There is an enormous gap between actual practice and the current state of knowledge. This gap is filled imperfectly with material in books and published articles. These sources are also often negatively influenced by the biases of authors, reviewers and editors. VEITHsymposium attempts to fill this gap more perfectly and more currently by enlisting speakers with up-to-date information and data, and also those on both sides of controversial issues. In this way, attendees gets a current view of the state-of-the-art in vascular disease management as of the date of the meeting.

ATTENDANCE: Vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, interventional cardiologists, and other allied health specialists who manage patients with diseases of the arteries and veins will attend throughout the United States and abroad.

Frank J. Veith, M.D., professor of surgery Cleveland Clinic (Cleveland, OH) and New York University (NY, NY) serves as chairman of the VEITHsymposium. Dr. Veith said, “Vascular disease remains a major concern here in the United States and throughout the global community. Vascular disease affects a large percentage of people over the age of 50. We are seeing more diabetic patients and those who present with venous disease, including risk of losing limbs. VEITHsymposium empowers practicing vascular specialists the opportunity to hear expert opinions on new and current medical devices, pharmacological treatments, open and endovascular interventions. Knowledge is power and the more knowledge we can afford practicing specialists; we can achieve better patient outcomes.”

Clinical research and trials will be presented. Panel sessions provides attendees the opportunities to render their own opinions, challenge presenters and ask questions.
