START SUCCESSFULLY YOUR OWN ENDOSCOPIC MV PROGRAM SOON!

The Hands-on Cadaveric Endoscopic Mitral Course

 !! REGISTRATIONS FOR 2020 ARE NOW OPEN !!


In this four days human cadaveric truly hands-on course I want to prepare participants to be really ready to start an endoscopic mitral valve program. In more than twenty years of teaching and guiding surgeons by case-observation and later proctoring I have been a personal witness of the huge gap between being a good surgeon, having the ambition to start such a mini-mitral program and actually being successful in doing it.


All the tips and tricks leading to a good endoscopic exposure of the mitral valve are key in this. Two LIVE-case observations at the OLV Clinic Aalst, lectures, highly instructive wet-lab exercise and a full day of cadaveric training at the exciting facility of ORSI should make this course outstanding and unique.


My ambition is to transfer all this knowledge and hands-on skills step by step to the individual participant to make him or her truly ready for a successful start in their own departments.


Success!

Dr. Frank Van Praet
