Dear Colleagues,
CIRSE is proud of its status as a European and global IR society,
with members coming from all 5 continents. CIRSE’s involvement in many IR projects around the world lays a firm foundation for a strong and dynamic annual meeting. In staging
CIRSE 2013, our intention is to further globalise both faculty
and audience, helping to reaffirm our meeting’s position as a
major platform for Interventional Radiology on a global scale.
CIRSE 2012 proved another great success, and the Scientific
Programme Committee is hard at work to make sure CIRSE 2013
lives up to this standard. Feedback and evaluation forms from
the meeting in Lisbon have been analysed and used to refine
the scientific and educational menu we will be offering
in Barcelona.
With this Second Announcement, we cordially invite you to
make yourself familiar with the educational and scientific programme of CIRSE 2013. You will find new, cutting-edge topics
have been added and more established sessions have been
improved based on your feedback. We hope it meets
your expectations!
Programme highlights include:
Evidence Forums – new sessions devoted to evidence-based
medicine. Forum topics will include the management of SFA
and BTK peripheral vascular disease, as well as HCC and
colorectal metastases.
Hot Topic Symposia – dynamic sessions on two contemporary
topics – interventional oncology in lung cancer and IR stroke
management.
Controversy Sessions – lively debates covering the management of aortic disease, endoleaks, peripheral vascular
interventions and portal hypertension.
Hands-on Workshops – emphasis will, once again, be placed
on the ever-popular Hands-on Workshops and a new session
dedicated to renal denervation will be introduced.
Last year’s congress saw the introduction of two major new
features, the CIRSE digital App and the live stream from the
main auditorium. The App proved a useful tool for congress
attendees and was downloaded over 2,000 times, and over
500 unique users tuned into the live stream. Due to their clear
popularity, both the CIRSE App and the live stream will also
feature at CIRSE 2013.
Abstract submissions have remained high in recent years. For
CIRSE 2013, we have received 1,360 abstracts: an all-time high
and an increase of 20% compared to 2012.
The CIRSE Annual Meeting is now the largest IR congress in
the world, drawing an attendance of over 6,000 delegates
annually. Finding a congress centre that can accommodate
this large number of attendees can, therefore, be a challenge.
Fortunately, the Barcelona International Convention Centre
fulfils all of our space criteria and we are delighted to have
secured it for our congress. Barcelona is also a city that needs
no introduction, providing the ideal infrastructure for large
congresses as well as many other services catering to visitors.
With all this in mind, we cordially invite you to join us for the
28th Annual CIRSE Congress, which will take place in the
cosmopolitan and inspirational city of Barcelona, Spain
from 14-18 September, 2013.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Amazing Interventions – a new and exciting session featuring
presentations on some of IRs most unusual cases by leading
figures in the field.

The Award of Excellence and
Innovation in IR
Innovative Spirit
On the occasion of CIRSE 2012, the R.W. Guenther Foundation honoured two ex­­­cellent interventionists
for their innovative work and dedication in establishing a new ground-breaking technique. Initially,
subintimal angioplasty was met with strong criticism and resistance for many years, but today it is
well accepted and has allowed many limbs to be saved from amputation.
Development
Many dedicated physicians have shown this kind of perseverance, hard work and conviction, which
has helped the relatively young medical field of IR to develop into the fully recognised subspecialty
it is today. Without the continuous development and refinement of new devices and techniques by
resourceful interventional radiologists, the ever-expanding range of treatments offered by our
specialty would not have been possible.
Recognition
Innumerable patients are grateful for the wide range of minimally invasive alternatives to open
surgery from which they can now benefit. Furthermore, CIRSE also wishes to honour your dedication
and excellence in IR and present your innovation to the IR community during the opening ceremony
of CIRSE 2013.
Recipients of this distinction will not only be awarded with a certificate of merit
for their contributions to the field, but also a cash prize of € 5,000.
How to apply
Send us your groundbreaking research results, details of a novel technique you developed, or
the cutting-edge equipment you have just patented. Our board of reviewers welcomes all your
innovations and looks forward to the advances they may bring to IR.
R. W. Günther Foundation
We warmly thank the R.W. Günther Foundation for kindly sponsoring the award. The Foundation is

Distinguished Fellow
Peter R. Taylor
Peter Taylor was born in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, in
the north of England. He was a chorister at Durham Cathedral
and continued his schooling at Canterbury where he studied
the piano under Ronald Smith. He was awarded a performers
diploma as an Associate of the Royal College of Music. He studied medicine at Emmanuel College, Cambridge (where he was
also a choral exhibitioner) and at St. Thomas’ Hospital, London.
Peter trained as a vascular surgeon at St. Mary’s Hospital in
Paddington under Averil Mansfield, John Wolfe and Andrew
Nicolaides and was appointed to Guy’s and Lewisham Hospitals
in 1991 and subsequently to Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in
1997. In the early 1990’s Andy Adam was appointed Professor
of Interventional Radiology at Guy’s Hospital and he encouraged Peter’s close collaboration with John Reidy. This fruitful
relationship introduced aortic endovascular procedures into
the clinical repertoire locally. Notable collaborations with early
endovascular pioneers included Claude Miahle, Fred Keller and
Julio Palmaz which placed Guy’s at the forefront of aortic
endovascular intervention in the UK.
Grants from the Charitable Foundation of Guy’s and St Thomas’
Hospital allowed the building of dedicated hybrid endovascular interventional suites. Early work showed the effectiveness
of endovascular thoracic intervention in preventing spinal cord
ischaemia compared to open surgery.
Peter’s main interest continues to be in carotid and aortic intervention, particularly the endovascular treatment of aortic
dissection. He took part in major randomised trials such as the
UK Small Aneurysm Trial, the EVAR trials, the Asymptomatic
Carotid Surgery Trial and the General Anaesthetic versus Local
Anaesthetic trial for carotid endarterectomy. Recent work in­
cludes the investigation of patients with aortic dissection by
dynamic magnetic resonance imaging.
Peter has written many peer reviewed papers and book chapters. He has given numerous lectures at national and international meetings and is in demand as a key opinion leader in
vascular intervention. He is co-chairman of the international
Charing Cross Meeting held annually in London and is a regular speaker at the Veith Symposium in New York. Together with
John Reidy he organises the Guy’s Thoracic Masterclass which
is an international meeting concentrating on cutting edge
endovascular thoracic intervention. He is also a referee for
nine major vascular journals.
Peter was awarded the James IV Travelling Scholarship in 1999
and visited Professor Safi at the Memorial Hermann Hospital in
Houston, Professor Glovitski at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester,
Minnesota, and Professors Jim May, John Harris and Geoff White
in Sydney, Australia. He has been a visiting professor to the
Houston Methodist Hospital and Baylor Medical School with
Professor Alan Lumsden, the University of Pittsburgh Medical
Centre with Professor Michel Makaroun and the Royal Prince
Alfred Hospital in Sydney with Professor John Harris. Peter was
president of the Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland
in 2008-9. He became Clinical Professor of Vascular Surgery at
King’s College London in 2010 and was made an honorary
fellow of the British Society of Interventional Radiologists in
2010.
Peter lives with his wife Kok-tee, a retired radiologist, whom
he met when they were both medical students in Cambridge.
They have a mutual interest in the piano and classical music,
regularly attending concerts and opera. They enjoy museums,
art galleries and dining in fine restaurants in London and
around the world.

