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 event to support all IRs 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. 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.
