The Second Part Course Curriculum (Cologne)

  1. Identify types and specifications of cath-lab components, rules to protect the patient and himself from hazards of radiation exposure, and correct sterilization.

  2. Proper general pre-intervention patient evaluation & patient selection, pre-intervention medication and common pitfalls and complications.

  3. Recognize all common tools needed for peripheral endovascular intervention in general.

  4. Recognize types of each tool, specific features of each one and its proposed benefit and possible hazard.

  5. Rules to use each tool, indication, contraindication, limitation and known trick for each.

  6. Identify specific tools to use in different locations and from different access sites and why.

  7. Identify the specific group of tools for specific situations as CTO, IPAD, intended catheter directed thrombolytic therapy, retrieval system tools and emergency kits.

  8. Recognize the pitfalls associated with various endovascular procedures and how to avoid them.

  9. Principles of how to plan endovascular approach and to select access site in management of different lesions on different sites.
