During the conference, many domestic and international experts of cardiac surgery were invited for academic exchange with the purpose of learning the latest innovation and proactively seeking for improvement. Specifically, the three-day conference provided a platform for sharing the updated academic advancement and clinical experience through lectures, panel discussions, case studies and operation demonstrations.
During the session of Interventional Treatment and Open Surgery for Aortic Disease held on December 18, Professor Weiguo Ma of Beijing Anzhen Hospital delivered a speech on "Surgical Stent for Elephant Trunk Procedure: Innovative Stent and Application Outcome," in which he compared several kinds of stent products used in the elephant trunk procedure. According to statistics, as of December 2016, over 23,000 CRONUS™ have been implanted worldwide, far more than any product of its kind. Professor Weiguo Ma pointed out, an ideal surgical stent for the elephant trunk procedure should have the following features: wide scope of indications, easy operation, no need of perspective and guide wire, excellent match with aortic wall, outstanding flexibility, stent graft with tapered size and good biocompatibility. As China's only stent-graft used in the elephant trunk procedure, CRONUS™ offers simpler treatment by combining traditional open surgery and advanced interventional approaches, which significantly reduces the surgical trauma and risk, alleviate suffering for patients and improves surgical success rate.