Distinguished Fellow
Bien Soo Tan
Tan Bien Soo was born and raised in the island state of
Singapore. He received his education at the Anglo-Chinese
School, his father’s alma mater. Bien Soo then enrolled in medical school at the National University of Singapore, graduating
in 1985. He counts meeting and successfully courting his wife,
Soo See, a fellow classmate, as his greatest achievement in
medical school. Both of them then pursued postgraduate
training in diagnostic radiology in Singapore, obtaining the
Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists. When they
married in 1989, they had visions of travelling the world
together, attending radiological conferences. This did not
quite materialise. Bien Soo pursued a career in Interventional
Radiology while his wife, being the more sensible and capable
half, developed her interests in ultrasound and breast imaging,
in addition to caring for the couple’s children.
Bien Soo’s initial training in Interventional Radiology was in the
Department of Diagnostic Radiology at the Singapore General
Hospital (SGH), under the tutelage of Dr. Austin Htoo. He then
had the privilege of pursuing a fellowship at Guy’s Hospital in
London, where he trained under Prof. Andy Adam and Dr. John
Reidy. He returned home in 1995, and soon after was appointed Director of Vascular and Interventional Radiology in SGH.
His tenure witnessed rapid expansion of the Interventional
Radiology services in SGH, establishing the centre as the
largest in South East Asia.
Having greatly benefited from his training at Guy’s Hospital,
Bien Soo established a clinical fellowship in Interventional
Radiology at SGH, with the objective of equipping radiologists
in the region with basic and advanced skills in Interventional
Radiology. This ‘hands-on’ fellowship programme has since
flourished and currently 4-6 fellows from across Asia and
beyond are trained annually at SGH.
Bien Soo was the inaugural Chairman of the Cardiovascular and
Interventional Radiology Section of the Singapore Radiological
Society from 2000 to 2002. Having trained in Europe, he has
been a corresponding member of CIRSE since 1996. He was
conferred CIRSE fellowship in the year 2000. He is also a corresponding fellow of SIR. Bien Soo has lectured widely on
Interventional Radiology in the Asia Pacific region, as well as at
the annual CIRSE and SIR meetings. In 2011, he joined the team
of editors at CVIR. He is currently the President-Elect of the Asia
Pacific Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology
and the organising chairman of the Asia Pacific Conference of
Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology 2014, which will
be held in Singapore. Bien Soo was appointed Head of the
Department of Diagnostic Radiology in SGH in 2002, a post he
took over from one of his mentors, Dr. Tan Kim Ping, and which
he held until 2010. He was also the President of the Singapore
College of Radiologists from 2009 to 2011.
Bien Soo’s passion for teaching extends beyond Interventional
Radiology. He is also deeply involved in undergraduate and post­
graduate training for diagnostic radiology. He has chaired the
national committee for postgraduate diagnostic radiology train­­­
ing in Singapore since 2008. In addition, he is an Associate Pro­­
fessor in both medical schools in Singapore (the Yong Loo Lin
School of Medicine and the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School).
Bien Soo’s involvement in research is based on his conviction
that interventional radiologists should play a critical role in
shaping the evidence in the field of minimally invasive therapy.
The team at the Interventional Radiology Centre at SGH has
conducted several investigator-led randomised controlled
trials, studying various aspects of haemodialysis interventions
and critical limb ischaemia therapy.
Beyond the arena of radiology, he has held various appointments
in the Singapore Armed Forces, by virtue of the compul­sory na­tional service programme in Singapore. He was the Commanding
Officer of a medical support battalion from 1999 to 2003, an out­­
standing unit that won the Best Combat Service Support Batta­
lion Award for a record-breaking nine years from 1996 to 2004.
Bien Soo and Soo See are the proud parents of four wacky child­
ren, Sarah, Deborah, Joanna and Yuancheng, and they have an
even wackier dog called Cleo. They treasure family time toge­
ther and love travelling when the opportunity arises. Since his
knees gave way last year, Bien Soo has had to give up running,
and he now enjoys a good swim. He has been a long-suffering
fan of Manchester City Football Club since 1969, and views the
club’s new found wealth and success with some suspicion.
He also enjoys discovering new food haunts on the island of
Singapore, where eating is a favourite past-time, and aspires to
start a food blog when he retires.

