WavelinQ EndoAVF Training Course

An Exceptional Learning Opportunity.
BD Peripheral Intervention invites you to participate in a hands-on education opportunity.

Course Details & Objectives

This course will provide essential background in theoretical knowledge, as well as clinical and technical skills required for clinicians to undertake the endovascular creation of an arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis. Topics covered include identifying endoAVF candidates, planning cases and managing the procedure for ultimate success in providing patients a vascular access without open surgery. Experienced specialists will deliver in-depth lectures and live case observations. They will also guide you through hands-on cadaveric work to simulate in-case device handling and essential fluoroscopic technique.

All courses are currently hosted in Austin, Dallas, and Houston, TX.

Attendees can expect to be fully immersed in, but not limited to, these topics:

  • Benefits of EndoAVF
  • WavelinQ 4F Device Overview
  • Vascular Anatomy and Physiology
  • Patient Selection and Vessel Mapping
  • Case Planning
  • Procedural Management; Patient prep & Surgical set-up
  • Troubleshooting
  • Case Studies
