure, what happens during and after the procedure, and things to be aware of.
