Two World Leading Symposia Coming Up



The second International round table Symposium on Trauma, resucitation and Bleeding Management with Endovascular and Hybrid Surgical Methods, will take place in Örebro, Sweden: 7-9th June 2018. 

Its about endovascular and open methods for hemmorage control (ENDOVASCULAR RESUSCITATION), REBOA, vascular injuries, complexed trauma, iatrogenic and spontaneous bleeding as well as PPH. REBOA for non-trauma and other endo methods… Exciting developments that are in clinical use!

Don’t miss the chance to be a part of this paradigm shift!

The preliminary program will be out next month and will change according to the developments in the field. Expect up-to-date reports on EVTM, REBOA data and much more…

Some issues to be discussed and debated (preliminary):

Early bleeding control interventions- Japan. Who? How? Updates –
Using endo (and hybrid) techniques in trauma- Evidance? Guidlines?
Using endo techniques in non-trauma (PPH, spontaneous, iatrogenic)- Evidance? Guidlines?
When to gain a vascular femoral access in bleeders? Any evidence? –
Never do REBOA in the chest injuries? True or myth? –
How to descide on REBOA zone? Ultrasound/X-ray? –
Clinical trials- The ABOTrauma registry update –

Information before EVTM17:
-More than 350 medical professions and 24 companies will be there.

-Abstract submission closed. Very exciting data is comming in and some will be presented in oral presenation.

-First report on the initial pre-hospital REBOA experience in military settings  (USA)

-First REBOA data from Israel, South Africa, Italy and more will be presented.

-The faculty have confirmed – the majority of groups using REBOA will be represented!

-Worldwide experts  practicing and developing REBOA as well as other EVTM methods will share their knowledge, experiences and update on current status.

-Many experienced surgeons, IR, vascular surgeons and ICU people will be there. It not only REBOA, but using new techniques for bleeding control.

-It’s a new concept: short presentations and up-to-dates as well as time for discussions and debates. A good oppurtunity to be active in these discussions as this will be an open forum. Come an join an active forum for discussions!

Some words on EVTM:

As endovascular methods develop, they can be incorporated into initial trauma care upon patients arrival. This includes adopting a multidisciplinary team approach, early femoral vascular access (AABCDE), Aortic Balloon Occlusion (ABO or REBOA), surgery on a sliding/angiography table, angiography, embolization, stent grafts and much more. We can use both open surgery and endo methods (hybrid) to control massive bleeding by having an EVTM approach at time of patients arrival or even in the field or battlefield (pre-hospital). Some of these methods have been in use for decades while some have been developed over the last 10 years. However, not all are used in primary trauma or bleeding management but techniques are under development. EVTM can also be used in other bleeders  as PPH, GI, iatrogenic.

We believe that the EVTM concept is here to stay and should be applied in all severe trauma cases, even in the pre-hospital environment and battlefield. EVTM can be used in both developed and less developed countries, with an old C-arm or in a modern hybrid suite.

There are also some brand new developments in EVTM regarding REBOA including partial REBOA (pREBOA) vs total REBOA (tREBOA), intermitted REBOA (iREBOA), field REBOA (fREBOA), deflated REBOA (dREBOA) or transfer REBOA – Very exciting times!

-In cooperation with Tokai (Rescue Balloon), Cook Medical, GORE, Philips, Prytime (ER-REBOA), 3Dimprigo, BBraun, Toshiba, Bolton and other companies, Örebro regional council, Örebro research council, Örebro University Hospital. Finnish trauma Society, Italian trauma society, DIRECT (Japan), Russia surgical and vascular societies, Seldinger society, Swedish society of aneasthesia and intensive care, Brazilian vascular and surgical societies, Netherlands emergency doctor’s association. Swedish Seldiner society (IR), South Africa trauma association and others are partners in this venture!

-The EVTM symposium received EU accreditation (CME point system)- EACCME

  • “Top Stent Manual” to be launched in the symposium and will be distributed free of charge to all participants. It’s being printed now!
  • Launch of the JEVTM (the Journal) and EVTM society planned!
  • New medical products will be launched (Rescue Balloon, ER REBOA and others)
  • Stent-grafts, embolization agents and other products
