Welcome to the “8th International Uniportal VATS Course - Live Surgery, Drylab and Wetlab”. This is a three-day-masterclass symposium under scientific leadership of the Klinikum Ernst von Bergmann, Health and Medical University Potsdam, Germany together with the University Hospital Charité in Berlin, Germany, the University Hospital in Coruña, Spain and the Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital, Tongji University Shanghai, China.

The first masterclass course took place in the year 2014 and has become the traditional course where all experts in the field of uniportal VATS meet and exchange their experiences with participants from all over the world. The course is now well established and provides training at the highest level. Our goal is to promote a non-dogmatic learning environment that brings together people from different centers and schools of thoracic surgery from all around the globe.

Whether you are an experienced surgeon or still in training, this course will deepen your knowledge in Uniportal VATS.

This symposium will take place in Potsdam and will address “Uniportal VATS for Sublobar and Complex  Resections” through lectures, discussions and video sessions on the first day. The first part of day 2 will include Live Surgery of major pulmonary resections via Uniportal VATS, and in the second part clinical cases will be presented and discussed while at the same time there will be a drylab (Lung models and ENB). The third day of this symposium is a Hands-on class (Wetlab) for a limited group.

We look forward to your participation!
