The largest clinical area for vascular surgeons in the United States is the treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). This makes it necessary for surgeons to become familiar with the latest treatments and technology so they can provide the best patient care possible. This SVS PAD Skills Course is comprised of an extensive hands-on program designed by vascular surgeons for vascular surgeons. This 1.5-day program gives vascular surgeons the chance to practice the latest procedures on cadavers and benchtop models during small-group simulations.
At the end of the activity, participants will be able to:
- Review guidelines for the treatment of PAD including the recent Global Vascular Guidelines.
- Appreciate novel and advanced endovascular technologies for long segment recanalization, angioplasty, atherectomy and other treatments for extensive atherosclerosis using benchtop models and simulation.
- Discuss gaps in outcomes data for CLTI and generate viable research steps to address these gaps.