Gold Medallist
José I. Bilbao
José Ignacio “Nacho” Bilbao was born in 1956 in Bilbao and grew
up in the Cantabria region. He studied medicine at the Univer­
si­t y of Navarra (1973-1979) where he received his doctorate
cum laude in 1988. Following his specialisation in ra­­diology at
the Uni­versity Clinic of Navarra (CUN), he worked in the hospi­
tal’s Ra­­dio­logy Department. In 1991, José Ignacio Bilbao was
made Asso­ciate Professor of Radiology and Physical Medi­cine
at the University of Navarra, and became a Professor in 2007.
From 1998 until 2004, Prof. Bilbao directed the Radiology
Department of the CUN.
From the beginning of his studies, Prof. Bilbao showed great
interest in the surgical specialties. During a 1982 fellowship at
the MD Anderson in Houston, Texas, under the tutorship of
Dr. Sydney Wallace and Dr. Luis Alonso de Santos, Prof. Bilbao
discovered the great therapeutic potential of angiographic
pro­­cedures, needles and drainages. With the valuable help of
other specialists of the CUN and after various visits to hospitals
across Spain with Dr. Ricardo Tobio and Dr. Manuel Maynar,
among others, Prof. Bilbao co-established the CUN’s Inter­
ventional Radiology Department, which he has headed
ever since.
In 1984, the department started using intra-arterial chemothe­
rapy in the treatment of bone tumours and hepatic tumours,
as well as breast and lung neoplasms. After visiting the Univer­
sities of Chiva (Dr. Kunio Okuda) and Nara (Dr. Hideo Uchida)
with his colleagues, Prof. Bilbao started using lipiodol and thus
chemoembolization for the treatment of hepatocellular
carcinomas in 1986. Upon meeting Dr. Francis Joffre and
Dr. Hervé Rousseau in 1989, Prof. Bilbao began collaborating
with the renowned experts on various subjects, including TIPS.
After carrying out a comprehensive experimental study, the
team started performing exclusive transjugular access, echographic guidance of portal puncture and the use of autoexpandable endoprostheses. Prof. Bilbao later worked with Joffre
and Rousseau on a study showing the superiority of covered
vs. non-covered prostheses in terms of permeability. During
that time, the team also collaborated with Drs Chigogidze and
Avaliani from the Bakuolev Institute in Moscow on experimental models for extrahepatic porto-cava connections by means
of magnets and specific metal prostheses. In co-operation with
the Department of Animal Histology of the Veterinarian Faculty
of the University of Zaragoza, Prof. Bilbao started studying the
“in vivo” characteristics of various embolizing agents in 2002,
the results of which have provided more insight into the differences in their characteristics and applicability. In 2003, the IR
department also began using radioembolization.
Prof. Bilbao has authored 35 book chapters and co-edited a
book on radioembolization together with Dr. Reiser. Further­
more, he has published 155 articles in Spanish and international peer-reviewed journals, achieving an impact factor of
200 and approximately 1,000 citations. Prof. Bilbao edits and
reviews for 10 Spanish and international journals, including
JVIR, for which he is associate editor. He has presented 400 pa­
pers at various congresses and has been invited to give
300 lectures at conferences around the globe.
In 1986, Prof. Bilbao co-founded the Spanish Society of
Vascular and Interventional Radiology (SERVEI) which he
headed from 1992 until 1995. He has been an active member
of CIRSE since its beginnings and has attended every one of
its congresses, presenting original material through posters,
oral presentations (awarded in 2001, 2002 and 2004) or invited lectures. Prof. Bilbao has been very active in other areas
of CIRSE, serving as a member of the Clinical Practice Guide
Task Force (1999-2001), as Education Officer (2001-2003), Local
Host Committee Co-Chairman (2004, 2010) and Member of
the Executive Board upon invitation (2006-2009). In 2010 he
was the Josef Roesch Lecturer for CIRSE, speaking on TIPS. The
same year he was awarded the CVIR Editor’s Medal.
Prof. Bilbao is currently President of the European Congress of
Radiology (ECR 2013). Within the European Society of Radiology
(ESR), he has served as a member of the Educational Board
(2002-2008) and has very actively contributed to the ESR’s
e-learning initiatives. He is the Spanish representative in the
POC-UEMS (2002-2005) and the chairman of the ESR’s Subspe­
cialty Committee (2005-2008). He actively contributed to the
creation of the ESR, for which he received the Diploma of the
European Association of Radiology in 2007. Prof. Bilbao’s most
outstanding awards have been conferred by the RSNA for his
work on TIPS (1992-1998) as well as by the Dr. J.M. Sánchez
Pérez Foundation and the Rafael Hervada Foundation for his
work on direct vascular connections in 2003.
At a national level, Prof. Bilbao has served as the delegate for
international affairs of the Spanish Society of Medical Radiolo­gy
(SERAM) from 2002-2006. Today, he serves as one of the society’s
representatives in the National Commission on Radiodiagnostics.

Gruentzig Lecturer
Andrew Holden
Andrew Holden was born in Auckland, New Zealand, on
August 22, 1960. He was raised in Wellington as one of seven
children, with three older sisters, two younger sisters and one
brother. Although Andrew did well at school, his real passion
was sport as he represented his school in top rugby and cricket
teams. He was also a national prize winner in public speaking
and debating.
Andrew decided to study medicine at Otago University in
Dunedin – the oldest and most renowned medical school in
New Zealand. After completing his clinical years as a medical
student in Wellington and taking a 12-month break from medicine to travel, Andrew was accepted into the 5-year radiology
training programme at Auckland Hospital. In his final year, he
was appointed chief registrar and won the best research paper
prize for a junior radiologist or registrar at the 1992 RANZCR
Annual Scientific Meeting in Queensland, Australia. The prize
was a week with Professors Ken Thomson and Arina Van Breda
(then president of SIR) doing intervention at the Royal
Melbourne Hospital. This experience confirmed to Andrew
that Interventional Radiology was his career pathway.
In 1994, Andrew travelled to Royal Perth Hospital in Australia
to gain two years of fellowship experience in Interventional
Radiology and body imaging. During that time, the Vascular
Surgery and Interventional Radiology Departments worked
closely to develop an endograft for aneurysm disease which
subsequently became the highly successful Cook Zenith endograft. Andrew was lucky enough to be an integral part of
the team during the first 100 human cases in Perth and was
involved in proctoring other national and international sites as
they used the device.
In 1997, Andrew returned to Auckland Hospital as a staff interventional radiologist and in 2002 he was appointed Director of
Interventional Radiology, a position he still holds today. He
is head radiologist for the NZ Liver Transplant Programme and
co-director of the Auckland Endovascular Service. In 2005, he
was appointed associate professor of radiology at Auckland
University. Andrew is a committee member of IRSA (Interven­
tional Society of Australasia) and ARGANZ (Abdominal Radio­
logy Society of Australia and New Zealand) as well as an examiner for the RANZCR. He is a member of CIRSE and national
representative for ESGAR.
Andrew has always had an interest in research, particularly related to interventional devices and techniques. He is the au­thor
of over 60 articles in peer-reviewed journals and five book
chapters. His interests include advanced endovascular aneurysm repair techniques, renal and carotid artery interven­tion,
intervention in critical limb ischaemia and advanced liver imag­
ing. Together with his vascular surgical colleague and medical school classmate Andrew Hill, Andrew runs the Vascular
Research Programme at Auckland Hospital, employing 3 fulltime research coordinators. Andrew has been the principal
investigator in 25 “first-in-man” device trials.
Andrew has presented many times at international scientific
meetings, often as part of the invited faculty. He has performed over 50 live interventional cases broadcasts from
Auckland Hospital to overseas sites such as Germany, France,
Hong Kong, USA and Australia. He has proctored interventional cases in China, India, Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia and
Australia.
Andrew has been married to his best friend Tracey for 28 years,
getting married when he was 24 and she was only 22. They
met at the university hostel in Dunedin, shared a flat the following year when still “just good friends” and then fell in love
the following year. They have four fantastic children. Sam (26)
is a successful international criminal lawyer, having worked in
The Hague and now in London. He is also a musician, gaining
great success in “The Voice” in Holland in 2012. Tom (22) is in
his fourth year of architecture and is also a talented musician,
Jacob (18) is in his first year of engineering and Grace (13) is in
her first year of secondary school.
Andrew likes to stay fit, loves hiking, climbing and has run
six marathons, the most recent in 2012. He plays golf and
tennis and loves both river and sea fishing. Andrew is very
patriotic and immensely proud of being a Kiwi. He loves his
beautiful country, family and friends.

