Aneurysm, if not treated, can lead to fatal rupture. Different hospital treating patients with RAAA in the different way: open, or endovascular. The results in centers of Excellency with high patient volume with both techniques are good. There is always need to improve the results using the adjunct techniques in treatment of ruptured aorta.
Workshop comprised on several different workstations. In the WS I: participants will work on radiological Workstations for planning the treatment of patient with ruptured aortic pathologies. Furthermore, they will learn to plan and size the prosthesis if the treatment is endovascular. In the WS II is surgical techniques model: the participants will work on plastic models, will create sutureless anastomosis on graft open surgical models, deploy practical balloon in plastic pulsating aortic flow model. The Workstations III’s focus is on abdominal compartment syndrome, early identification, and treatment. Participants will practice different techniques for open abdomen treatment on dummy models. The Workstation IV is with focus on simulation.
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.

The registration fees are 850€ for non-ESVS members and 750€ for ESVS Members. Fees include two overnights (incl. breakfast), lunch and snacks during the course, and two dinners.
The Management of Aortic Rupture Zurich Workshop (MARZ 2017), Zurich, Switzerland, 09/12/2017-11/12/2017 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing
Medical Education (EACCME®) with 13 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the
Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
