At this year's Congress of the European Conference on General Thoracic Surgery in Dublin, our colleagues from the product management and sales together with our local distributor Lynton from Great Britain presented our product innovations in the fields of electrosurgery, vessel sealing and surgical laser systems.

The focus of our booth was on our diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser Limax® 120. By means of OR videos and animations, we were able to present its use in the OR. This way, visitors, mainly thoracic surgeons from Europe but also from all over the world, were able to see the laser in action directly at our booth. They were particularly impressed by the combination of excellent cutting and sealing properties with immediate hemostasis on the lung tissue. In addition to the presentation of the products, the ESTS also offered an ideal platform for us to maintain and strengthen personal contact with our customers and local sales partners.

This year we also sponsored a lunch symposium on "latest developments in laser-assisted VATS procedures" together with the speakers Prof. Dr. Bernward Passlick (Freiburg, Germany), Prof. Dr. Thomas Graeter (Löwenstein, Germany) and Dr. Apostolos Nakas (Leicester, Great Britain). In particular, the minimally invasive procedure for laser-assisted lung metastases was presented and discussed. 

Finally, we can look back on a successful congress and are already looking forward to the 28th ESTS Congress in The Hague from 31 May to 03 June 2020.
