For the first time ever, ESVS is offering fantastic hands-on workshops on open and endo surgery using cadavers and mini-pigs!

Join us for an enriching learning experience on January 14th and 15th 2020 in Hamburg, Germany.

Course 1: Vascular reconstructions in living animals (mini pigs)
A course on anesthetized pigs will be offered to train access to the carotid artery and perform an endarterectomy with a patch plasty. Additionally, access to the abdominal aorta will be trained, and the participants learn to dissect the aorta, clamp the artery and perform a tube interposition with an alloplastic graft.

Course 2: Endovascular treatment in living animals (mini pigs)
The second course on anesthetized pigs aims to train endovascular skills for vascular surgeons and vascular surgeons in training. Puncture techniques will be trained, catheterization techniques and fluoroscopy. Radiation protection is trained and balloon angioplasty and stenting of the common carotid artery and the abdominal aorta as well.