Roesch Lecturer
Mario Bezzi
A native of Rome, Italy, Prof. Mario Bezzi attended the Universi­ty
of Rome “Sapienza”, where he graduated summa cum laude
from the School of Medicine in 1982. He entered the Depart­
ment of Surgery of the same university and practiced surgery
for one year; this post-graduate training in surgery was instrumental in improving his clinical background and surgical skills.
While involved in the first clinical applications of intraoperative
ultrasound, however, he developed an interest in diagnostic
imaging.
Between 1983 and 1986, he completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Rome “Sapienza”, followed
by a two-year fellowship in CT-US-MRI at the Department of
Radiology of Thomas Jefferson University and at the University
of Pennsylvania, both in Philadelphia, under the tutorship of
Dr. Barry B. Goldberg and Dr. Herbert Y. Kressel.
In 1988, he started his interventional career in the Division of
Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology at the Hospital
of the University of Rome. His mentor at that time was Prof.
Plinio Rossi. Many of the procedures in non-vascular radiology
which are now considered routine, such as abscess drainage,
biliary drainage and stenting, dilation of benign biliary strictures, chemoembolization and RF ablation of liver tumours,
were either introduced to Italy or further developed by the
team of interventional radiologists working in this division.
Prof. Bezzi is Aggregate Professor of Radiology at the University
of Rome “Sapienza” and is responsible for the management of
human and technological resources in his department. He is
an enthusiastic teacher and is committed to training the next
generation of radiologists, tutoring both medical students and
residents in imaging and Interventional Radiology.
His clinical practice consists mainly of image-guided therapy
in oncology and his research interests focus primarily on liver
tumours. He has been involved in a number of grant-funded
studies, often as principal investigator. Currently his interest is
centred in MR-guided focused ultrasound, and he is involved
in two European projects on the applications of MRgFUS in
moving organs.
Prof. Bezzi has authored 15 book chapters and edited a book
on biliary tract radiology in collaboration with Prof. Plinio Rossi.
Furthermore, he has published 150 articles in Italian and inter­
national peer-reviewed journals, achieving approximately
1,200 citations. Prof. Bezzi reviews for a number of international journals (CVIR, JVIR, European Radiology) and has presented
more than 400 papers at various congresses.
From early in his career, Prof. Bezzi has been involved in the
activities of CIRSE. He was nominated Chairman of the Scientific
Programme Committee for the 1996 Annual Meeting in Madeira,
and subsequently supervised the Scientific Pro­gramme of
CIRSE ‘97, ’98 and ‘99. Since then, Prof. Bezzi has been very active within the CIRSE, serving as Chairman of the Standards of
Practice Committee (1999-2003), as organiser of CIRSE 2006 in
Rome, as a member of the Programme Committee (2007-2012),
and as a member of the Executive Committee since 2012.
Currently, he is Editor-in-Chief of ESIRonline, the website
platform that houses all lectures and presentations from
CIRSE events.
Mario Bezzi has been married to his charming wife, Ada, for
more than 25 years and is the proud father of a beautiful
daughter, Costanza. In his free time, he enjoys watersports and
sailing, as well as travelling and contemporary art. He is also a
wine-lover who enjoys wine tastings and visiting vineyards.

The CardioVascular and Interventional Radiology (CVIR)
Subsection of the Singapore Radiological Society (SRS) was
formed in the year 2000 and currently comprises just over
40 members. Most of our members have undergone IR fellow­
ship training in the UK, Australia, USA, Canada and more
recently in France, Italy and Germany. Our public and private
hospitals have state-of-the-art angiographic equipment and
are offering the full spectrum of IR services.
Our subsection members meet monthly to share interesting
cases or mortality/morbidity cases, providing an excellent
chance to learn from each other. We also regularly invite overseas experts to lecture at our monthly meetings. The highlight
of our education calendar is the annual workshop – WIRES
(Workshop in Interventional Radiology Education Singapore).
The workshop is conducted over a weekend with local and
overseas experts sharing their expertise on one or two IR
themes. Concurrent sessions designed for IR nurses and
technicians are also included in the WIRES programme.

