Professor Han has invented a series of stents for airway diseases, has built a brand “Han’s Stent”. He has developed approximately 40 patents and over 10 interventional techniques to fill the gap in the clinical medical devices, most of interventional equipments fill the gap both at home and abroad.
Professor Han has developed 7 workshops on airway diseases starting 2012, and has trained interventional physicians from various departments, including interventional radiology, respiratory, chest surgery, oncology, and ICU, across 28 provinces in China.
