After 1-h lecture, participants did 5 h of supervised training on increasingly complex cases.

The sub-score for anatomical measurements was 10.6 (3.9-18.8) and comparable with the experienced group 9.7 (8.1-12.8) (p = .83) but inferior to the expert operators 6.5 (5.2-10.2) (p = .04). The sub-score for stent graft selection was 7.5 (4.9-14.1) and comparable with experienced operators scoring 4.5 (3.6-12.3) (p = .09) but inferior to the expert operators score of 5.0 (3.6-8.4) (p = .01).CONCLUSION: This study presents the results of a standardised one-day basic EVAR sizing and graft selection workshop. Vascular surgery trainees with no prior EVAR experience learned to size and select stent grafts for a simple infra-renal AAA on par with experienced EVAR operators.",
