Diagnosis and treatment of popliteal artery aneurysm
4 November @ 17:00 - 19:00
The ESVS Academy invites you to their upcoming workshop: Diagnosis and treatment of popliteal artery aneurysm.
Join: Igor Koncar, Martin Bjorck, Anne Cervin, Michele Antonello
Popliteal artery aneurysm is limb and life-threatening condition due to its complications – thrombosis and rupture. Low incidence of this disease impede gaining expertise in treatment. Open repair of PAA is both challenging and controversial since multiple options are available and evidence to support any strategy is scarce. From the diagnostic dilemma of screening to controversial questions of approach (dorsal/medial) and conduit (graft/vein) selection and decision to choose endovascular solution when results are still difficult to compare with invasive open repair.
Through interactive case discussion model and voting of the audience experts in this field will guide you through all these controversies and many more, share with audience their experience, and openly discuss all arguments used to select treatment strategy in these patients.
By attending this course, participants will know the indications for some specific treatment modalities and be able to decide if they are the most appropriate for given patient. A thought that there is no unique and perfect treatment modality for each patient will be presented and highlighted.
The course is designed for basic level of knowledge of pathology and pathophysiology of the aneurysm disease as well as knowledge about clinical presentation is expected. The participants should be familiar with diagnostic procedures.
