Hands-on Device Training

The Hands-on Device Training (HDT) sessions aim to provide an overview of the different devices and techniques available for specific topics as well as to allow hands-on experience for the participants.

After a short kick-off presentation by the HDT co-ordinators, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the specifics as well as safe and effective use of the available technology in an interactive setting.

Each HDT will feature a round-table discussion with the coordinators at the end of the session, allowing participants time to ask questions and provide feedback.

This year's training sessions will provide an overview of the different devices and techniques available for the following topics:

A closer look at closure devices
Central lines and ports
Embolisation: materials and tools
Peripheral mechanical thrombectomy
Stroke thrombectomy
Tumour ablation
Varicose veins
Vertebral augmentation

Participation will be free of charge. However, as HDT sessions offer practical medical training, participation is for qualified medical professionals only.
