The Advanced Lung Disease: Novel Therapies and Controversies Conference will have appealing state-of-the-art multidisciplinary lectures centered on the conditions diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases affecting the lungs, along with the cystic fibrosis, COPD, Interstitial Lung Disease, pulmonary hypertension, and adult congenital heart diseases. The course will also feature panel sessions to provide clinicians the opportunity to discuss specific treatment challenges, the role of the caregivers, transplant coordinators, and logistics of transplantation and methods that will be useful in their practices.
Advanced lung diseases affect a huge part of the population and provide significantly to morbidity and mortality. Novel therapies for diseases such as cystic fibrosis, COPD, Interstitial Lung Disease, pulmonary hypertension, and adult congenital heart diseases have furnished patients a chance at a new and healthier life. Transplantation is a significant part of the innovation for presenting these patients a new lease on life, but there are many steps and considerations along the way that can add to quality life years. The conference seeks to provide practitioners, trainees, patients, and associated staff with a look at the horizon of advanced lung therapies. Novel therapies such as ex vivo lung perfusion, airway stenting, biopsies, gene therapy, stem cells, bronchial valves, and lung volume reduction therapy will be addressed. Break out sessions will discuss the role of the caregivers, transplant coordinators, and logistics of transplantation.
