Embolisation is not only an established technique in the IR’s repertoire – this versatile therapy is developing at an exciting rate and embracing many new clinical applications. Embolotherapy has long since played a vital role in the treatment of GI bleeding and AVMs, and new techniques are allowing interventionalists to branch out even further, with novel treatments for prostate hyperplasia, obesity and haemorrhoids currently being investigated.
The GEST Europe programme for 2017 has been meticulously designed, and it certainly reflects this growth and versatility, with sessions planned on coils and plugs, trauma management, vascular and lymphatic malformations, a focus on the chest area, fibroid treatment, liver embolotherapies, as well as the latest embolics and much more!
Alongside plenary and parallel sessions, there will also be hands-on workshops on coils and plugs, liquid embolics, particles and gelfoam, plus a range of clinical case-based discussions.
Since its official creation, the biennial GEST Europe meeting has positioned itself as one of the leading embolotherapy congresses. In 2015, over a thousand participants from around the world joined us in the beautiful Spanish city of Seville for another dynamic meeting.
GEST Europe 2017 will take place in Florence, Italy from May 31 – June 3, and is certain to be another great opportunity to discover the latest advances in embolotherapy.
We look forward to seeing you there!
