Based on the huge success of the EVST Aortic Competition (online), EVST invites you to another edition of the competition – the EVST PAD Competition (online) on 6th May 2024, with a CLTI case and TASC C/D aortoiliac lesion!

Participation in this PAD competition is limited to EVST members, but all who wish to watch are invited to join. To register for the audience, please email info@esvs.org.

Moderators: Dr. Petar Zlatanovic, Dr. Donna Wouters, Dr. Moritz Wegner and Dr. Harm Ebben

This competition is designed to enhance and promote knowledge in managing patients with chronic limb-threatening ischaemia and TASC C/D aortoiliac lesions, starting from preoperative planning until postoperative patient management (whole spectrum of care). Applicants should have experience in the management of CLTI patients with complex aortoiliac lesions before applying for this competition.

How will it work?

Once participants have submitted their motivation letter, they will be invited to complete a quiz. Candidates will be shortlisted based on their motivation letter and quiz score. The four best candidates will be selected and will receive a preselected case with diagnostic CTA to solve. Each selected participant should prepare to present a solution for the proposed case (~5 min presentation + ~5 min discussion) starting from pre- and postoperative planning, continuing with procedure itself and finishing with postoperative workup. The case description with all necessary data will be provided beforehand. A jury consisting of faculty and EVST moderators will announce the winner at the end of the competition and afterwards, each of the senior faculty will present the actual solution that was carried out! All of this will be performed in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere, so don’t be stressed!
