VATS Workshop – Supported by Medtronic
July 9 - July 10
This is a two-part, face-to-face workshop. Course facilitators are A/Prof Gavin Wright and Mr Naveed Alam.
Part one aims to provide a theoretical and practical foundation for transitioning from open to VATS, with a focus on advanced wedge resection techniques, lobectomy and mediastinal surgery. Part two will focus on segmentectomy and complex lobectomy.
Participants will engage in discussion about definition, benefits, instrumentation, equipment, positioning, oncological efficacy, surgical technique and have the opportunity to practice these techniques in a wet lab on a specially adapted VATS model.