Main Themes
The Wave of Innovation
How to navigate the scientific
programme in this booklet
The programme is designed to facilitate itinerary planning
allowing delegates to follow one of these themes with little
or no overlap. In this booklet you will find colour codes for
each of the six main themes. Those codes can be found
throughout the whole programme (programme overview,
main theme description, programme in chronological order).
This way you will easily recognise your topics of interest.
Vascular Interventions
Interventional Oncology
The programme for vascular interventions will once again be
one of the most dominant in the 2013 congress, with numerous
Special Sessions devoted to vascular disease. Among the high­
lights of the CIRSE 2012 congress in Lisbon were the out­comes
of the latest trials in the management of SFA and BTK peripheral
vascular disease, and these sessions will be repeated under the
new umbrella of Evidence Forums. This new format will be
devoted to trial updates and is a continuation of the in­­­creased
emphasis on evidence in the CIRSE scientific programme.
Special Sessions will also give updates on the management of
abdominal and thoracic aortic disease, renal denervation,
hepatic, portal and mesenteric thrombosis and upper extre­mi­ty
peripheral vascular disease. As venous disease is becoming an
increasing part of the workload of interventional radiologists,
there will be Special Sessions on varicose veins, thrombolysis of
deep venous thrombosis and haemodialysis. The Controversies
Sessions involving debates continue to be popular, and this
year’s sessions will be on the management of aortic disease,
endoleaks, peripheral vascular intervention and portal hypertension. Delegates wishing to learn in an informal atmosphere
by working up cases with experts are encouraged to attend
the Workshops and Interactive Case Sessions, which will focus
on important aspects of vascular interventions, such as varicose
veins, lower extremity occlusive disease, endoleak management and the management of chylothorax. There will be a
new Hands-on Workshop devoted to renal de­nervation, which
will involve the range of new devices available for this exciting
procedure. The Hands-on Workshop on Closure Devices is still
enjoying great popularity and will again be part of the CIRSE
programme in 2013, with the added feature of including
percutaneous large vessel closure devices for endovascular
aortic procedures.
Interventional oncology will occupy a deservedly prominent
place in the CIRSE 2013 programme, with the aim of illustrating
new advances in the field. The Scientific Programme Committee
has endeavoured to create exciting sessions, featuring updates
on oncological interventions that will be essential viewing for
experts, as well as sessions that will appeal to IRs who want to
become more involved in interventional oncology. This year,
one of the Hot Topic Symposia – an integral feature of the
CIRSE programme – will be devoted to the role of interventio­
nal oncology in lung cancer. A high-level international faculty
will discuss the new developments in this field and how inter­
ventional oncologists can play a role in the management of
lung cancer. In the Special Sessions programme, there will be
two Evidence Forum sessions on the management of hepato­
cellular carcinoma and colorectal metastases. The aim of these
sessions will be to review the outcomes of the major trials of
all competing therapies for these diseases, with a summarising
conclusion given by the moderator of each session, whose role
it will be to provide recommendations regarding the best treat­­ment methods based on the available evidence. Other high­
lights of the Special Sessions will be high intensity focused
ultrasound (HIFU), irreversible electroporation and new plat­­forms
for drug delivery in interventional oncology. Furthermore, there
will be Special Sessions on renal tumour ablation and new cli­­­nical
applications for interventional oncologists. Ablation tech­niques
for different types of cancer will also be discussed in the onco­
logy Workshops and Hands-on Work­shops, where the particu­
larly popular sessions “Starting your practice” and “Liver” will
again take place twice, in order to give more delegates the
opportunity to attend. Participants will be able to access the
full range of ablation systems (RFA, cryo­therapy, microwave,
electroporation). Increased focus will be given to ultrasoundguided procedures in a “How I do it” format. Highlights will
include radioembolization and portal vein embolization.
C RSE
Barcelona 2013
Transcatheter Embolization
Transcatheter embolization, now an integral part of the daily
practice of most interventional radiologists, will continue to be
represented by an extensive educational programme at CIRSE
2013. There will be three Foundation Course sessions devoted
to embolization, focusing on gastrointestinal haemorrhage, female genito-urinary embolization and vascular malformations.
All Foundation Course lectures will be delivered in a “How I do
it” format, and are aimed at trainees in IR or newly qualified IRs.
As usual, there will also be a comprehensive programme of Spe­­cial
Sessions and Workshops which will cover all facets of embo­li­za­
tion therapy. The main Special Session topics will be uterine
artery embolization, embolization in the thorax, visceral artery
aneurysms, trauma and an exciting session entitled “Prostate
artery embolization: real benefit or myth?”. Delegates are also
encouraged to attend the Interactive Case Session on haemorrhage, which will provide the opportunity to learn in a more
in­formal and interactive atmosphere. There will be a series of
embolotherapy Workshops and all will involve case-based dis­
cussions to illustrate the topics. The “Embolization: materials and
tools” Hands-on Workshop has become one of the highlights of
the practical programme at CIRSE, giving participants insight in­to
the manipulation of the available embolization tools and mate­
rials, such as liquid and particulate agents, glue, coils and plugs.
Neuro interventions
After attracting major interest from CIRSE delegates in 2011,
the neuro interventions track experienced a significant increase
in session attendance in Lisbon in 2012, with most rooms filled
to capacity. More and more vascular interventional radiologists
in Europe are becoming involved in neuro interventions, parti­
cu­larly in the management of acute stroke. With this in mind,
the neuro programme for 2013 has been expanded and will
include two Foundation Course sessions, two Special Sessions,
three Workshops and a Hot Topic Symposium. We envisage
that the Hot Topic Symposium on the role of interventional
radiologists in the management of acute stroke will be one of
the 2013 congress highlights. Senior interventional radiologists
and senior neuroradiologists will discuss several important
aspects of this topic. The two new Foundation Course sessions,
aimed at interventional radiologists who wish to become more
involved in stroke therapy, will contain lectures that will discuss
all relevant aspects of stroke therapy for interested IRs. Special
Session and Workshop topics will include carotid and vertebral
intervention, fundamentals of intracerebral aneurysms and
vascular malfor­mation management, and the management
of epistaxis. There will be two Hands-on Workshops on stroke
therapy. Partici­pants will have the opportunity to test several
devices specifically de­­­signed for intracranial thrombectomy in
a simulator or flow model under the supervision of wellrecognised experts in this field.
Main Themes
Non-vascular Interventions
This year, the programme committee has composed three
Foundation Course sessions, three Special Sessions, five
Workshops, and two Interactive Case Sessions in the nonvascular field. Foundation Course sessions are aimed at trainee
IRs and IRs who wish to broaden their practice into new areas.
The Foundation Course topics in 2013 will be spine interventions, biliary interventions and biopsy and abscess drainage,
all in a “How I do it” format. Besides Special Sessions on the
role of non-vascular IR in gastrointestinal and genito-urinary
inter­vention, there will be a session on “New horizons in
musculoskelet­al interventions”, which will include lectures
on percutaneous screw fixation of fractures and MR-guided
interventions. Peri­pheral bone interventions, MSK ultrasoundguided procedures and acute pancreatitis will be among the
Workshop topics for CIRSE 2013. The CIRSE 2012 Hands-on
Workshops on “Vertebral augmentation techniques” proved,
as ever, to be a great success and will again be held in 2013.
Three sessions will be offer­ed in which participants will have
the opportunity to practice needle placement, cement
preparation and injection.
IR Management
CIRSE encourages interventional radiologists to become in­­
volved in IR management, as clinical care is an important aspect of practice in Interventional Radiology. The introduction
of IR man­agement at CIRSE 2011 was a great success and it con­
tinued to be popular at CIRSE 2012. Accordingly, the IR manage­­
ment programme has been expanded for the CIRSE 2013 programme. Besides a Special Session focusing on radiation dose
management and anaesthesia, sedation and analgesia, there
will be an exciting session on training and accreditation for IRs.
This session will discuss the new CIRSE IR curriculum, the role
of the EBIR and other issues, such as the pros and cons of re­
certification. Furthermore, a Special Session will be dedicated
to clinical practice for IRs in the management of lower limb
occlu­sive disease. This session will explore how IRs can provide
total man­agement of the patient with lower limb arterial disease. In the Workshop programme, there will be a Workshop
entitled “How to pass the EBIR”. Aspects of IR management
will not only be dealt with in sessions specifically labelled as
“IR Management” topics. Issues such as patient referral, the
relationship with other clinical services and the management
and follow-up of patients will be addressed in many sessions,
producing a common pathway throughout the whole session
programme.

