The ESVS Academy invites you to their upcoming workshop: Controversial case discussion ACST II trial: to treat or not to treat.

Join: C. Schrimpf, HH Eckstein, B Rantner, A Halliday 

Please note that this workshop is being postponed until further notice.

We apologise for the inconvenience. 


Asymtomatic carotid artery Stenosis is a very common vascular disorder based on generalized atherosclerosis within the vascular bed. Treatment of severe carotid artery stenosis is performed to restore patency and reduce stroke risk. Nevertheless, the procedural risk for disabeling stroke or death is about 1% in CAS and CEA. The course is designed to give the participants wider knowledge useful in their daily practice. The course will highlight the findings of the ACST II trial based on clinical cases and also highlight current treatment guidelines on carotid artery stenosis.

During this workshop, each expert will present a case of carotid artery stenosis and the way the patient was treated (max. 8 min/case for a total of 36 min). This will be followed by a discussion of each case in the expert panel and questions from the audience (36 min/ total). At the end, a summary will be given highlighting the important key points discussed during the session (10 min).

By attending this course, participants will learn, based on real life clinical cases, how the findings of the ACST II impact the treatment for asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis. The participants will be able to decide if they are up to date with the latest carotid surgery treatment recommendations and will be able to adjust their treatment accordingly. The WS aims to help practitioners decide to find the most appropriate therapy for their patient.

Participants’ qualifications

The Controversial case discussion is designed for every vascular surgeon, vascular surgeon in training or interventional radiologist, angiologist or interested general practitioners who deal with asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis during daily practice. A general knowledge of therapies for asymptomatic carotid stenosis is expected. Also experienced surgeons can benefit from this workshop as findings of the ACST II trial and current treatment guidelines in relation to real life clinical cases and treatment strategies will be discussed. Of note: the workshop does not explain how to perform carotid surgery or stenting.

The course is open to vascular surgeons, vascular surgeons in training, vascular nurses, angiologists and interventional radiologists as well as technologists from all around the world.
