PNEC Simulation Summit for Vascular Trainees

The PNEC Simulation Summit for Vascular Trainees offers the opportunity of focused training and certification in the use of endovascular techniques for the management of aortic dissection and rAAA. The Summit provides senior trainees a forum to learn advanced endovascular techniques for the management of aortic dissection and ruptured AAA (rAAA). It also allows the senior cardiovascular trainees the opportunity to attend PNEC, the premier endovascular meeting in the Pacific Northwest. The PNEC Simulation Summit for Vascular Trainees will be held at the Conference Convention Center at Convention Place on Thursday, June 14, 2018, the day prior to PNEC.

  • PGY-5 Integrated Vascular Resident

 

Program Goals

  • Present the cardiovascular trainees (vascular fellow, CT fellow, PGY-5 and PGY-4 integrated vascular residents) with a forum in which to learn advanced endovascular techniques for the management of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), aortic dissection, traumatic aortic transection and ruptured AAA (rAAA) from world-class experts in the field.
  • Give the cardiovascular trainees the opportunity to attend PNEC, the premier endovascular meeting in the Pacific Northwest.
  • Provide cardiovascular trainees with an opportunity to have focused training in the use of endovascular techniques for the management of PAD, aortic dissection, traumatic aortic transection and rAAA using the most advanced endovascular simulators available.

 

Program Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, the learner should be able to:

  • Identify the indications for intervention in both acute and chronic type B aortic dissection.
  • Use thoracic endovascular grafts to manage and treat both acute and chronic type B dissection.
  • Plan and use thoracic endografts to manage blunt thoracic aortic transection.
  • Use abdominal endovascular grafts for the management of ruptured AAA.
  • Use intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) to manage aortic dissection and traumatic aortic transection.
  • Understand both open and endovascular treatment options for the management of PAD and critical limb ischemia (CLI) in the femoropopliteal segment.
  • Describe techniques for treatment of CTO lesions including the use of atherectomy, laser and reentry devices.
  • Describe current data regarding the use of drug-coated balloon (DCB).
  • Identify and describe imaging modalities used in the management of CLI.