CIRSE Session Types
Amazing Interventions
The aim of this new session is to present examples of unusual
and difficult interventional procedures. Acclaimed experts in in­­terventional radiology will present brief cases of their most un­­­
usual and challenging procedures. The emphasis of the session
will be to highlight innovative ways that interventional radiolo­
gists can solve difficult problems and get out of trouble. It is en­visaged that the session will be both educational and entertaining.
“CIRSE meets …” Session
The “CIRSE meets …“ programme proved to be an important
platform for establishing and strengthening the relations
between CIRSE and its distinguished Group Members – the
National Societies in the field of Interventional Radiology.
For the detailed programme, please refer to page 15.
Evidence Forums
Evidence Forums are a new type of Special Session focusing on
the outcomes of major trials investigating devices or techniques
for conditions commonly treated by interventional radiologists.
Each forum will consist of several short talks presented by
leaders in the field. Each speaker will present the evidence for
and against the use of a specific device or technique for the
treatment of the disease under evaluation. At the end of the
session, the modera­tor will summarize the evidence presented
and provide conclusions regarding the best method of
treatment based on the current evidence.
Film Interpretation Quiz
The Film Interpretation Quiz is one of CIRSE’s most popular
sessions and will be run as a “last man standing” quiz. The Quiz
Master will present the audience with two possible answers to
each case – those choosing incorrectly will be eliminated and
must sit down, while those who get the answer right will continue to the next case. The last few contestants left standing
will be invited onstage for a head-to-head finale.
Foundation Courses
Foundation Courses cover a specific area of Interventional
Radiology, focusing on basic principles and illustrating the
procedure in a step-by-step fashion. They are designed for
radiologists in training and new consultants, as well as for
experienced consultants who require a refresher course on
the subject. There will be plenty of time for questions and
discussion. Each session will last one hour.
For the detailed programme, please refer to pages 22-23.
Free Paper Sessions
Researchers will present original papers on new and original
aspects of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology. Select­ed
papers will be gathered into sessions, each dealing with a
homogenous topic. There will be time for discussion between
researchers and attendees after each presentation.
Featured Papers:
In order to achieve a more interactive format to the Free Paper
sessions, one paper per session will be highlighted. More time
will be dedicated to this featured paper by means of further
que­stions prepared prior to the meeting by the moderator.
This will ensure a more structured and thorough discussion of
the topic.
Hands-on Workshops
The participants of Hands-on Workshops can follow live demon­
strations of interventional techniques and practice certain procedures under the guidance of a technician and/or instructor.
For the detailed programme, please refer to pages 46-51.
Hot Topic Symposia
The Hot Topic Symposia aim to address important IR topics that
are current and controversial in the setting of a plenary session.
Invi­­ted speakers will give brief lectures on important aspects of
the subject under discussion. A major feature of these sessions
will be a round table discussion involving the speakers and the
audience.
For the detailed programme, please refer to pages 24-27.
Interactive Case Sessions
CIRSE‘s Interactive Case Sessions are divided into several topics.
After two presenters have shown individual cases, the audience
is asked for its opinion on treatment. These interactive sessions
provide an excellent learning experience on how to approach and
work up difficult cases and deal with complications that may arise.
Morbidity & Mortality Conference
The Morbidity and Mortality Conference will analyse Interventio­
nal Radiology cases which led to complications and/or deaths that
could have been avoided. This session provides a valuable learn­ing
experience for everyone involved in Interventional Radiology.
The session will be dedicated to vascular and non-vascular cases.
Satellite Symposia
Satellite Symposia are organised by industrial companies and
take place at lunchtime as well as in the morning and in the
evening in order to avoid time conflicts with the main scientific
programme. During these sessions cutting-edge information
on interventional equipment and techniques is provided.
The Satellite Symposia programme will be published in the
final programme.
Special Sessions
Special Sessions are designed to impart the latest knowledge
on topics of interest to interventional specialists. These sessions
are the backbone of the CIRSE meeting and are specifically
chosen by the programme planning committee because of
their importance in daily practice.
Workshops
During Workshops you will have the chance to learn from your
colleagues’ expertise in an informal, interactive manner. Work­
shops will entail individual cases and discussion points with
regard to the particular interventional topic. Attendees can
contribute their opinions and ask questions in small groups.

Intra-arterial stroke management –
should this be an IR procedure?
The involvement of interventional radiology in the management of stroke has increased in
recent years. This is in line with the rising prevalence of endovascular treatment modalities,
including embolization for haemorrhagic stroke and thrombolysis, thrombectomy and
recanalisation for ischaemic stroke. The timely application of these interventions has proven
to be a beneficial addition to the armoury of stroke treatments.
As the incidence of stroke is set to rise with the ageing population, rapid access to the most
advanced and effective treatments is not only of great importance today but will be even more
so in the future. In order to guarantee the safe provision of sophisticated neurointerventional
techniques it is vital that experienced and well-trained experts are available to meet demand.
Many interventional radiologists are already involved in endovascular stroke treatment by
virtue of their relevant and extensive education, training and experience. Aside from the
recognised advantages of general multidisciplinary stroke care, the involvement of other
specialties in the delivery of endovascular treatments has become a topic of discussion,
particularly regarding the establishment of common training programmes and the
standardisation of competence.
Further to issues of individual competence are logistical concerns about how best to
organise medical expertise to serve patient needs, in terms of both geographical
coverage and quality of treatment.
The potentially huge growth in this field and the wider implications for IR of the
connected issues means that discussion of this topic is as much of interest to general
interventional radiologists as it is to those already closely involved in the area.

Hot Topic Symposium
The scientific programme at CIRSE 2013 features a range of sessions on the theory and practice of
stroke management. The Hot Topic Symposium on intra-arterial stroke manage­ment is a perfect
complement to these sessions as it addresses concerns and issues around the provision of treatments
including the balancing of quality and capacity. The session not only deals with the status quo but also
looks ahead to how IR can be more strongly in­­­tegrated into stroke management and how the best results
for patients can be guaranteed.
As training is the foundation of procedural competence, Prof. Dierk Vorwerk (Ingolstadt/DE) will
start the session with a description of recent developments relating to training frameworks for
neuroradiologists as well as for other specialties who are involved in the delivery of neurointerventions.
The background to training having been explored, Dr. Tommy Andersson (Stockholm/SE) will
continue by considering the provision of intra-arterial thrombectomy, which has had a large impact
on modern stroke treatment and is set to become even more significant in the future. It is known that
neurovascular centres with a high case load build greater expertise, in light of this the question of
whether this important procedure should only be performed by dedicated neuroradiologists is up for
discussion.
In the spirit of debate, Prof. Klaus Hausegger (Klagenfurt/AT) will respond by considering whether well
trained “general interventionalists“ have the necessary skills and knowledge to safely perform intraarterial thrombectomy and what implications this may have for ser­vice provision. Having established
this, Prof. Dierk Vorwerk will again take to the podium to consider the extent to which general IRs are
already involved in stroke therapy across Europe.
Prof. Jim Reekers (Amsterdam/NL) will conclude the session by discussing possible strategies for the
future involvement of IRs in the provision of acute stroke therapy and what this would mean for IR and
for patient care.

