Vascular disease is a leading cause of disability and death in patients over age 50. Nonvascular intervention, especially in oncology patients, continues to increase in most busy practices. As such, there is a critical need for physicians who manage these patients to receive CME in this area. To address this need, the AIMsymposium will review the latest pharmacologic, radiologic, surgical and endovascular techniques and technologies as well as discuss when these treatments are justified and indicated and when they are not. Updates on clinical trials and opportunities for dialogue with experts in the field will provide insight, along with the latest data on the results of the various treatment modalities.
The Advanced Interventional Management Symposium (AIMsymposiumTM) will be held Monday - Thursday, November 18 - 21, 2013. The scientific sessions, mini-courses, panel discussions and case presentations, presented by a nationally renowned faculty, will provide a concise overview of the most current issues and hands-on experience in new techniques in percutaneous, endovascular and surgical treatment methods. Highlights of the meeting will include hands-on workshops, didactic workshops, cases and joint sessions with the 40th VEITHsymposium.TM There will be special emphasis on interventional oncology, PVD, aneurysms, embolization devices, CCSVI, TIPS, fibroid management, vascular imaging, neurointervention, fibroid management, hemodialysis access and venous interventions.
