Carotid Pathway: basic carotid surgery hands-on workshop
12 May @ 17:00 - 19:00
Join Claudia Schrimpf, Carl Wahlgren, Alexandra Gratl & Benedikt Reutersberg
This is an online workshop in the Carotid Pathway of the ESVS online workshop series for surgical techniques
The workshop consists of two parts, divided into two separate days. On day one, short introductory presentations will be given for surgical techniques, then the participants will be divided into groups of 4-5 persons and be taught by one tutor to perform the carotid endarterectomy and patchplasty (day 1), as well as eversion endarterectomy (day2). The second day of the course will also be used to ask additional questions from day one.
The participants will receive a vascular simulator kit containing two carotid bifurcations and surgical instruments needed to perform carotid surgery. We recommend that you ask an ‘assistant’ to join you during the sessions. This is essentially a second pair of hands with you for practical reasons i.e. allowing yourself to be all hands on the equipment, with the ‘assistant’ helping ensure a clear image is broadcast.
Kit list (yours to keep):
Target audience: The course is designed for trainees/ vascular surgeons with basic level knowledge. Carotid endarterectomy is one of the elements of the FEBVS practical exam and doing this WS will increase your ability to pass it. It is helpful if you have already participated in the Basic Anastomosis WS, but it is not a requirement. You should also be familiar with general anastomosis techniques: anchor and parachute technique. Prior to the course participants will receive a questionnaire, in which they can state their level of knowledge, so that we can match groups accordingly.
- Sign up, giving a private (home) address and not an address at your hospital / place of work to receive the kit. You will be sent a tracking number by email.
- Receive your kit
- Practice online under the supervision of renowned experts, giving you personalised feedback on your work
