Required level of previous knowledge and experience of participants: intermediate and advanced

Webinar objectives:

  • to define complex lesions of the superficial femoral artery and popliteal artery
  • to set out existing guidelines for the treatment of complex lesions in intermittent claudication and critical ischemia
  • to state the degrees and explain The Peripheral Artery Calcium Scoring System (PACSS)
  • to explain endovascular approaches in complex FP lesions
  • to explain recanalization technique of complex FP chronic occlusion (CTO
  • to present re-entry devices for return to the true lumen
  • to present special balloons for lesion preparation
  • to present the method of intravascular lithotripsy (IVL)
  • to ensure that after the webinar participants have basic information on endovascular approaches and devices in the treatment of complex calcified femoropopliteal lesions

Who is the webinar for:

  • Residents and specialists in interventional radiology, radiology, interventional cardiology, cardiology and vascular surgery and anyone interested in learning and deepening their knowledge about the endovascular treatment of complex calcified lesions of the femoropopliteal artery.
