Anesthesia for Office-Based Vein Procedures

SKU:
STANDARDCOURSE-133

Please login or register to take this course.

Traditionally, venous interventions were carried out in the hospital often under general anesthesia. Advances in technology have transformed many of these procedures which can now be safely carried out in an office setting. These interventions are typically performed under local anesthesia which when performed properly can be safely carried out. Nonetheless, a thorough knowledge base is required in order to minimize the inherent that persist with any anesthesia. Dr. Mauriello is past president of the American College of Phlebology, and is uniquely and eminently qualified to speak on this subject given his background in anesthesia coupled with nearly 3 decades of exclusive phlebology practice. Additionally, the sonographer can aid in this realm providing imaging to guide the anesthesia as well imaging of adjacent nerves.

Course Objectives

  • Define the types of local anesthesia
  • Learn commonly used anesthetics, typical dosage, and method of action
  • Review potential allergic or adverse reaction to various anesthetics
  • Learn optimal administration techniques
  • Review recommended monitoring for various types of anesthesia
  • Recognize the signs of toxicity

Duplex for saphenous ablation: Techniques

SKU:
STANDARDCOURSE-117

Please login or register to take this course.

This presentation will begin with an anatomical review of the lower extremity venous system since this understanding is critical to know prior to the performance of an ablation. You will learn the steps that we take to make the case more efficient. You will learn how to assist during a thermal ablation procedure and identify three take home tricks to be used during your next endothermal venous ablation procedure.  Running Time: 28"    CME  0.5 hours 

Objectives

  • Describe importance of knowing the anatomy prior to assisting in ablation
  • Explain the importance of knowing the steps of the procedure
  • Describe how to assist in a endovenous thermal ablation procedure
  • Identify three take home tricks

The Small Saphenous Vein: Anatomy, Imaging Tips and Interventional Considerations

SKU:
STANDARDCOURSE-114

Please login or register to take this course.

This presentation will begin with an anatomical review of the small saphenous vein, in particular its termination. A thorough knowledge of anatomy is the critical if one is to successfully evaluate these vessels. The hemodynamics of small saphenous veins and their role in in the lower extremity venous system function is covered. Finally, we review the efficacy and potential benefit with regards to the treatment of these vessels. Importantly, we also thoroughly review the potential pitfalls when treating these truncal veins, including the increased risk of impacting adjacent nerves. (Note: this topic is also covered in the presentation entitled, Imaging of Accessory Veins, the Small Saphenous Vein, and Perforating Veins: Technical Tips and Duplex Predictors of Benefit from Intervention. However, more detailed information specific to the small saphenous vein is contained here. It would generally not be recommended to take this course AND the combined presentation.) 

Objectives:

  • Provide an anatomical overview
  • Learn correct terminology
  • Learn the variations of SSV termination
  • Consider the role of the SSV in venous insufficiency
  • Review the adjacent nerves that are potentially impacted during intervention
  • Contemplate the potential risks and benefits from treatment of this vessel
