The 2nd EVTM Symposium is now over, but what a great event it was! The EVTM team would like to thank everyone who came and got involved! Amazing talks, discussions and debates took place, all helping to continue the process of breaking boundaries and evolving endovascular resuscitation and the EVTM concept. We would also like to thank our sponsors, our dedicated medical students and Örebro University Hospital, who generously contributed to making this ground-breaking symposium possible.
There were almost 300 participants at this years event, with more following the live coverage online from all around the world. If you were not fortunate enough to be present or have the possibility to watch the live coverage, all sessions are now available here, as well as participant comments and expert interviews on our YouTube channel.
During this event, the first EVTM Society meeting took place to discuss how best to continue promoting optimal treatment and new methods for bleeding control in trauma and non-trauma patients, and state-of-the-art endovascular resuscitation. More information on what was discussed will be coming shortly. The EVTM Society is continuously open to those who want to join, contribute and be a part of this ongoing venture.
In addition, the EVTM App, including the new REBOA Timer, was released for Android users, with an iPhone version coming very soon. An alternative platform for communicating upcoming events, read JEVTM articles and Top Stent, listen to Podcasts, Tips & Tricks, Photos & Videos and discuss EVTM related issues with others through Open Forum.
Furthermore, several upcoming events are already planned. There will be an EVTM/REBOA Workshop at the 91st Chilean and International Surgery Congress, scheduled for November 7th-10th in Puerto Varas, Chile. And, as usual, an EVTM Workshop will take place in Örebro, Sweden, between 29th-30th November. In addition, several other projects are already underway and more information will come soon.
EVTM has a very exciting future ahead with the continued goal to share information on advanced methods for bleeding control and endovascular resuscitation, exchange of data, professional cooperation and education.
