ESTS – Hands on Sessions at 23rd European Conference on General Thoracic Surgery
Wednesday 3 June 2015
ESTS announces a new initiative within the annual conference. This specific session will be a hands-on session facilitated by our industry partners. The attendees will have the opportunity to be introduced to new or niche technology by Key Opinion Leaders in the field. The lectures will be short and compact. This will be followed by the opportunity to trial and experience the technology by already set working stations, mentored by experienced faculty.
