Critical Issues in Aortic Endografting will address numerous aspects of the latest technology and controversies for aortic interventionalists around the world. A unique addition to the program this year is the ‘Coolest Case’ sessions – where we will learn from some of the most experienced aortic interventionalists about their near-misses, proudest moments, and most creative saves.

A one-day in person free-of-charge event which will be focused on guide wire technology and its application to infra-inguinal arterial Chronic Total Occlusions (CTO). The meeting is planned to happen in person on January the 15th in St Pancras meeting rooms (St Chad's Street, London. WCH1 8AG https://www.stpancrasmeetingrooms.co.uk).

The programme will alternate a few dynamic and interactive lectures to challenging cases discussion and hands-on sessions: several CTO silicone models will be on site ready to be navigated by the participants, who will be able to use different guide wires to cross the artificial CTOs under the guidance of two cameras. 

The target of this event are Vascular Surgeons, Interventional Radiologists, Nurses, Radiographers and Vascular Scientists.  In particular registrars/fellows/junior consultants are invited to submit their most challenging infra-inguinal case (SFA-pop or BTK) to lorenzo.patrone@nhs.net (including just a brief description of the case and some key images) in order to be selected to present it live case during the case discussion session. 

The presenter of the best case will have the privilege to attend MLCTO congress 2022 in Belgium (https://www.endovascular-mlcto.com) completely free of charge (travel, subscription fee and accommodation will be covered by the organisation).

The flyer below details the new digital learning platform run by Gore for Vascular and Radiology Trainees (ST6+) and consists of 8 Vascular modules running from October through to May. Each module is related to a  patient Case, and is broken down into 3 sections:

  1. Case & Patient Background
  2. Planning & Treatment Options
  3. Outcome and Follow up

The module material is available online over 3 weeks through ppt slides, with written questions posed at the end of each section for the trainees to answer. There is also a discussion Forum where the delegates can ask questions to the trainer and the group.

At the end of the 3 weeks there is a ‘live streamed’ session by the Physician who compiled the case material, who will add further detail to the case and answer any questions that the delegates may have.

4 of the sessions will be EMEA sessions and 4 will be UK only sessions.
