3rd Annual UCLA / SVS Symposium: A Comprehensive Review and Update of What’s New in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery

This 3-day course represents a joint effort of the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at UCLA and the Society for Vascular Surgery. This program will offer an in-depth review of our specialty for those preparing to take the vascular board examinations as well as providing the basic didactic education for the vascular residents and fellows 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 aspect of patient management, and (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. The 9th edition of the textbook, Vascular and Endovascular Surgery: A Comprehensive Review, edited by Wesley S. Moore, MD, Peter F. Lawrence, MD, and Gustavo S. Oderich, MD, is currently in publication. We anticipate this new addition to be available at the time of the course and will be included as a part of course registration.

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.
