Event Specialty: Bronchoscopy
We look forward to seeing you at CHEST and discussing the experience from over 1000 robotic bronchoscopy cases done in the United States!
Visit us at our booth to learn more about the Monarch Platform and robotic-assisted bronchoscopy. You can get a demo firsthand and test drive our technology on our simulated iPads.
Located near the CHEST game area and Hall I1.
Join us for our Scientific Symposium on Monday, October 21 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the New Orleans Marriott (Studio 7 & 8). Our event will feature a panel of four physicians on the topic “Rethinking Bronchoscopy: State of the Science & Future Directions.” You can RSVP here to guarantee your spot. Note, dinner is available from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.
Dr. Alexander Chen, Associate Professor of Medicine & Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine, will present “Multicenter, Prospective Pilot and Feasibility Study of Robotic Assisted Bronchoscopy for Peripheral Pulmonary Lesions.”
Complications from bronchoscopy are rare and most often minor, but if they occur, may include breathing difficulty, vocal cord spasm, hoarseness, slight fever, vomiting, dizziness, bronchial spasm, infection, low blood oxygen, bleeding from biopsied site, or an allergic reaction to medications. Only rarely do patients experience other more serious complications (for example, collapsed lung, respiratory failure, heart attack and/or cardiac arrhythmia).
Adverse effects from both Mini-PCNL and Ureteroscopy include pain, urinary tract infection, fever, hematuria (presence of blood in urine), exposure to low levels of radiation, retained or residual stones.
Adverse effects from ureteroscopy may include pain, perforation or injury to the ureter, resulting in extravasation of fluid and urine (urinoma), stricture of the ureter with risk of subsequent obstruction (hydronephrosis needing further repair), rare avulsion of the ureter, urinary blood clots, residual stones.
PCNL access may result in minor and major adverse effects. Minor effects include fever and nephrostomy leak. Major adverse effects may include injuries to pleura, liver, spleen, large vessels with related bleeding, gallbladder, duodenum, jejunum, colon with related cutaneous fistula, fever, pain, ileus, elevated counts.
Major adverse effects related to stone removal may include infection and urosepsis, intravascular fluid overload, extravasation of fluid, and post percutaneous nephrolithotomy bleeding.
