We had the delight to help run the first workshop using Eco’s Microwave ablation catheter for varicose veins treatment. This was convened at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital in Singapore by our friend Chuo Ren Leong, MD senior consultant and deputy HOD for general surgery at KTPH.
We managed to demonstrate the microwave ablation technique to a bunch of enthusiastic vascu lar surgeons from Indonesia by performing three cases of varicose veins during Wednesday morning. Case demonstration was interspersed with helpful lectures with tips and tricks using the device by Dr Wong and Dr Dexter Chan, Consultant Vascular Surgery from KTPH. Had a fruitful morning exchanging ideas with our delightful Indonesian colleagues.
Look forward to the next workshop! Many thanks to all for their hard work including Daisy and Ade from the Indonesia side who supported the running of the workshop. Also we would like to thank the nursing staff from day surgery at Ktph for their help and time.
