VIVA 17 and The VEINS at VIVA


For the past 15 years, VIVA has delivered excellence in professional education by offering attendees an innovative, provocative and balanced educational experience. Enhanced by the opinions of all specialties and stakeholders who touch the vascular patient and the use of cutting-edge educational technology, VIVA provides a lively, interactive learning environment.

Each year, our world-renowned domestic and international faculty challenge attendees, and each other, by critically evaluating new, evolving therapies and innovations, as well as engaging in stimulating discussion on the year’s most challenging cases. VIVA participants learn from one another in an environment that truly supports camaraderie.

VIVA does not shy away from the tough issues, and with our colleagues from regulatory and reimbursement organizations, VIVA exposes obstacles and limitations in the care of vascular patients. With multiple learning venues and formats, intense and focused education, the latest in advanced technology, new hands-on workshops, more global live cases and the latest clinical data presentations, VIVA 17 is a must-see educational event for the dedicated vascular specialist!

The Veins at VIVA

The VEINS at VIVA VIVA welcomed The VEINS (Venous Endovascular INterventional Strategies) course to VIVA 15 and is excited to bring it back for a third year in Las Vegas! The VEINS at VIVA returns with this multispecialty, comprehensive symposium providing an in-depth look into the hottest field in vascular medicine. From diagnosis and management strategies for superficial venous disease to the challenges of intervention for deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary emboli, The VEINS will provide new information to help you care for these complex patients.

With pulmonary embolism representing the highest death rate of hospitalized patients, and DVT episodes outnumbering heart attacks or strokes in the U.S. annually, it is now more important than ever to be at the forefront of new, state-of-the-art technologies. This one-and-a-half-day interactive course held at Wynn Las Vegas will be focused on acute and chronic venous diseases and offer a comprehensive analysis of critical issues facing vascular specialists today.

The VEINS at VIVA, again, brings the state-of-the-art content, including basic venous topics to contemporary science, controversies and expert analyses, along with extended hands-on training with live patients. There will be ample time for discussion with the world-class faculty throughout the meeting. We hope that the knowledge gained at The VEINS will allow attendees to better manage their patients with complex venous disease.

Attendees to The VEINS are also welcome to attend the half-day Aortic Armageddon and CLI sessions on Monday.
