HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE COMPETITION
The format will be a 1-hour competition on sizing and planning a challenging chronic aorto iliac occlusion.
Competitors start planning from an anonymized CTA, available after the registration along with a standard template, the possible treatment of a chronic aorto iliac occlusion.
They hypothesise materials, steps, accesses, bailout-strategies, medical treatment, follow-up strategy; a deep discussion is enhanced by panelists as well as by the audience onsite during the Congress Multi-Level CTO COURSE Endovascular May 6th 2023 - Brussels, BELGIUM.
The competitors will be selected - by Prof. Torsello and Dr. Chisci, on the basis of 5 different features:
originality (0-10 points),
choice of materials (0-10 points)
procedural steps (0-10 points),
planning skills (0-10 points),
global vision of the disease (0-10 points)
The 3 best scored competitors will be granted to participate directly at the final event in Brussels with a 7-minutes presentation of their case resolution.
The winner will be voted by the audience at the Congress.
The award will be a 4 weeks-travel grant to the European Center chosen by the winner.
This innovative educational project is of great interest for the young vascular community and an opportunity for a young surgeon to travel to one major European vascular center.
