The Vein Forum is for clinicians in the fields of vascular surgery, interventional radiology, phlebology, interventional cardiology and hematology.
This activity is designed for clinicians to gain an understanding of the newer technologies of endovenous ablation, pharmacomechanical thrombectomy and tissue substitutes for venous ulcer care, as well as the proper ultrasound assessment of a patient with venous diseases. Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should achieve improved competence, practice performance and patient outcomes by being more active in the prevention and treatment of DVT/PE. Participants should be able to utilize new technologies, such as endovenous therapies and foam to treat varicose veins and venous ulcers, feel comfortable using advanced wound care techniques like synthetic skin substitutes, and employ duplex
ultrasonography and intra-venous ultrasound in the treatment of CVI and PTS.
