NITS symposium

December 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.
