Contemporary Concepts and Techniques in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery 2011Date: 04/28/2011 - 04/30/2011
The course is designed to offer an objective review of contemporary care of patients with cerebrovascular disease, lower extremity ischemia, aortic aneurysmal and occlusive disease, venous disease and other challenging vascular conditions. Topics related to appropriate indications for intervention and the most efficient and effective methods of diagnosis and treatment will be stressed, with emphasis on the impact of recent prospective trials, cost-benefit considerations and emerging technology. A series of "Great Debates" will compare newer diagnostic techniques to accepted conventional methods of evaluation and less invasive therapies measured against standard surgical treatment. Each topic-related didactic session will be augmented with a panel discussion and ample time for audience questions and participation. This year the annual Robert R. Linton Lecture will be presented by Dr. Anton Sidawy, Immediate Past President of the Society for Vascular Surgery.
