Educational needs and expected outcome
In the endovascular era, conventional vascular surgery plays a limited but relevant role in the management of arterial disease, frequently regarding complex cases.
Its efficacy and safety may be negatively affected by the reduction of volume and training opportunities in teaching centres.
This 2-day course will focus on crucial aspects and reinforce the surgical skills indispensable during arterial repair.
It will also address the hybrid procedures and complications that may arise during endovascular treatment.
The educational context will be very interactive and stimulating.
The hands-on component of the course will be carried out on fresh cadavers. It will aim at improving knowledge and confidence in anatomical access to the femoro-popliteal-tibial arteries, the thoracic and abdominal aorta and aortic branches.
Tutors are experts in the field of Vascular Surgery.
The course is open to young consultant vascular and general surgeons and advanced-level trainees in Vascular or General Surgery.
The official language is English.
