The course will cover the key steps in treatment of acute aortic rupture (thoracic, thoracoabdominal, and abdominal). The treatment starts form announcement to post-operative patient care. The benefit for the participants will be to be aware that the hospital algorithm based on standardized operating and management procedure is the key for successful treatment and reduction of mortality and morbidity in treatment of ruptured aorta. At the end of the workshop, candidates should have assimilated the treatment key points, completed an algorithm adapted to their respective centres and to “confident” whilst dealing on with patients suffering aortic rupture. Click here to view the preliminary programme of the course.
