Overview

The VEINS (Venous Endovascular INterventional Strategies) merged with VIVA in 2015.  The VEINS at VIVA is back for its 3rd year in Las Vegas with its state-of-the-art venous content! Drs. Michael Jaff and Raghu Kolluri return as the course directors.  Multispecialty, internationally renowned faculty, will deliver lectures and participate in hands-on workshops and intimate breakout discussions. This 1 ½ day interactive course held in Wynn Las Vegas will be focused on thrombosis, acute and chronic venous diseases, lymphedema and offer a comprehensive analysis of the critical issues facing vascular specialists today.  Results from much anticipated land-mark clinical trials in venous disease will be reported in 2017.  The VEINS will provide critical analysis of these data.  There is increasing awareness of Pulmonary Embolism and development of Pulmonary Embolism Response teams across the country.  It is now more important than ever to be at the forefront of these new developments, review the state-of-the-art technologies and assess outcomes of patient centered strategies.  All this will be done in an up-close and personal setting, for which The VEINS is known for, providing ample time to discuss cases and to mingle with colleagues and faculty.

Target Audience

The target audience for this CME activity is for interventional cardiologists, vascular medicine specialists, interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, internists, fellows and RT’s/NP’s/PA’s/RN’s interested in exploring cutting-edge and future strategies for venous treatment as well as those who are interested in a complete understanding of venous disease.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand medical, endovascular and surgical therapies for chronic venous disease.
  • Appreciate the role of non-invasive technologies including physiologic testing, duplex ultrasonography, and CT and MR venography and invasive diagnostics such as intra vascular ultrasound, in the management of venous disease.
  • Appreciate the available therapeutic options and understand contemporary data in the management of superficial and deep vein disease.
  • Analyze the guidelines and available data and complications arising from the placement of IVC filter.
