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 . 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.
Date: May 10, 2019
City: Oxford, England
Venue: St Hughs College, Morden Hall
Set yourself up for continuous learning
The workshop includes:
- why radial artery harvesting
- endoscopic vs open radial harvesting
- instructions for every step of the procedure
- bedside practice
- training programme and continued development
Is this workshop for you?
Everyone is welcome to this workshop. It will help you with a better understanding of ERAH, the outstanding benefits and requirements. To fully appreciate the information and to move forward after the workshop it is preferable to be trained in:
- Open Radial Artery Harvesting
- Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting
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.
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.

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.
