A SURGICAL AF ABLATION COURSE on bovine hearts by Prof. Marko Turina

For only 30 scholars, by first come first served basis !

Register today!

This course  is supported by unrestricted educational grant of Medtronic Company


"ANASTOMOTIC SKILLS SIMULATION LAB" by Prof. Paul Sergeant(Past President, EACTS)

A REDUCED AIRSPACE ANASTOMOTIC DRY LAB, in collaboration with Ethicon

Don't miss this extraordinary training course fits for every Cardiac and Vascular Surgeon who likes to develop their skills!

Learning Objectives:
This three-hour low fidelity simulation session will guide the scholar towards anastomotic techniques for reduced airspace and unstable or beating targets.

At the end of the session the scholar will be invited to participate in a "cloud" distant technical learning continium and will receive the Arroyo simulator.

A training ARROYO simulator will be offered to each participant.

The First 60 participants who registered to the
9th International UCCVS Congress will be eligible for this course.

2 Anastomotic skills simulation labs (AM and PM) will take place at the
22nd of March
for max 30 people each (60 scholars in total).
