Pectus Up will be presented at the 18th CWIG Annual Meeting, which will take place in Florence from 14 to 16 June 2017. This event will welcome international experts on the treatment of chest wall deformities through minimal invasive techniques.

Ventura Medical Technologies will exhibit in its stand n.7, the new technique Taulinoplastia, to all interested surgeons attending the Congress.

All attendees will be able to see the Pectus Up Surgery Kit in detail (materials and operation) and to speak directly with the technical team. For further information on the congress program, please visit its web at  18th CWIG Annual Meeting 2017.

Pectus Up consists of a surgical implant and a set of tools to be used through a new extra-thoracic method to repair Pectus Excavatum called Taulinoplastia. This surgical procedure is minimally invasive and reduces pain and recovery time, as well as any possible complication.

Dr. Manuel López Paredes, which is part of the scientific committee of the congress and also chief of pediatric surgery service in Hospital Vall d’Hebron in Barcelona, has already performed several interventions with the Taulinoplastia method, both in Saint Etienne (France) and in Barcelona (Spain).

During the meeting, Ana Laín Fernández, attending physician of the pediatric surgery service in Hospital Vall d’Hebron, will make a communication that will show the technique of Taulinoplastia and the echocardiographic improvement of the heart (mitral valve) during the intervention.

The oral presentation, named Transesophageal Echocardiography during Surgical Correction of Pediatric Pectus Excavatum: Preliminary Assessment of Intraoperative Cardiologic Changes will be held on Friday 16 during the third session of oral presentations, from 15h to16h.
