33rd Annual UCLA Symposium:
A Comprehensive Review and Update of What’s
New in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery

his four-day course provides an in-depth review of the specialty of vascular surgery. This will be the 33rd year of offering an in-depth review for those preparing to take the vascular board examina- tions as well as providing the basic didactic education for the vascular residents in training. The course recognizes four major pillars of vascular surgery practice, which include (1) conventional open operations, (2) catheter-based intervention (endovascular surgery), (3) the medical aspects of patient management, (4) diagnostic imaging and noninvasive testing. An internationally recognized faculty will present a comprehensive survey of generally accepted views, including basic science, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of the broad spectrum of vascular disorders. In addition, each speaker has been asked to take a portion of their allotted time in order to review the important new developments, as related to their topic that have taken place within the last year. This year, we will continue to add sections of interactive Q&A following each morning and afternoon session with questions relevant to the topics that have been presented. The questions will be in board format in order to give the participants a preparatory exercise.
In recognition of the increasingly important role of endovascular intervention in the vascular surgeon’s practice, we continue to add topics that provide an update on endovascular surgery together with interactive case presentations involving those techniques.
This course addresses the needs of practicing vascular surgeons who wish to review the specialty and update their knowledge of new topics in this rapidly expanding field. In addition, vascular surgery residents will find this course a comprehensive overview of the subject that is designed to supplement their training and to provide a foundation of basic science necessary for their complete understanding of the subject. It conforms to the clinical and basic science curriculum as outlined by the vascular surgery program directors (APDVS).

The course is supported by a textbook in vascular surgery. The chapters have been written by the course faculty. Participants attending this course will receive the new 8th edition of the textbook, Vascular and Endovascular Surgery: A Comprehensive Review, edited by Wesley S. Moore MD.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that the Society for Vascular Surgery has honored the program by their willingness to offer co-branding of the program.
Objective
The primary objective of this course is to provide the evidence basis for the clinical practice of vascular disease management.
At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to affirm or modify their approach to patient management in the following areas:

  • Indications, technique, and results of the spectrum of open vascular operations including such common procedures as carotid endarterectomy, repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm, aorto-femoral bypass, and infra-inguinal bypass. Also, management of varicose veins and deep venous occlusive disease.
  • Indications, technique, and results of the spectrum of catheter based intervention including endovascular repair of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm, aorto-iliac and femoral-popliteal-tibial occlusive disease, and carotid artery stenting.
  • Medical management of vascular disease including treatment of hypertension, risk factor modification, the use of anti-platlet, anti-coagulant, and statin therapy.
  • Diagnostic studies including duplex ultrasound, magnetic resonance angiograpy, CT angiography, and catheter based contrast angiography.

Disclosure Statement

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is “truly independent” and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that non-promotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program’s participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We, at UCLA, fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
