SVS acknowledges industry partners springing to aid of vascular community


It has recently come to the attention of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) that many of our industry partners are generously donating equipment and products to the vascular community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To shine a light on that kindness and share with our members the good that you are doing, the SVS will create a new feature page on its website. Our first submission is from Medtronic, which has set up a donation program for the IN.PACT AV drug-coated balloon for arteriovenous access maintenance in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Company officials plan to donate up to $10 million in product, with each request fulfilled using a standardized 10-unit kit.

As more of our industry partners give back to the vascular community during these difficult times, the SVS will share updates on our Corporate Donation Programs page here, and point to the page regularly via Pulse. If you wish to participate, please contact [email protected].
