Interactive online seminar - Antithrombotic strategy in elective and acute interventions


Virtual Room 2

ESVS Academy session
29 September 2020 20:00 - 21:00

This interactive online seminar is aimed at all nurses, (interventional) radiologists, vascular surgeons and trainees.

During and after interventions patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) are at highest risk for the thrombotic and bleeding complications. The results of the VOYAGER PAD trial show that patients may benefit from the novel combination of anticoagulation and antiplatelets. The antithrombotic risk must be weighed against the bleeding risk, however.  Focus of the online seminar will lie on clinical decision-making prior, during and after your intervention for PAD in your patients. Participants are cordially invited to send in their cases or questions beforehand to discuss during the seminar. Expert faculty and participants will share their experiences and provide practical considerations for best practice in your own hospital and practice. In a live online interactive patient case-based discussion the evidence from the latest trials (COMPASS and VOYAGER) and recent guidelines for the management of patients with PAD will be put into perspective.  - Learn the pro’s and con’s of low dose anticoagulation in PAD interventions. 

Learning objectives:

How to deal with the anticoagulated patient before, under and after vascular surgery – covering both open and endovascular procedures.

What is your repertoire of oral antiplatelets and anticoagulation – from clopidogrel to vitamin K1 antagonists and to an increasing number of direct anticoagulants. 

Pre-learning will be sent to registrants ahead of the online session.
