We are pleased to announce a course in the aortic Pathway!
Join: Zoran Rancic, Christos Karkos, Frederico Bastos Goncalves, Fernando Gajardo, Igor Koncar, Ferdinanc Serracino-Inglott & Enrico Gallitto
Endovascular procedures on aortic aneurysms and dissection are increasingly encountered in clinical practice. Such a procedure requires careful and accurate sizing and planning as this step will prevent unexpected and undesirable complications during the intervention. In order to improve accuracy, planning of aortic procedures by segmentation, creating centre lumen line and stretching the aorta measuring accurately lengths while orthogonal cross sections are used for accurate diameter measurements. Beside length, and diameter measurement of angulation and in advance definition of C-arm position secure safe and precise stent-graft deployment. A software will be used to make demonstrations during the course. The theoretical part of the workshop will introduce participants to the pathology of thoracic aorta, important features diagnosis, steps of the TEVAR stent-graft deployment, and the consequences of mistakes occurred at this step. Specific clinical situations will be addressed and pathognomonic signs of different thoracic diseases. Thus the course is designed to give the participants wider knowledge useful in their daily practice.
By attending this course, participants will familiarize themselves with one software for sizing and planning endovascular procedures, learn how to use it for specific thoracic pathologies (aneurysm, rupture, dissection) and how to prevent the procedural complications through precise and adequate measuring.
Target audience: Basic to moderate. The course is designed for vascular and endovascular surgeons, vascular surgeons in training, endovascular physicians in training. Basic knowledge of vascular anatomy and physiology is expected. For the active participation in Sizing and Planning of emergent TEVAR the understanding of acute aortic pathology (dissection and rupture) is required.
Registration and Cancellation policy: € 28 for ESVS members and € 33 for non-members. Please note that the course is dependent on final registration numbers.
