The ICC meeting, focusing on coronary surgery, will be organized this weekend in New York at the Marriott Marquis from December 6 to December 8. In one lecture I will address the learning process on OPCAB surgery on Saturday Dec 7 in the late morning. This lecture is enveloped in three seminars, directly focusing on the OPCAB procedure guide. Each seminar will be of 2 hours. One will take place before the lecture and two in the afternoon. All three will have the same content. The seminars will address the most important aspects of OPCAB and will allow extensive interaction and open discussion.
Anastomotic seminars at the last IACTS meeting in Chennai India Feb 22 2019
A massive number of participants (49) participated at our whole day anastomotic seminar. We had planned 25-30 but were able to provide each of them the mandatory instruments and grafts. They all went through the deconstruction of an anastomosis into teachable components and they then later applied these deconstructions, reconstructing the anastomosis in our low fidelity setup. As can be seen on this pitcure the intensity and concentration was there. Maybe the space was rather small, but so is life if we want to accomodate each one. Our next anastomotic workshop is this sunday at the Maastricht EVC congress.