Treatment of lung cancer –
the choices, and how to make them
Interventional oncology has been making incredible progress in recent years, and already,
IR therapies for liver cancers are well accepted and widely used. However, exacting
research is also being conducted into other cancer types, with some impressive results.
Lung cancer therapy is an area where IR is showing real potential. Various principles
(thermal ablation; mechanical ablation; embolization) have been investigated in lung tumour
models, and data is now available to support their use in certain clinical settings, particularly
radiofrequency ablation.
Good patient selection is a crucial factor in achieving positive outcomes. A thorough
knowledge of the technology to be used is essential, as is an awareness of the limitations of the
planned treatment.
Patient selection
So far, data suggest that the ideal RFA candidate suffers from stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)
which is either surgically inoperable or at high risk for lobectomy or pneumo­nectomy. Multiple studies
show that tumours to be treated by RFA should be <3cm, as it is difficult to ensure complete ablation
in larger targets. Location <1cm from the main bron­chi is an absolute contraindication, as is association
with atelectasis or obstructive pneumo­nitis, and unmanageable coagulopathy. However, contact with
the visceral pleura is not a contraindication, as possible pleural effusion or increased pain can be easily
managed.
Although it is currently accepted that RFA should be reserved for surgically inoperable patients (largely
due to the associated difficulty in assuring complete tumour destruction and in sampling the tumour
tissue), data from the Institut Gustave Roussy suggests that this prescription may not be absolute:
strangely, their study reported better survival out­comes for the >70 age group. This anomaly is most
likely due to the inclusion criteria – patients below this age were those deemed inoperable due to the
tumour location or co-morbidities, while all patients over 70 were deemed inoperable primarily due to
their age, and thus RFA was performed on less complex tumour presentations in that age group.
Nonetheless, good patient selection remains a key indicator of outcomes, along with suitable imaging,
anaesthesia and patient positioning (both in terms of trajectory of the needle and tumour mobility).
Technical limitations
Understanding the limitations of your technology is also crucial, and can allow creative so­lutions to
possible complications. Thermal damage to nerves and other structures can be avoided by judicious
use of air protection or a fluid buffer, such as a 5% glucose solution.
RFA and other thermal technologies can be negatively affected by vessel proximity, as the heat-sink
effect prevents a complete ablation. There are several options to overcome this limitation, including
sequential activation or use of an alternative energy source, such as microwave ablation or irreversible
electroporation. MWA also allows larger burn-zones, which allows for the destruction of more bulky
tumours.

Hot Topic Symposium
This Hot Topic Symposium will approach the topic from a number of angles, painting a full picture of
the considerations and skills needed to provide these cutting-edge therapies.
Dr. José Vilar (Valencia/ES) will be discussing the imaging modalities available to guide the treatment
of lung cancer. CT modalities are currently the most widely used, with spiral CT enjoying favour among
many who are investigating ablation of lung cancers. Fluoro-CT can offer contrast-free imaging, while
contrast-enhanced CT can demonstrate morphology and enhancement pattern. The use of PET-CT and
diffusion-weighted MR are also under investigation for this treatment.
Various forms of thermal ablation will be discussed by Dr. Thierry de Baère (Villejuif/FR), who has been
researching this field for many years, and who was one of the authors in the Institut Gustave Roussy
study. Dr. de Baère will present the data from leading studies, and analyse whether this data indicates
that thermal ablation for NSCLC should be offered routinely as part of a hospital’s oncology regimens.
Prof. Afshin Gangi (Strasbourg/FR) will examine the case for the use of cryotherapy in the lungs and
thoracic wall, using his own extensive research and data to give the most up-to-date overview of this
novel therapy. Although less widely used than technologies like RFA or MWA, cryotherapy offers a
number of unusual features that can be of benefit in tumour destruction, and Prof. Gangi will discuss
whether these benefits transfer well to the pulmonary setting.
To ensure a valuable balance in these discussions, radiation oncologist Dr. Lisbeth Kenny (Brisbane,
QLD/AU) will offer her insights into choosing the right therapy for a lung cancer patient. She will weigh
up not only how to decide whether a patient should receive treatment for their particular condition,
but if so, how the correct course of therapy can be selected by a multidisciplinary team.

CIRSE Considers the Evidence
Keeping pace with the latest developments in interventional medicine, CIRSE 2013
sees the introduction of a new session type into the scientific programme. Evidence
Forums will see the most up-to-date research summarised and discussed in the
context of relevant questions arising in current practice. Among the topics this year
are superficial femoral artery interventions and below-the-knee interventions, in
both cases the question will be asked whether we know the optimal treatment yet.
Evidence forum:
SFA – do we know the optimal treatment yet?

A range of devices and techniques are now available
for revascularisation of the superficial femoral artery
in peripheral arterial disease. These treatments offer
great potential in reducing morbidity and restoring
quality of life. However, in light of the latest studies
and the volume of data now available there is a need
to compare strategies carefully. This is essential if
interventional radiologists are to offer an optimal and
evidence-based approach for each patient.
In this forum, clinical data on a wide spectrum of
endovascular SFA technologies will be compared,
including drug-eluting and covered stents as compar­ed
to bare metal stents, as well as drug-eluting balloons
and atherectomy with cutting balloons.
The session will end with a summary of the evidence
and conclusions will be drawn by the experts in a pa­
nel discussion, considering if there is indeed a current
“optimal treatment” or if further investigations and
longer term trial results are needed in particular areas.

SFA and BTK interventions
Peripheral arterial disease is on the rise, and is a cause for great concern. As the traditional
response to the ischaemia and non-healing ulcers that arise from this disease is amputation, it
can be costly in both economic and social terms. A commonly quoted figure is that somewhere
in the world, a leg will be lost to diabetes every 30 seconds. Even with the wealth of IR options
available, up to 67% of CLI patients in the USA have a primary amputa­tion as their initial
treatment – a staggering figure when one considers that recanalisation techniques can lower
the amputation rate in CLI patients from 73-95% down to just 25%.
Evidence forum:
BTK – do we know the optimal treatment yet?
Image courtesy of Dr. Massimiliano Di Primio
Below-the-knee interventions rightly occupy an
important place in the armoury of IR procedures. Not
only can they be considered the first true IR therapy,
but their refinement over the last 50 years, in tandem
with the simultaneous rise in both life-expectancy
and incidence of diabetes, leaves below-the-knee
interventions more needed than ever.
PTA is widely held to be the primary treatment for
lower-limb occlusions, and despite high restenosis
rates, it achieves excellent limb-salvage results.
Retreatment is always an option, and assisted and
secondary patency rates are very high. Advances in
stent and balloon technologies (along with dedicated
catheters and guidewires) allow IRs to treat a wide
range of BTK lesions, both long and short.
However, navigating all these options can prove diffi­
cult, and an overview of the evidence and indications
for some of these techniques and tools will be provided
by experts in the field, followed by a panel discussion
and questions from the audience.

