ENDORSED: TREAT Sympoium: TransRadial Endovascular Advanced Therapies

When:  Jun 1, 2018 from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM (ET)

The purpose of this CME activity is to educate healthcare providers who care for patients with vascular lesions, highlighting important developments in the management and treatment of these patients using a transradial arterial access approach. Participants will understand, and when appropriate, integrate these developments into their clinical practices.

The TREAT symposium will offer didactic lectures, live cases, hands-on workshops and case management discussions with a panel of expert faculty. Concepts regarding patient selection, best technical approaches, potential pitfalls and equipment selection will be reviewed

 

Educational Objectives:

  • Compare and contrast equipment and procedural techniques for performing transradial vs. transfemoral endovascular therapies.
  • Demonstrate the role of transradial access for complex embolotherapy and review the techniques necessary for successful therapy.
  • Review the role of transradial access for visceral interventions.
  • Recognize the challenges and pitfalls associated with transradial interventions.
