MET in Advanced Patient Selection Methods


MET in Advanced Patient Selection Methods for Emphysema Valve Therapy

ENDO CLUB Academy Hamburg-Eppendorf University Hospital (UKE)
Martinistrasse 52
20246 Hamburg

Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) with Intra Bronchial Valves is a promising treatment option for emphysema patients, that has demonstrated first positive results as well as safe application of the method. However, the success of the procedure depends on the selection of the patients, the treatment pattern, thorough training and the follow-up of patients after the procedure.

This Medical Expert Training will discuss the criteria of patient selection with BLVR therapy with Intra Bronchial Valves (IBV). Participants will learn about inclusion and exclusion criteria and target lobe identification for valve therapy based on the correlation of emphysema heterogeneity, fissure completeness and perfusion analysis. An introduction to current developments in CT based software analysis of lung parenchyme may show an opportunity to standardise patient selection. An interactive discussion of case studies will round up this training course. Based on complete data sets, participants will learn to put the basics of patient selection into practice. The training course will help participants to establish a best practice for valve therapy services at their sites.

Target Group / Qualification:
Physicians with a certain amount of experience in intra bronchial valve therapy who seek to improve or standardise patient selection for emphysema valve therapy.

Course Directors:
Prof. Ralf Eberhardt, Heidelberg, Germany

Associated Prof. Arschang Valipour, Vienna, Austria

Course fee:
- EUR 150 for Physicians
- EUR 50 for Nurse Assistants joining their Physician

The course fee will be invoiced to you after the registration.
