Event Specialty: Bronchoscopy
Auris is proud to support the Society of Advanced Bronchoscopy’s upcoming Winter CME Program. There will be three opportunities to learn about the MonarchR Platform featuring robotic-assisted bronchoscopy.
Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the Hands-On Lab with the Monarch Platform, proctored by Dr. Susan Garwood. Susan Garwood, MD is the National Physician Lead Pulmonary Group of HCA Healthcare Physician Services Group.
Attendees can also learn about robotic-assisted bronchoscopy with Monarch at our exhibit table.
Auris is the exclusive Reception Sponsor post-meeting and will offer physicians the opportunity to test-drive the Monarch Platform.
If you still need to sign up for the SAB CME Winter program, on-site registration is recommended.SAB Winter CME Course
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.
