Overview and objectives

This course is aimed at interventional bronchoscopists who wish to learn about the principles and practices of EBUS and advanced interventional bronchoscopy.

The workshop aims to teach and improve operator skills and confidence in a simulated environment using a tailored combination of lectures, group discussions and hands-on training on various simulation models.

Days 1 and 2 will cover all aspects of linear and radial EBUS bronchoscopy including indications, contraindications and clinical applications and will be combined with extensive hands-on training.

Days 2 and 3 will cover important clinical applications and hands-on training in advanced interventional bronchoscopic techniques including rigid bronchoscopy, hot and cold ablative therapy, airway stenting, cryo-lung biopsy, bronchoscopic lung volume reduction and bronchial thermoplasty.
