Only a few seats remain for CPVI hands-on skills course


Only a few spots remain available for the Society for Vascular Surgery’s new Complex Peripheral Vascular Intervention (CPVI) Skills Course. Today—Thursday, Oct. 20—is the final day to register.

The interactive course will be held Oct. 23 and 24 at the OLC Education and Conference Center in Rosemont, Illinois. It will include both case-based and hands-on learning; participants will be able to practice the latest procedures on cadavers and benchtop models during small-group simulations.

Case directors are Patrick Geraghty, MD, Vikram Kashyap, MD, and Daniel McDevitt, MD. The three have assembled what they call an all-star faculty of 19 renowned surgeons well-versed in interventions for peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

Treating patients with PAD is the largest clinical area for vascular surgeons in the United States, said Kashyap. “Surgeons need to become familiar with the latest treatments and technology so they can provide the best patient care possible,” he said.

The course, he said, was designed by vascular surgeons for vascular surgeons. It will include a demonstration of a percutaneous deep vein arterialization system, currently under evaluation.
