29th Annual UCLA Symposium

This four-day course provides an in-depth review of the specialty of vascular surgery. 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. We have also requested that each speaker end their presentation with 2-3 questions appropriate to their topic. As such, this course can be regarded as a complete didactic review of the specialty of vascular surgery, together with an update of new material.
