Peripheral Vascular Disease Fellows in Training Workshop

Peripheral Vascular Disease Fellows in Training Workshop
Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
This workshop is designed to enable vascular and cardiovascular post-graduate trainees and junior faculty to more effectively identify and treat peripheral vascular disorders and, by so doing, reduce death and disability from atherosclerosis and venous thrombosis. The workshop brings together trainees from diverse disciplines, including cardiovascular and vascular medicine, vascular surgery, and interventional cardiology and interventional radiology to facilitate discussion of the common evidence base practices. It also fosters the commitment of participants to the lifelong creation of cooperative and mutually supportive clinical environments, thus promoting the use of cost-effective, evidence-based diagnostic and therapeutic management strategies for patients with peripheral vascular disorders.

Learning Objectives:
After participating in this activity, participants should be able to:
  • Describe the epidemiology of PAD and effective approaches to its diagnosis and management.
  • Explain outcomes from the CLEVER and ERASE trials and their potential ramifications for PAD treatment..
  • Recognize gender differences in the prevalence, risk factors, presentation, and outcomes of PAD and effectively manage and treat women with PAD.
  • Implement evidence-based recommendations to prevent secondary cardiovascular events in patients with PAD.
  • Define clinical manifestations of CLI and current approaches to risk stratification and treatment.
  • Explain results from studies comparing EVAR with open repair for AAA and their implications for patient selection and management.
  • Explain the risks and benefits of endovascular versus medical approaches for treatment of RAS.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits of medical therapy versus interventional approaches in patients with carotid artery disease.
  • Describe current best practices, controversies, new clinical evidence, and ongoing trials in the area of thrombolytic therapy for the treatment of VTE.
  • Describe the potential risks and benefits of available and emerging novel and anticoagulants for the prophylaxis and treatment of VTE.
Who should attend:
The workshop is designed for trainees (junior faculty, fellows, residents, students) from multiple disciplines relevant to vascular medicine (including cardiovascular and vascular medicine), cardiovascular radiology, vascular surgery, and interventional radiology.  Lectures will be delivered by international experts in vascular diseases. 

Advanced registration is not required; however, attendance is limited and on a first come, first served basis.

Registration for Scientific Sessions opens in June!
