Thoracic Surgery with High Frequency Jet Ventilation – a successful joint approach: The goal of the workshop was to provide practical training to surgeons in different fields of thoracic surgery such as
- Ventilation Management
- Anatomical Segment Resection
- Trachea Resection - Bifurcation Resection
- Tangential and Cylindrical Resection of Vena Cava
All operations were performed at a living, sedated sheep that was ventilated by the monsoon III, a High Frequency Jet Ventilator from ACUTRONIC Medical Systems. The workshop was fully booked and has been a great success.
Due to the positive feedback, two other workshop of this kind has been planned for 2015. Furthermore, it is likely that this workshop will be approved as “recommended workshop” for the advanced training programs of DGT, the German association for thoracic surgery.
