How to Save a Life: IR and Surgical Management of the Trauma Patient

Bay Lake, FL US
August 3, 2020 to August 5, 2020
Join us in Disney World for an exciting, new educational conference!
Led by experts in interventional radiology and trauma surgery, this multidisciplinary meeting will promote the efficient management of the trauma patient, and all major topics in the global treatment of the trauma patient will be presented by experts in the field. It will highlight the important partnership of interventional radiology and trauma surgery. In doing so, it will bring internationally-recognized leaders to present a multi-faceted approach to care for one of the most challenging types of patient to care for: the critically-ill acute trauma patient. Furthermore, most of the program will surround current endovascular and interventional techniques and state-of-the art equipment used to perform life-saving procedures by both interventional radiologists and trauma surgeons. Endovascular therapies of focus will include embolization, balloon occlusion, stent and stent-graft placement, as well as other downstream interventions.
