The International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) is designed for interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, interventional neuroradiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, clinical cardiologists, clinical radiologists, neurologists, internists, nurses, and others involved in the treatment of cardiovascular disease.
After attending the International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) participants should be able to:
List evidence based medicine criteria that reflect the best techniques and devices to treat cardiovascular disease.
Explain the benefits of medical management and the use of multidisciplinary teams to improve patient outcomes of endovascular therapy and complex structural heart disease.
Illustrate optimal noninvasive diagnostic techniques to diagnose, plan treatment for, and follow cardiovascular disease.
Describe principles and techniques of venous intervention including DVT, filters, and dialysis procedures.
Distinguish the best methods to diagnose and manage patients with critical limb ischemia.
Differentiate advanced techniques and treatment for complex aneurysms.
Compare advanced techniques to treat complex cases of chronic total occlusions.
Contrast the simple and complex arterial access for the performance of diverse endovascular procedures.
Recognize when and how to apply new techniques to treat aortic dissection.
