2007 Annual Meeting Postgraduate Course
SAVS Postgraduate Course
TEVAR-Thoracic Endovascular Aorta Repair
Course Directors: Scott L. Stevens, MD, Mark Farber, MD
The SAVS presents a 3.75-hour CME accredited Postgraduate Course, TEVAR, addresses Thoracic Endovascular Aorta Repair. This half-day program taps the expertise of SAVS membership. Each brief TEVAR presentation will be followed by discussion open to all registrants.
TEVAR topics will include pre-op imaging, graft sizing and case strategy. Trouble shooting for TEVAR cases including difficult access, hostile anatomy and acute complications will be delineated. TEVAR outcomes including world data, US trials and multi-center experiences will be discussed. Also, fenestrated grafts, branched grafts and vessel relocation techniques will also be reviewed.
The design of this course enlists the expertise of the participants in a "think-tank" environment where TEVAR skills including tips and tricks, as well as lessons learned can be shared.
