Upcoming Vascular Annual Meeting Highlights


Cutting-edge research presentations by vascular surgeons from around the world, a preview of the latest vascular surgery products and techniques, and an opportunity to interact with colleagues are all part of the upcoming Vascular Annual Meeting, being held June 5-7, in Boston. A large number of abstract submissions and diligent planning by the Vascular Annual Meeting Program Committee should make this meeting the premier educational event for vascular health professionals in 2014.

“This is an essential, scientific international meeting inclusive of academic and community-based practicing vascular surgeons,” said Ronald Fairman, MD, Vascular Annual Meeting Program Chair. “The Program Committee has worked hard to elevate the meeting to a level of importance that most physicians will want to attend every year.”

The education begins before the meeting officially gets underway with a pre-meeting program on June 4. Six postgraduate courses, with two running concurrently every three hours from 7 am to 5 pm, offer the latest, in-depth information on a variety of topics (separate registration and fee required).

These are followed by concurrent break-out sessions, which include a presentation on controversies in clinical practice.

Vascular Live is a new, interactive experience that puts exhibitors face-to-face with vascular surgeons for 30-minute presentations in the Exhibit Hall.

During Vascular Live, exhibitors will present new ideas, showcase breakthrough technologies, and discuss the latest trends in vascular surgery. State-of-the-art products and techniques will also be showcased in the Exhibit Hall, so take advantage of the opportunity to see a wide variety of vascular surgery products displayed in one location.

Outstanding lectures dominate the meeting on Thursday morning. Plan to attend the William von Liebig Forum, John Homans Lecture, and the E. Stanley Crawford Critical Issues Forum on the appropriate use of vascular surgery procedures.

On Friday, learn more about the Vascular Quality Initiative and hear SVS President Julie Freischlag, M.D.,deliver her presidential address titled, “Of Strategies and Chances.” Saturday’s highlights include the top ten papers which appeared in the Journal of Vascular Surgery, Rapid Paced Papers, and the Late-Breaking Clinical Trials presentation.

In addition to these highlights, more than 100 oral presentations, plus 120 posters, on the most current vascular surgery research is available to Vascular Annual Meeting attendees.

Join colleagues in beautiful Boston, a city filled with history, great neighborhoods, fine dining, and more. Make plans now to attend the Vascular Annual Meeting to improve patient outcomes while learning from the leaders in vascular surgery.
