Endovascular 101: Introduction to Cerebral Angiography & Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology

The Endo 101 course is designed to help the junior Endovascular fellow get a jump start on training. It covers radiation safety, angiographic anatomy, complication avoidance, groin access and closure, catheter hygiene, flush set up, navigation of the aortic arch, selective catheterization, and catheter or device exchanges over exchange wires using didactic and hands-on training. This will include flow models and 2 digital simulators on which participants may coil an aneurysm and deploy a carotid stent. The ideal participant is a resident or fellow who plans to start endovascular training and has little or no experience with angiography. Endo 101 is sponsored by the Endovascular Neurosurgery Research Group (ENRG) and held every year in Jackson Hole, Wyoming or Cincinnati, Ohio.
