Dr. Andrés Varela introduces the Pectus Up at the X Congress SECT 2019

Ventura Medical Technologies will take part in the X Congress SECT, of the Spanish Society of Thoracic Surgery will be held in Valladolid on 29, 30 and 31 May.

The venue for the event will be the Valladolid exhibition ground, that will be attended by leading professionals of thoracic surgery worldwide. The local committee of the congress is comprised, among others, by doctors Manuel Castanedo Allende, Mariano García Yuste and José María Matilla González, from the Thoracic Surgery Service of the Hospital Clínico of Valladolid, who have already used the Pectus Up technique in twelve Pectus Excavatum patients.

Among the events scheduled for Thursday, May 30, as part of Symposium II, How do I, Dr. Andrés Varela will introduce the Pectus Up technique, developed by Ventura Medical Technologies as an innovative system for the surgical treatment for Pectus Excavatum.

Dr. Varela is head of the Thoracic Surgery Service in Hospital Puerta de Hierro Majadahonda and in Quirónsalud Hospital, both of Madrid. In the last two years, he has performed 14 surgeries with the Pectus Up, thus becoming the most experienced thoracic surgeon in this new surgical technique in Spain. In addition, he is a reference in the training of surgeons, both thoracic and pediatric, since its interventions have been attended by more than 25 surgery professionals worldwide.

Thanks to the collaboration of Dr. Varela in the improvements introduced in the technique, the age range and the typological diversity of Pectus Excavatum of the patients candidates for this surgery have been extended. The Pectus Up has well-defined and standardized criteria that allow a good replication of the technique by means of an extrathoracic approach, which entails very little postoperative pain and a shorter recovery period than other techniques used to fix this deformity. Therefore, the Pectus Up represents an important step forward in the treatment of Pectus Excavatum, free of complications and serious risks, so it could not miss an event in which the latest developments and new advances in surgery will be discussed.
