Objective: Acute limb ischaemia is a life-threating condition that requires a prompt diagnosis and rapid therapeutic interventions, since the prognoses of the limbs and the survival of the patients are mainly dependant on a fast therapeutic algorithm. The objectives of this course are to describe the phatophisiology of acute limb ischaemia; to describe and categorize acute limb ischemia; and, to get familiar with the current guidelines. The hands-on sessions and recorded cases sessions will lead the attendees to learn about the different treatment options (open and endovascular) and how to apply them in the different categories, as well as learn about their potential complications and outcomes.

Full Programme

Target audience: The course is designed for Vascular Surgeons, Angiologists, Interventional Radiologists and Cardiologists involved in the management of patients with acute limb ischaemia.

CME: CME accreditation is being requested for this session.