Vascular closure devices (VCDs) are commonly utilised to
man­age arterial puncture sites after therapeutic arterial
interventions.
This series of hands-on workshops provides an overview of
current embolization materials and techniques.
This hands-on workshop will introduce and discuss VCDs
cur­rently available on the market in a comprehensive and
balanced manner, including indications for use, optimal technique, contraindications as well as potential complications and
their management. Furthermore, many tips and tricks for pro­
per use of closure devices during daily practice will be shared
during the hands-on part. The course will be completed by a
dedicated tutorial of the “preclose” technique for closing large
arterial punctures for total percutaneous aortic repair.
By the end of the workshop all participants should be able to
understand the various principles and indications of current de­
vices, completed by the opportunity of extensive sample testing.
Learning objectives
– To become familiar with the current available vascular
closure devices for peripheral and aortic interventions
– To understand when and how to successfully use a vascular
closure device
– To know when not to use a vascular closure device and
how to avoid complications
– To gain experience with the “preclose” technique required
for total percutaneous treatment of aortic aneurysms
In each workshop session a brief introduction is followed by
partici­pants rotating around 4 to 6 tabletop demonstrations.
The workshops may be attended as a series or individually.
Partici­pants will engage informally with instructors and try out
various embolic materials on anatomical and flow models.
The emphasis of the sessions is a hands-on practical approach.
Participants can handle and/or perform embolization with
mechanical, liquid or particulate embolic agents (according to
the session). The focus is on those with limited experience with
embolization or those wishing to refresh their knowledge.
Learning objectives
– To understand the basic principle of embolization
– To become familiar with the common embolic agents
– To be able to choose an appropriate embolic agent
– To know how to correctly prepare and deliver the chosen agent
– To understand how to avoid non-target embolization and
other complications

Hands-on Workshops
IVC filters
Principles to practice:
education and simulation skills training
Coordinators: O. Pellerin (Paris/FR),
A.F. Watkinson (Exeter/UK)
IVC filters are widely used in Europe. They all have pros
and cons regarding technical features that make them
more or less difficult to retrieve or convert.
The workshop will start with a 15-minute introduction focused
on the technical features of the filters available in the room.
Participants will then have the opportunity to test the filters
on models, with the help of experts who will be on hand. This
workshop is aimed at vascular IRs who perform IVC filter placement and want to learn the specific techniques of filter
extraction and conversion.
Learning objectives
– To learn the basic technical features of IVC filters and be able
to choose an appropriate device
– To practise the step-by-step technique for implantation and
extraction/conversion
– To learn technical tips and tricks

This popular series of workshops uses a round table
discussion format with topic experts to deliver key
knowledge and practical tips followed by practice with
the aid of high fidelity simulators.
Each session is aimed at delegates with a specific level of
ex­perience (core, intermediate or advanced). The round-table
discussions are themed around learning objectives which
relate to a specific clinical or procedural topic.
The delivery of each session is flexible to respond to delegates’
interests, and emphasis is placed on small group teaching allow­
ing close interaction with the expert faculty. Equipment and de­
vices will be available to demonstrate deployment technique.

Renal denervation
Stroke therapy
Coordinators: F. Fanelli (Rome/IT),
G. Goh (London/UK)
Coordinators: J. Berkefeld (Frankfurt/DE),
H. van Overhagen (The Hague/NL)
Transcatheter renal denervation is a novel therapy for patients with treatment resistant hypertension, a condition
that leads to a higher risk of major cardiovascular events.
An increasing number of interventional radiologists are
involved in intra-arterial therapy for acute cerebral stroke.
There is increasing evidence that urgent restoration of
cerebral circulation by mechanical thrombectomy is one of
the most important factors determining the fate of
patients with acute ischaemic stroke.
In this workshop an overview of sympathetic nervous system
anatomy, physiology and physiopathology will be followed by
a description of the technical aspects of renal denervation.
During the hands-on part of the course participants will learn
how to use currently available devices in order to become
fami­liar with the procedure and be able to compare their
characteristics.
Experienced tutors will be present in an informal setting to
discuss technical tips and tricks, getting you ready to start your
renal denervation practice.
Learning objectives
– To understand the disease of treatment-resistant hypertension
and its relationship with the sympathetic nervous system
– To receive the latest research data
– To understand the principles of patient selection
– To learn how to start a practice in renal denervation
– To understand the technical aspects of renal denervation
– To be familiar with the principles and handling of a selection
of devices

Bone and soft tissue
The hands-on workshop on tumour ablation is one of
the most practical teaching sessions included in the
CIRSE programme.
The workshop provides 6 sessions which include introductory
interactive case discussions and practical training upon the
ba­sic principles of all current ablation systems. The case discussions will highlight indications-contraindications as well as
com­plications and ways to avoid or minimise them.
Participants will then have the opportunity to get familiar with
the equipment and the procedure itself, to practice ablation
using various systems under the guidance of international
ablation experts and to perform ultrasound-guided ablation
on in vitro models.
By the end of the workshop participants, even those with little
or no experience in tumour ablation, will be familiar with a
range of ablation techniques and be aware of tips and tricks
for safe and efficacious clinical application.

Varicose veins
Vertebral augmentation techniques
Coordinators: C.A. Binkert (Winterthur/CH),
K.D. McBride (Dunfermline/UK)
Coordinators: J. Garnon (Strasbourg/FR),
G. Tsoumakidou (Strasbourg/FR)
Endovenous treatment of symptomatic varicose veins has
become more and more accepted throughout Europe. In
many countries these treatments are or will be reimbursed
by insurance companies. Interventional radiologists are
well suited to perform these therapies as they have the
requir­ed skill-set, which includes patient evaluation, diagnostic duplex ultrasound, venous access under ultrasound
guidance and catheter-based intervention. Unfortunately
many IRs are not yet familiar with the available techniques
and devices.
Percutaneous vertebroplasty is a technique in which
acry­lic cement is injected through a needle into a collap­
sed or weakened vertebra. This procedure is effective for
treating certain types of painful vertebral compression
fractures and some painful or unstable benign and
malignant verte­bral lesions which fail to respond to
conservative therapies.
This hands-on workshop gives an opportunity to gain familiarity with the most commonly used techniques and devices for
endovenous therapy, including the handling of different fibres
and probes and the corresponding generators. Participants will
learn how to best access the vein with ultrasound guidance,
how to apply tumescent anaesthesia and how to use the
appropriate devices. In addition there will be the opportunity
to gain insightful advice from expert users.
Learning objectives
– To learn about the different methods for endovenous therapies
– To obtain practical experience with different devices
– To receive hands-on training in ultrasound-guided
venous access
– To learn the technique of tumescent anaesthesia

Kyphoplasty is an adaptation of vertebroplasty. High pressure
balloons are inserted into the vertebral bodies and enable the
creation of a cavity into which cement can be safely injected.
Stentoplasty is a further recently developed adaptation which
involves placing two metallic stents (cages) within the collap­
sed vertebral body and to expand them. The main goal of
stentoplasty is to restore the vertebral body height before
cementation.
As in past CIRSE congresses, this workshop will give an insight
into the principles and techniques of above-mentioned procedures. It will start with a theoretical introduction and a brief
review of the principles and indications. This will be followed
by a hands-on demonstration. Participants will have the
opportunity to practice needle placement, cement preparation and injection on plastic spine models under fluoroscopic
guidance.
Learning Objectives
– To understand the basic principles of the procedures
– To get familiar with the currently available vertebral
augmentation techniques
– To practise needle placement on a lumbar vertebral body
model under fluoroscopic guidance
– To learn and practise cement preparation and delivery under
fluoroscopic guidance
– To learn how to perform kyphoplasty/stentoplasty
