Comprehensive. Practical. Venous Education.
The Venous Symposium (VS) has become one of the premier educational forums dedicated to the study and management of venous disease. Presented in a practical and interactive format, lectures from experts on various areas of venous treatment will cover the latest research and therapies in superficial vein disease, chronic venous obstruction, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and pulmonary embolism (PE). A driving concept behind the symposium, live examinations will allow attendees to experience first-hand how experts evaluate and plan treatment for their patients.
