The EVTM Workshop in Örebro, Sweden, has been running for several years and now developing in other countries as well. The vascular team have performed more than 70 workshops on vascular/endovascular techniques and trauma. This workshop is based on a long experience of sharing and training. 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 sharing endovascular resuscitation knowledge 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 (part of the EVTM concept) 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.
There is an increased cooperation around EVTM and REBOA practice and courses. 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 also been conducted in Israel, Russia, Finland, Denmark and France.
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! Zihm imaging, Secma, BK-Ultrasound, GORE, STILLE, Tokai, REBOA Medical, Boston Scientific, Micro-intervention, Örebro University Hospital and the great people in the EVTM team. We also want to thank the instructors and participants for their time as well as effort in making the workshop a success.
The 2019 EVTM Workshop was granted 11 European CME credits (ECMEC®s) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®). (Accreditation letter). Certificate will be given on request.
Yet another great event with a team of multidisciplinary international attendees. More focus on vascular access and eCPR with ECMO. Stent grafts, embolizations and great discussions!
REBOA nordic workshop 26/4
Another very successful closed REBOA workshop was held in Örebro, Sweden.
Over 30 doctors from multiple specialities, from all around the world attended the 2018 November Workshop. Yet again a great event where EVTM was discussed and practiced. This was the first workshop where eCPR using ECMO was performed.
2018.11.07: First EVTM/REBOA Workshop in Paris, France.
“Cours Appliqué D’EndoClampage Aortique en Mission EXtérieure”. REBOA Workshop for the French Military Health Service in Paris, France. The theory on vascular access, basic and advanced techniques regarding the use of REBOA and indications for its use were discussed and later practiced during the practical workshop on both live tissue and models. Thank you all for great workshop! Very exciting as we also trained some advanced bleeding control maneuvers.
2018.09.14: First EVTM/REBOA Workshop in Denmark.
A very successful EVTM/REBOA workshop was held in Århus, Denmark. The use of REBOA as well as the ABOTrauma Registry were discussed. Advanced use of REBOA was later practiced on live tissue demonstrating the hemodynamic aspects and consequences.
2018.01.13: The First Scandinavian pre-hospital REBOA workshop.
28 doctors, mainly anesthetists, participated in the 1st Nordic Pre-Hospital REBOA Workshop. Discussions and practical training in vascular access and REBOA on live tissue as part of the EVTM concept, designed for helicopter and ambulance use. CPR REBOA, bleeding REBOA, pREBOA, iREBOA and much more. Many new ideas on implementation of EVTM in the pre-hospital environment. A great success!
The ABOTrauma Registry
The ABOTrauma Registry captures data on the usage of REBOA in trauma. We have currently around 211 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!
To join the ABOTrauma Registry, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
