You are invited to join ETHICON for a 90-minute session on our Thoracic and Cadiovascular Simulators, guided by Tomaz Stupnik and SCTS TPDs. Please register for a session below. 

With experts on hand for sharing tips and tricks, the three various Cardiovascular simulators gives you the opportunity to practice and perfect your anastomotic skills as well as your aortic root, aortic valve and mitral valve techniques.  

Using the thoracic Stupnik simulator you will be able perform a series of exercises each of which address a core VATS skill such as lung manipulation, tissue dissection with energy devices, wedge resection with endoscopic staplers, and dissection and transection of pulmonary vessels.  

We will also be launching the NEW segmentectomy module so this is a session not to miss!
