Basic Vascular Course, Zagreb (HR), November 12-13, 2010

 

This course is designed for physicians who wish to offer basic endovascular treatments to their patients. It will concentrate on introducing organisation and basic catheter and wire skills. Different approaches to the treatment of peripheral vascular disease will be highlighted as well as inclusion and exclusion criteria and other appropriate treatments. Dedicated techniques for iliac, SFA and BTK interventions will be presented. Dialysis interventions management in Interventional Radiology will complete the course. 

Practical skills will be broken down into simple step by step algorithms to obtain a successful technical and clinical outcome. Workshops will offer further practical advice including how to stay out of trouble, how to get out of it if you have not managed the former and when to call for help. The invited speakers are European experts in their field. Web-based support after the course is also offered by these experts.
