The biannual EVTM workshops

Thank you all for taking part in the last EVTM workshop. Interested to join the next workshop? please send email to chatarina.lindahl@regionorebrolan.se   The dates are not set yet.

Welcome Chatarina Lindahl as the dedicated administrator of the EVTM program at Örebro Univeristy Hospital.

The biannual EVTM Workshops are a great opportunity to learn about the latest developments, share and practice hands on techniques on live tissue. We hope to have the next workshop on Mars 2018. This is highely dependent on the work load as we are all clinicians.


The ABOTrauma REgistry captures data on the usage of REBOA in trauma. We have currentely around 130 patients and collecting more data that wil be published (1st publication done recetely, with 2 years results). Discussed, debated on the workshops!

To Join the ABOTrauma Registry, please e-mail us!


NEW for the comming workshops:

Dedicated stations for highely trained endovascular physicians (advanced methods for endo bleeding control, advanced REBOA, liquid embolisation Onyx, bail-out methods and more)

More on Endovascular Resucucitaion as this area is expanding.

More experienced REBOA and endo.rescuc people for sharing…

Program for the EVTM Workshop 7-8 september 2017 (pdf)

The participants are usually very experience physicians with trauma interest (trauma, general, vascular, interventional radiology and ICU), but the workshop is individually tailored to the level of the participants. It is built to create discussions and cooperation for mutual learning.

We will spend some time on basic Technics, substantial time on REBOA and basic embolization and extra time on advanced and super advanced methods for hybrid bleeding control. A new term is rising and will be discussed and used in the workshop- ENDOVASCULAR RESUCITAION.

Some new issues as partial REBOA or “Permissive REBOA” will be practiced on live tissue with on–line monitoring, bleeding control in-vivo and more. We will also train intermitted REBOA (iREBOA) and Total REBOA (tREBOA) as well as consider pre-hospital REBOA issues and ICU aspects. We have some new data to present on CPR REBOA and military REBOA cases.

The workshops is constructed to fit individual level and interest, from basic to super advanced methods. At the end of the workshop, participants are expected to have enough basic training in REBOA and other EVTM techniques to take them into trauma practice, with the limitations of country/region etc. REBOA is now performed in several centers in the world after basic training in this workshop.

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

EVTM WORKSHOPS – biannually since 2014

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


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