Thanks to the tireless work of the CIRSE Scientific Programme Committee, CIRSE 2021 will again provide the world’s most comprehensive platform for IR research, innovation, and evidence-based clinical care centred around the following core themes:
- Arterial Intervention
- Venous Intervention
- Aortic Intervention (IDEAS)
- Interventional Oncology
- Non-Vascular Intervention
- IR Management
Back by popular demand, there will be another PAD Day exploring all aspects of peripheral arterial disease and its treatment. As part of this micro-track, the [email protected] session will provide a stage for the release of the latest evidence from PAD trials and studies.
Another focus at CIRSE 2021 will be paediatric interventions, with a case-based discussion on the do’s and don’ts for venous procedures in children, a focus session on complex paediatric abdominal interventions, and a fundamental course on optimising the IR suite for children, among others.
Within the oncology track, a focus session will examine how we can assess the quality of cancer care, and an expert panel will debate the various aspects of immuno-oncology in interventional oncology in a round-table discussion, along with many other IO offerings.
This year’s non-vascular sessions will include a hot topic symposium on all you need to know about lymphatic leaks, a fundamental course on urinary tract interventions and a clinical evaluation course on thyroid procedures.
Venous interventions will also be covered extensively, with an expert round-table on acute pulmonary embolism and a workshop on deep venous recanalisation, just to name a few.
The embolisation track will explore the frontiers of our current evidence, taking inventory of where we currently stand and where the field is headed.
Several IR management sessions will also look at the road ahead, scrutinising technological advances in robotics and AI. For those of you specialising or wishing to branch out into neuro-interventions, there will be a workshop on acute stroke management as well as a surely enlightening expert round-table on the logistical challenges in stroke patients.
Another highlight of CIRSE 2021 will be its five video learning sessions covering a variety of non-vascular, embolisation and oncology topics, among others.
IDEAS, the congress within a congress, will shine a light on all there is to know about aortic repair, offering a multidisciplinary approach with case discussions, expert round-tables and workshops.
We also very much look forward to the CIRSE meets South Korea and Russia sessions, as getting to know the daily practice in other countries always provides an enlightening learning experience.
As you can see, CIRSE 2021 will be packed full with interesting sessions, providing experience and evidence to continuously improve the efficacy and safety of IR treatments. At the same time, the programme will offer congress goers numerous opportunities to connect with each other and the renowned experts of our faculty through a custom-made interactive platform enabling maximum interaction.
