Interactive online seminar - Optimising medical treatment of patients with PAD


Virtual Room 1

ESVS Academy session
06 October 2020 20:00 - 21:00

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

Patients with peripheral arterial disease PAD are at high risk for the development of life-threatening major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) and major adverse limb events (MALE). Patients with PAD have a poor prognosis with a higher reported 5-year mortality rate than patients with breast cancer or Hodgkin’s lymphoma. 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. Focus will lie on clinical decision-making for the treatment of patients with PAD. 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.

Learning objectives :

Learn the pro’s and con’s of new patient management approaches in patient requiring intervention for PAD

How can conservative treatment improve the outcome of your intervention

Focus on practical use of contemporary vascular protection strategies in order to reduce the risk of limb and cardiovascular events. 

 

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