1st Edition

ELEC 2022

March 10th to 12th • Dijon • France

Why did we create this new Course?

Dear colleagues,

The European Liquid Embolic Course (ELEC) has been thought and created as a face-to-face event for the Interventional Radiologists to build a strong community, able to share their experiences, to interact about live cases performance and discuss innovations around liquid embolic agents, in a friendly and serene atmosphere.

In this complicated and uncertain times, we have to take difficult decisions to ensure the safety of patients and of our participants.
This is why, we have decided to postpone the 1st Edition of our European Liquid Embolic Course (ELEC) which was supposed to take place from March 11Th to March 13Th, 2021 in Dijon (France).

As liquid embolization is currently used more and more in daily practice, this course format is more than essential for all Interventional Radiologists wanting to improve their knowledge and techniques.
We are convinced that ELEC has a role to play among the European educational and training events
and we will start stronger in 2022!

We can’t wait to meet you in Dijon from March 10th to 12th 2022.

Stay safe!

    Liquid embolization is currently used more and more by interventional radiologists, out of neuro embolization. High embolic efficiency and good clinical results are the main strengths of liquid embolic agents. However, liquid managements and practices are different and a bit more complex than using conventional coils or particles. That’s why, we have conceived ELEC, European Liquid Embolic Course, an annual event to support all IR willing to learn and develop this innovative techniques into their daily practice.

    Liquid embolics can generally be classified into 3 main groups, cyanoacrylates (glue), non-adhesive DMSO based embolics and sclerosants. Despite their similarities, these products demonstrate also some big differences. Among cyanoacrylates, there are some distinctions too that IRs should know. DMSO based embolics include ethylene-vinyl-alcohol-copolymer (EVOH), N-phenyl amide-modified methyl methacrylate/acrylic acid copolymer and Iodinated polyvinyl alcohol polymer ether. Sclerosants include alcohol, polidocanol, sotradecol and doxicycline that can be applied pure, mixed with contrast or in foam.

    Knowing the indications for use, chemical properties and clinical benefits, edges and risks of these products are essential for a well-trained IR.
    This learning curve will be realized in collaboration with a european Faculty, through a 3-day course, featured by educational live cases transmissions from François Mitterrand University Hospital Dijon and case-based interactive discussions, tips&tricks from real life experience, hands-on sessions, short lectures on latest data and techniques, to allow all participants to get the expertise that IR need in the management of liquid embolic agents.

    We truly hope this 1st Edition of ELEC will meet all of your expectations, and we look forward to meeting you in Dijon in March 2021!
