Webinar

Official language: english

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

Webinar objectives:

  • To define a key anatomical aspects of Hostile Neck (HN)
  • To explain how to overcome limitations of standard EVAR procedure in HN
  • To inform participants how to make proper interventional plan in HN environment
  • To get insight knowledge and understand steps in performing ChEVAR and EndoAnchor
  • To specify the endovascular materials necessary to perform ChEVAR
  • To specify EndoAnchor fixations materials and principles of intervention
  • To show how to use ChEVAR technique and EndoAnchor fixations safely and efficiently through intervention cases from practice
  • To discusses technical aspects and limitations of advanced endovascular treatment options in HN

Who is the webinar for:

  • All physicans who perform EVAR and are interested in learning more about how to approach to patients with Hostile Neck, what are endovascular options in treatment, indications, benefits and potential complications of ChEVAR and EndoAnchoring fixation.
