Beginner-to-Advanced Tracheal Stenting Laboratory

Wednesday, October 24
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Sponsored By: 

Fees: $1,050 early / $1,150 late

Sponsor: Infiniti Medical, LLC

This laboratory is designed to teach beginners, as well as those with more experience, the indications and technical aspects of performing tracheal stenting:
• Case selection criteria
• Medical and interventional management
• Trouble-shooting
• Difficult and complex case treatment
• Handling and avoiding complications
• Follow-up instructions for clients and referring vets

Each attendee should expect to learn about the decision-making process of tracheal stenting from beginning to end and will go through patient positioning, obtaining appropriate measurement radiographs, performing measurements and stent selection, and stent placement under fluoroscopic guidance. Focusing on basic as well as the most technical aspects of tracheal stenting will permit more time for case discussion and more advanced demonstration of selected stent placement tips and techniques as well as stent removal.
