AATS Mechanical Support for the Heart and Lung Symposium
AATS Symposium on Mechanical Support for the HEART and LUNG: a two-day state of the art symposium that will focus on contemporary and novel mechanical circulatory support devices, techniques, and approaches to support the heart and lung – both inside and outside the body! Learn about the latest technologies to support and treat patients with advanced heart and lung failure. World-class faculty will present on a variety of topics including durable and temporary mechanical circulatory support devices including VADs, ECMO, para-corporeal support, ex vivo heart and ex vivo lung perfusion technology. Topics include durable VAD support for destination therapy and new technologies in mobile heart and lung support as well as bridging to heart and lung transplantation. The program will offer numerous sessions designed to create forums for clinicians, scientists, and industry to collaborate and network on topics important to patient care and advancement of the field. Program Highlights Featuring Latest Devices and Techniques: • MCS • ECMO • Artificial lung • Biohybrid therapies • Catheter based/percutaneous devices • What is new in the device pipeline • Latest in ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) n Latest in ex vivo heart perfusion (EVHP) • In vivo organ perfusion strategies • Normothermic Regional Perfusion (NRP) for Organ Donation
