|WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
|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.
|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.
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.
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.
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.
