 SVM 2018 Annual Scientific Sessions
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:The Society for Vascular Medicine is dedicated to improving the recognition and care of vascular diseases; fostering education and research in vascular medicine; and providing leadership to government, industry and the profession regarding issues related to vascular health. SVM includes among its membership the major investigators and opinion leaders in vascular medicine. The field of vascular medicine encompasses a broad spectrum of arterial, venous and lymphatic disorders, as well as the associated medical disorders of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus. This diversity and complexity of vascular diseases requires knowledgeable practitioners of vascular medicine to provide cost-effective care.

Scientific Sessions
As a result of attending these sessions, the participant will be able to: OVERALL
 Review the rational clinical approach to common chief complaints encountered in vascular medicine practice.
 Apply the appropriate use of the direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs); know how to choose the right agent and the right dose as well as the latest data regarding perioperative management and reversal of these agents.
 Review the latest clinical trials relevant to the care of patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD), venous thromboembolism (VTE), venous insufficiency, non-atherosclerotic arteriopathies and aortic disease, and recently published basic and translational studies with implications for vascular medicine practice.
