MET in Emphysema Valve Therapy


MET in Emphysema Therapy with Intra Bronchial Valves

Thoraxklinik Heidelberg Amalienstrasse 5 - "Rohrbacher Schlösschen"
69126 Heidelberg

Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) with the Spiration Valve System (SVS) is a promising treatment option for emphysema patients that has been investigated, used, and discussed for some time now. Not only have the first positive results already been demonstrated, but the safe application of the method has also been ascertained. However, the success of the procedure depends on the selection of the patients, the treatment pattern, thorough training, and patient follow-up after the procedure.

During this Medical Expert Training, experienced trainers will provide an overview of the basics of BLVR, the procedure and selected clinical results. Other applications such as the treatment of damaged lungs resulting in air leak with SVS valves will also be discussed. A live transmission of a valve procedure from Thoraxklinik Heidelberg, time for hands-on experience with a broncho model, and discussion with the experts is included.
