Endoscopic Radial Artery Harvesting training day 2019

Endoscopic Radial Artery Harvesting training day 2019

Become an ERAH expert

Oxford, England May 10, 2019

A recent publication in the New English Journal of Medicine showed the use of radial-artery grafts for CABG resulted in a lower rate of adverse cardiac events and a higher rate of patency at 5 years of follow-up, when compared with the use of saphenous-vein grafts [1]. This has resulted in an increase in radial artery harvesting, and an update to clinical guidelines.

This one day training provides you with the opportunity to learn how to best utilize this recent change in an interactive friendly environment. The training is free of charge and includes lunch.

Presenters

Course chairman
Professor David P Taggart

If there ever was a Mr CABG, it would probably be Prof. Taggart. What he doesn't know about the research on EVH and ERAH might not be worth knowing.

Lead SCP
Jasmina Djordjevic

Jasmina is an early adopter of EVH and ERAH. She is also raising the quality of the SCP work across UK and supports the banding of SCP's through education and other means.

Practice development SCP
Michael J Turton

Michael is a seasoned EVH and ERAH user. His steady hands is an inspiration as well as a reference point for the future development of your radial artery harvesting skills.
