More than 60 thoracic surgeons attend the Pectus Up seminar organized by Ventura Medical Technologies
The Fourth International Joint Meeting on Thoracic Surgery held in Barcelona from November 28 to 30 gathered thoracic surgeons from all over the world willing to learn about medical and technological advances in the thoracic area.
The attendees enjoyed several oral presentations and videos introduced by great professionals working on new techniques and products. The event offered the speakers the possibility to relate their experience in innovation and, at the same time, to resolve concerns raised by the audience.
Ventura Medical Technologies did not want to miss the opportunity to introduce improvements with the Pectus Up, the implant for the treatment of Pectus Excavatum, which is being marketed since 2015. The company benefited from the collaboration of the most specialized Spanish surgeons in this new technique, coming from Barcelona, Madrid and Valladolid, who took advantage of the occasion offered by the event to explain their experience with the product and the undergone improvements since the completion of the clinical trial, as well as the value of their views, which is crucial for the development of those improvements.
The presentation of Pectus Up had the invaluable support of Dr. Laureano Molins, head of the Thoracic Surgery Service at the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona and organizer of the event, together with Dr. Andrés Varela, Head of the Thoracic Surgery Service at the Hospital Puerta de Hierro Majadahonda of Madrid, Dr. José María Matilla, expert in the surgical treatment of chest wall deformities in the community of Castilla y León, Dr. Manuel López-Paredes, head of the Pediatric Surgery Service at the Hospital Vall d’Hebron of Barcelona, and the engineer Lluís Cassou, innovation manager of Ventura Medical Technologies. All of them, with their presentations, aroused the interest of a large number of surgeons.
Through his experience in the treatment of the Pectus Excavatum with different surgical techniques, including the Pectus Up, they were able to demonstrate the competitive advantages of the Pectus Up in comparison with other methods, because of its simplicity and replicability, and the improvements involving both the patients and the surgeons themselves.
The event was a great success and a large number of attendees, including several surgeons from different countries interested in the technique, which led to a fruitful discussion between speakers and attendees that allowed expanding the knowledge on the Pectus Up on the international stage.
