Aortic interventions

The CIRSE 2021 Summit will again feature IDEAS, the Interdisciplinary Endovascular Aortic Symposium. IDEAS is an integral platform for promoting aortic education and keeping an open dialogue between interventional radiology and vascular surgery, and the IDEAS programme committee has worked hard to ensure a comprehensive interdisciplinary meeting.

EVAR workshop

We spoke to Dr. Elika Kashef on the importance of the IDEAS programme, as well as on what participants can expect to take home from the EVAR Workshop.

A faculty of world-renowned experts will host focus sessions, expert round tables, and case-based discussions presenting the latest aortic technology and evidence. Stroke prevention and refining endovascular interventions for aortic arch pathology will be discussed in particular, and a new session called “Amazing aortic interventions” will show how complicated cases were solved through technology and creativity.

The IDEAS programme committee has risen to the occasion of converting the most comprehensive, interdisciplinary aortic meeting into an interactive online format, ensuring that aortic education and the dialogue between interventional radiology and surgery continued undisrupted.
