4.5 Hybrid-Operation: Rotation angiography using Artis Zee/Zeego for surgeons


Prof. M. Pech

Prof. Z. Halloul 

Maximum number of participants:
Duration: 1 or 2 days, second practical day can be booked additionally, practical section optionally using phantom or a large animal model 


Course objective: Modern angiographic equipment is increasingly gaining importance and enables the combination of up-to-date diagnostics with minimally invasive and endovascular treatment therapies in operation rooms. The angiographic equipment Artis Zee/Zeego (Siemens) introduced in this course is a central element in many hybrid operation rooms.
The objective of this course is how to implement the Artis Zee/Zeego in the most professional, effective way  for complex and demanding surgical approaches, such as the endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysm (EVAR), as well as image-guided laparoscopic interventions. Thanks to the intense, practical training by experienced radiologists using the most modern equipment and phantoms or large animal models, this course is an excellent preparation for implementing this most effective equipment in a real-life setting.


Major target group: Surgeons with access to such equipment or planning to implement such equipment. 
This course can be adapted to the individual needs of hospitals and practitioners.
