The meeting was constructed by the principle of a discussion: in a free form there was a discussion of the clinical cases presented by participants. Special attention was paid on the questions far from permission so far: age brackets of use of tools, indication and contraindication, application restriction, etc. Among others also the first patients operated with application of VEPTR in Russia (clinic of a children's vertebrologiya of the Novosibirsk NIITO) were discussed. The discussion was conducted by Campbell, Ohlin (Denmark) and Riise (Norway). The reports devoted to change of function of lungs during application of VEPTR and also the new modification of VEPTR-2 tools considerably expanding possibilities of the surgeon were submitted.

The meeting turned out extremely interesting and useful.

So, some from

participants were brought for discussion by data of yet not operated patients to listen to opinion of colleagues. As always, informal communication of the experts who participated in this forum was especially interesting.
