Fourth Annual UCLA / SVS Symposium: A Comprehensive Review and Update of What’s New in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery
Aug 24 - 26, 2019 | CME 25.25 | USD $999 | Beverly Hills, California
Fourth Annual UCLA / SVS Symposium: A Comprehensive Review and Update of What’s New in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery is organized by David Geffen School of Medicine (DGSOM) at UCLA, Office of Continuing Medical Education and will be held from Aug 24 - 26, 2019 at The Beverly Hilton, Beverly Hills, California, United States of America. Accreditation: The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 25.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This activity provides self-assessment credits toward Part 2 of the American Board of Surgery Maintenance of Certification Program. Course Description: This three-day course represents a joint effort of the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at UCLA and 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). Objectives: At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to affirm or modify their approach to patient management in the following areas: • Indications, technique, and results of the spectrum of open vascular operations including such common procedures as carotid endarterectomy, repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm, aorto-femoral bypass, and infra-inguinal bypass. Also, management of varicose veins and deep venous occlusive disease. • Indications, technique, and results of the spectrum of catheter-based intervention including endovascular repair of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm, aorto-iliac and femoralpopliteal-tibial occlusive disease, and carotid artery stenting. • Medical management of vascular disease including treatment of hypertension, risk factor modification, the use of anti-platelet, anti-coagulant, and statin therapy. • Diagnostic studies including duplex ultrasound, magnetic resonance angiography, CT angiography, and catheter-based contrast angiography.
