EACTS Member: €845.00
Fee includes lunch, refreshments and a dinner on Monday 11 December.
Kindly note due to the nature of this course, registration is limited to 15 delegates
This course provides cardiothoracic surgeons in training or anyone wishing to enhance their experience with didactic teaching, hands on cadaveric operative experience and practical demonstrations in the surgical techniques and skills needed in heart and lung transplantation, short term and durable mechanical assist devices and ex vivo organ perfusion.
Delegates will have the opportunity to undertake cardiac and lung transplantation in human cadavers under the guidance of a faculty of experienced surgeons. Candidates will also implant left ventricular assist devices, practice cannulation for ECMO and Impella and gain practical experience of ex vivo lung perfusion. Many technologies and devices are also demonstrated in small group teaching sessions.
This is an intensive two day course of lectures, debate and practical hands on surgical practice and opportunity.
Skills Level 2 – Residents in the final years of training and surgeons at the beginning of independent practice.
- Understanding of selection of patients for heart and lung transplantation, technical aspects of the surgery and clinical outcomes
- Donor organ selection criteria and retrieval including the use of machine perfusion systems
- Understanding the application of short term mechanical circulatory support and hands on practice of implantation of devices such as ECMO and Impella
- Understanding the role of durable mechanical assist devices and practice of implantation of devices in human cadavers
- Practicing the technique of heart and lung transplantation in human cadavers
- Practicing the technique of ex vivo lung perfusion
