About this course

Introductory words from the course director

Thoracoscopy represents a remarkable achievement in the field of minimally invasive surgery. In this masterclass, we will provide a concise overview of the fundamentals of thoracoscopic surgery through recorded webinars. The on-site lectures will be dedicated to showcasing, describing surgical techniques and engaging in discussions with participants.

By using a model of ventilated anatomical parts and anesthetized sheep, this masterclass will allow you to approach the reality of small animal thoracoscopic surgery most effectively. Three renowned experts will be your guides for a unique training experience tailor-made for any veterinary surgeon or resident with some experience in mini-invasive surgery.
