“No ego, just good science and cooperation”

In February of 2017 more than 350 medical professionals representing diverse disciplines in surgery, trauma, anesthesia, cardiology, obstetrics, radiology, emergency medicine and critical care from around the world met in Ӧrebro Sweden at the inaugural Endovascular Resuscitation and Trauma Management (EVTM) symposium. The event was the first of its kind, bringing together an array of dedicated providers with experience in caring for severely injured, ill or bleeding patients. Through presentations, panel discussions and moderator-led debates, attendees advanced their understanding of the capacity for catheter-based, endovascular approaches and technologies (present and future) to improve the survival and recovery of these challenging patients.

One year later, in February 2018, the organization hosted its second meeting in Houston, Texas. That meeting harnessed the palpable enthusiasm of spirited participants from the USA, Canada, Central and South America. The size, diversity and international composition of EVTM and the passionate nature of the discussions surpassed the projections of the event organizers. EVTM returned to Sweden in June 2018 where over 300 medical professionals from an array of disciplines have tapped into an underappreciated momentum for using endovascular techniques for vessel injury, hemorrhage control and resuscitation. Beyond its clinical, scientific and new technologies content, growing interest in endovascular approaches for broader applications in critical care – is apparent and growing. EVTM provides a common, cross-disciplinary forum to bring many disciplines together, the science to formulate clinical guidelines regarding the contemporary management of bleeding trauma patients using innovative endovascular technologies.

 

Once again in October 2018, EVTM went on the road for a one day symposium in Tel Aviv, Israel. Over 150 providers, hosted by Simone Fajer, representing nearly all of the largest Israeli teaching centers presented debates and round table discussions on the multidisciplinary approaches for provider training, vascular access technique and bleeding management strategies that dominated the scientific program. Prehospital and Military personnel were well represented in the meeting and contributed to novel ideas for extending the concepts of prolonged field care in austere environments. In response to the continued world-wide interest, in June 2019 Viktor Reva hosted a symposium in Saint Petersburg Russia with 400 attendees extending mutual exchanges and shared visions into Eastern Europe.

The 2nd Pan American EVTM Symposium in Denver, Colorado, was equally successful. Dr Charles Fox (Vascular) and Dr Ernest Moore (Trauma) managed to further increase the interest for EVTM in USA, Canada, Central and South America with 150 participants debating, discussing and together continued the movement. This was also a first for the very appriciated Resident/Fellow session dedicated to young EVTM enthusiasts, to which a record number of abstracts was submitted, proving that EVTM is not just multidiciplinary but also a multiaged concept. The EVTM Society had a meeting to identify new officers for the coming year and sincerely thanked those who led this group in the past 18 months for their outstanding efforts.

We now introduce the latest (seventh) issue of the Journal of Endovascular Resuscitation and Trauma Management (JEVTM), commissioned as platform on which to continue the global discussion. The JEVTM aims to capture and maintain the cross-disciplinary momentum across a wide range of specialties including trauma surgery, cardiology, obstetrics, critical care, radiology, anesthesia and emergency medicine. The journal features novel interventions, endovascular solutions, and newly developing automated technologies for bleeding control. This will serve as both an electronic and print peer-reviewed forum by which to disseminate knowledge from clinical experiences and structured research.

The 2019 Pan-American EVTM Symposium was granted 12 European CME credits (ECMEC®s) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®). (Accreditation letter). Certificate will be given on request.
