Educational Levels

The courses on Vascular Interventions in 2006 were offered on a basic and advanced level:

The Basic Vascular Interventions course was designed for physicians and theatre staff who wish to offer endovascular treatments to their patients. The course concentrated on organisation, basic catheter and wire skills. Different approaches to the treatment of peripheral vascular disease were highlighted as well as inclusion and exclusion criteria including other appropriate treatments. Practical skills were broken down into simple step by step algorithms. Workshops offered further practical advice including how to stay out of trouble, how to get out of it if you have not managed the former and when to call for help. The invited speakers were European experts in their field and also offered a web based support after the course.

The Advanced Vascular Interventions course was designed for interventional practitioners who had at least 2 years experience of peripheral endovascular intervention and who wished to progress to more complex interventions in more challenging situations which are often life or limb threatening, or who wished to update themselves in these techniques. By the end of the course delegates were ready to be proctored through their initial experience and received web based support from the experts.

The Basic Vascular Interventions Course, Lublin/PL

 

The two day basic course was attended by many Polish residents, but also attracted physicians from other countries. T. Jargiello spoke about Interventional Radiology in Poland    ... and K. Hausegger about dialysis interventions.
M. Szczerbo-Trojanowska and her team put together an outstanding course ... including workgroups to discuss the content of the lectures in detail. Due to the small size of the groups, congress attendees had the chance to ask the lecturers their questions and discuss a variety of cases.
