NITS symposiumDecember 2016
On Friday 9th December we have transmitted two unique cases of non-intubated thoracic surgeries from the University Hospital Brno to the participants of the NITS symposium held in the Masaryk University campus. Both cases showcased a unique method of lung wedge resection and lobectomy presented by specialists from the National Taiwan University Hospital in Taipei. The non-intubated method of the surgeries was carried out on such a large scale for the very first time in the Czech republic providing the patient the most considerate treatment available. The transmissions using the UltraGrid platform left a very good impression in terms of both images quality (namely from the laparoscopic camera) and the interactivity.

We continue to support the live cases transmissions at the congresses held by the Czech Society of Cardiology. We have deployed UltraGrid for interactive transmissions of interventional cardiology cases from the Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine in Prague and from the teaching hospital in Hradec Králové. A part of the programme was also an open heart surgery we have transmitted from the teaching hospital in Hradec Králové.
In all cases we have transmitted a live cases video including the imagery from variety of instruments and allowed for live and very interactive discussions over the live cases content between the workshop or congress chairs and participants and the surgeons and specialists conducting the cases in the remote hospitals.
