Preliminary program for the November 2018 EVTM workshop available!

The EVTM Workshop in Örebro, Sweden, is the only EVTM Workshop, but it is developing in other countries as well. It is not a course but rather a workshop in order to allow both organizers and attendees to mutually exchange knowledge, experience and ideas to stimulate multidisciplinary discussions and further development.

A combination of seminars, discussions and hands-on training on live tissue and models are used, aimed at teaching endovascular resuscitation through endovascular access skills, REBOA,  embolization, and other methods for hybrid bleeding control. Both basic and advanced methods are practiced, based on personal experience. The workshop offers a unique oppurtunity to perform procedures not performed in any other courses or workshops, on live tissue. Practical training with what to do , what not to do are done on live tissue on models developed for this workshop and never seen before!

Attendees have been experienced physicians with trauma, bleeding and resuscitation interest (trauma, general and vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists and intensivists) seeking to develop or improve their understanding and skills as well as physicians with either limited or no previous endovascular training. Workshops are individually tailored to fit the level of the participants!

The use of REBOA is a main focus as a rapidly evolving procedure for gaining hemodynamic control in unstable exsanguinating patients. During the workshop, the participants are introduced to the use of REBOA and practice on live tissue with on-line monitoring in multiple scenarios. CPR REBOA, bleeding REBOA, total REBOA (tREBOA), partial REBOA (pREBOA), intermittent REBOA (iREBOA), pre-hospital REBOA, ICU aspects and much more!

The organizers, experts with extensive experience and frontline researchers within the field, aim to give the participants enough training to feel comfortable incorporating the taught techniques into their own trauma practice.

Specific workshops have been conducted for surgical residents as part of their surgical training as well as for helicopter, military and ambulance personnel focusing on introducing and implementing the EVTM concept in the pre-hospital environment.

To further establish the concept of EVTM, REBOA and endovascular resuscitation, the organizers also help to build and conduct similar workshops worldwide. Recently, the first Brazilian EVTM workshops were performed in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the first international courses in Brazil on aortic balloon occlusion using REBOA. EVTM partner workshops have been conducted in several places (Israel, Russia, Finland, Brasil mm and will be this year in Israel, Denmark, France and other countries. There is an increased coopeartion around EVTM and REBOA practice and Courses.

Want to build an EVTM program / REBOA program in your hospital? We can help you establish it! Contact us for more details. The EVTM workshops are non-profit and based on good-will for better care of hemodynamically unstable patients.

We would like to thank our friends from the industry for their generous support!

The next pre-hospital EVTM/REBOA workshop will be in February 2019. Details soon. For registration please contact us (emails above)


2018-03-26: First EVTM/REBOA Workshops in Brazil.
The first EVTM/REBOA workshops were performed in Brazil, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Great interest and attendance. More to come!



2018-01-13: The First Scandinavian pre-hospital REBOA workshop.
28 doctors, mainly anesthetists participated. Discussions and practical training in vascular access and REBOA as part of the EVTM concept. CPR REBOA, bleeding REBOA, pREBOA, iREBOA and much more. Many new ideas on implementation of EVTM in the pre-hospital environment. A great success!

“Implementing the EVTM concept in the pre-hospital civilian field”
A practical hands-on REBOA workshop on live tissue designed for helicopter and ambulance personal.

The ABOTrauma Registry

The ABOTrauma Registry captures data on the usage of REBOA in trauma. We have currently around 160 patients and are continuously collecting more data that will soon be published (1st publication done recently, with 2 year results). Discussed and debated during the workshops!

Responsibility declaration:
This unique platform brings state of the art trauma/bleeding control practice as known from daily practice and literature by top experts. We strictly follow the Swedish and European medical and governmental guidelines and laws. The EVTM faculty and the dept. of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery as well as dept. of Surgery at Örebro University Hospital takes no responsibility for the implementation of this knowledge, it is the sole responsibility of the participants.

We have conducted more than 60 workshops on endovascular techniques, trauma and surgical workshops in our facilities in the last decade, continuing the pioneering work of Dr. Larzon and the vascular team.

Thank you all who have made these workshops so great; the participants, the staff and our partners from the industry!
