Liquid and Conformable Embolics
Virtual Summit

Overview:

Gain insights into this emerging area – what are the new products, how are they used, how can these products be seamlessly incorporated into practices, why is there fear in using them, and more.

 
 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the Virtual Summit, participants will be able to: 
  • Understand the technical factors required for successful delivery of glue in the peripheral vasculature.
  • Understand the differences between the available DMSO-based liquid embolic agents and their current status regarding use for peripheral embolization.
  • Differentiate between liquids and conformable solids and review how these differences impact utilization for peripheral embolization.
  • Gain exposure to potential applications for liquid embolic use for peripheral embolization.
