Understanding Aneurysm Coiling in Practice: A Delphi Inquiry into Expert Perception
URL with Digital Object Identifier
Cerebral aneurysm coiling, a prominent procedure under the neurointerventional angiography umbrella, is a challenging endovascular technique requiring significant hands‐on clinical training. As part of the mandatory angiography fellowship, trainees learn and practice complex skills within the walls of the operating theatre (Angio Suite), guided by expert interventionalists. Unfortunately, training assessment is currently limited to subjective scales and quantity of clinical exposure, rather than tested objective criteria adopted in other medical specialties. In order to advance training in this field, objective methods of assessments need to be created, validated and applied to available training systems. However, a representative schema of performed tasks and events in aneurysm coiling needs to be assembled in preparing new assessment methods.
