WLNC 2020 AFTERWORD


Dear Colleagues,

For the first time, WLNC has been organized as an entirely virtual meeting this year on 23-24 October 2020.

We believe we have proven the uniqueness of WLNC as the leading LIVE educational platform in the Endovascular treatment area even during these difficult times and under these difficult conditions by sticking to LIVE Transmissions and not showing recorded cases. In order to bring you this broadcast over 80 people worked behind the secenes that consist of physicians, IT technicians and organizational staff members.

Cases have been transmitted from Istanbul and operated by Dr. Saruhan Cekirge, Dr. Naci Kocer and Dr. Osman Kizilkilic. Medical coordination of the operating teams and the panelists has been carried by Dr. Civan Islak and Dr. Isil Saatci.During the two consecutive day transmissions Dr. Pedro Lylyk, Dr. Ricardo Hanel, Dr. Demetrius Lopes, Dr. Adnan Siddiqui, Dr.Charbel Mounayer and Dr. Bo Hong have interactively led the disscussions for the audience. Live transmissions covered complex intracranial aneurysms treated with different approaches and curative treatment of AVMs and dural AVFs especally with transarterial multi-plug flow control technique.

This year, WLNC has surpassed a registration number of +17.000 from 101 countries. WLNC 2020 broadcast have reached +9500 online viewing numbers at the same time. Thanks to our sponsors enabling us free of charge registration to our community by covering the cost of the most advanced live transmission technology. We have been able to touch every corner of the world for education and training using the high penetration advantage of internet.

In case you couldnt attend the LIVE sessions as a part or completely, we have good news for you ! WLNC 2020 broadcasts will be available on our web page for offline viewing as well.
