  • Optimal Management in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery 2024

    About The Event

    2024 Course Overview

    This is the 38th year of our postgraduate course in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery! Providing a unique function in the CME forum, it involves all of the Boston area medical centers - bringing together highly distinguished faculty, including leaders in the field who are recognized authorities on the national and international scale. The Linton Lecture, an ever-popular highlight of the course, will be presented this year by Dr. Michael Conte of the University of California, San Francisco.

    The course is a focused, up-to-date approach on topics of keen interest in vascular disease, including patient assessment by vascular surgeons and other vascular specialists. Talks provide perspectives on optimal approaches to evaluation, diagnosis and management (including technical performance in ‘How I Do It’ sessions) and offer specific evidence-based treatment options for a wide array of vascular problems. Additionally, we’ll address and discuss many existing controversies in the field.

    Learnings can translate into improved patient outcomes through a better understanding of pathogenesis, the diagnosis and natural history of the disease processes and how to select the optimal methodology for treatment. Register Today!

    Learning Objectives

    The specialty of vascular surgery has evolved dramatically, but never more profoundly than in recent years. In view of the rapid development of novel, evolving technologies, the generation of information at a rate faster than at any time in history, and the unprecedented increases in population health concerns around circulatory disease, there has never been a more challenging time to be a vascular surgeon… or a time when it has been more critical to keep abreast of developments in the field! This course provides a unique function in educating attending surgeons as well as fellows, involving all of the Boston-area and major North East medical centers, providing perspectives from highly distinguished faculty, including many leaders in the field who are recognized authorities on a national and international scale.

    Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
