The 2nd international round table Symposium in Örebro, Sweden, 7-9th June 2018, is nearly upon us! Don’t miss out on exciting discussions and debates with experts from around the world about developments within Endovascular and Hybrid surgical methods for Trauma, Resuscitation and Bleeding Management. Register now!

The theme of this symposium is the hybrid use of endovascular and open surgical methods for hemorrhage control, Endovascular Resuscitation. The use of REBOA in both trauma and non-trauma cases, PPH, vascular injuries, complex trauma and iatrogenic and spontaneous bleeding will be discussed as well as exciting new clinical developments. The EVTM faculty has worked hard to build a modern up-to-date platform where participants can share and discuss exceptional scientific knowledge and experience, learn from others and debate exciting developments in bleeding control and resuscitation. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to meet experts in the field from many countries and specialities and establish new contacts and collaborations!


How will this differ from other meetings…?  Why should you come to Sweden in June…?

  • Open discussion and debate between clinically active experts, panelists and the audience after every presentation. A real open forum in a modern venue!
  • Exceptional scientific content and real world experience. Some work not yet published!
  • A multidisciplinary approach to all EVTM issues. The focus will be on team work between Vascular-, Trauma- and General surgeons, ICU, IR and pre-hospital personnel, all present together in one place!
  • More expert female colleagues presenting and debating!
  • Free copy of the JEVTM (scientific journal) May 2018 edition and Top stent manual!
  • Release of the new EVTM mobile application, available for free!

And much more!

preliminary program has been released and will be updated in line with ongoing developments.

Some of the issues that will be discussed and debated during the symposium (preliminary):

Early bleeding control interventions – Japan. Who? How? Updates.
Using endovascular (and hybrid) techniques in trauma. Evidence? Guidelines?
Using endovascular (and hybrid) techniques in non-trauma patents (PPH, spontaneous, iatrogenic). Evidence? Guidelines?
When to gain vascular femoral access in bleeders? Evidence?
Never do REBOA in chest injuries? True or myth?
How to decide on REBOA zone? Ultrasound/X-ray?
Clinical trials – Update from the ABOTrauma Registry
Clinical trials – The AORTA study (US)
Clinical trials – The DIRECT IABO study (JP)
Zone III REBOA for trauma. What does the data say?
REBOA as part of the EVTM concept in pelvic fractures. Packing? Embolization?
Complications with Zone III REBOA. What do we know?
Simultaneous embolization and REBOA. Feasible?
REBOA as a bridge to embolization. What can be done? How can the time be used?
Military EVTM experience. Data! US military update.

The paramedics role for transfer REBOA?
Pre-hospital REBOA. Update (UK group).
Indications for REBOA in PPH.
Embolization in PPH. When? How?
Update on aortic balloon occlusion in PPH – lessons learnt. Can we learn anything for use in other bleeders?

What can we learn about the ICU period in REBOA treated patients?  (USA/Sweden data)
Complications in the ABOTrauma Registry.
Antithrombotic treatment in the ICU after EVTM. What should you do? Evidence?
Effect of REBOA, pREBOA and iREBOA on anesthesia.
Cardiac arrest and REBOA. Any data?
New technologies for EVTM including imaging, balloons, endografts and embolization agents – an overview.
Sizing endografts for younger patients (Thorax, Abdomen, Iliac, Subclavian).
