Three Cook Medical strategic business units—Interventional Radiology (IR), Peripheral Intervention (PI), and Aortic Intervention (AI)—have collaborated to provide innovative learning opportunities for some of the world’s leading interventional specialists at CIRSE 2016.
CIRSE (Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe), which will be held Sept. 10-14 in Barcelona, Spain, provides a forum for participants to learn about technological advances and new indications for image-guided therapies as well as exchange high-level scientific information in an international setting.
Cook will sponsor a Learning Centre next to the booth, with physician-led sessions touching on pertinent issues that include Venous Day (Sept. 10), Liver Day (Sept. 11), Arterial Day (Sept. 12), and Vista Day (Sept. 13). Vista is Cook Medical’s physician education and training program.
In addition to Learning Centre activities, PI is sponsoring two special events during the conference. The first event will highlight the one-year results for VIVO-EU, the world’s first prospective, nonrandomized multicenter clinical study assessing the effectiveness of a venous stent. The study’s primary investigator, Dr Gerry O’Sullivan from Galway, Ireland, will present the results from 17:30-18:30 on Sept. 10 in Room 114.
On Sept. 12, the Zilver® PTX® Symposium will be held from 11:30-12:30 in Auditorium 1. Presenters include Drs Michael Dake (Stanford, Calif., USA), Fabrizio Fanelli (Rome, Italy), Götz Richter (Stuttgart, Germany), Renu Virmani (Gaithersburg, Md., USA), Carlos Mena (New Haven, Conn., USA), and Konstantinos Katsanos (London, UK).
Physicians can also take advantage of a simulation station at the Cook booth that will enable them to practice their endovascular skills.
