Hands-on objectives:

  • Identify indications for endovascular treatment of the aortoiliac segment
  • Explain the principles of the CERAB technique - reconstruction of aortoiliac bifurcation with covered stents
  • Explain how to plan CERAB on CT angiography and select appropriate covered stents
  • List and explain which covered stents on the market can be used for CERAB
  • List and explain which guidewires, catheters and balloons to choose at CERAB
  • Through real practical case examples and comments, explain to the participants step by step the CERAB procedure and how to perform it in routine work
  • Provide participants with complete information so that after the workshop they can critically and independently make a decision about the indication and the possibility of performing the CERAB procedure

Who is the hands-on for:

  • Endovascular specialists who routinely perform interventions on the aortoiliac segment, and who are interested in learning and deepening knowledge about the possibilities of endovascular reconstruction of aortic bifurcation with covered stents.
