Independent Practitioner Today has published an article on the first International Veins Meeting held by The College of Phlebology in London in March 2017. (http://www.independent-practitioner-today.co.uk/)
This veins meeting is special as it is centred on observing live cases on all 3 days of the meeting. Live cases include pelvic vein embolisation under local anaesthetic, endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), steam closure of veins, TRLOP closure of perforators and aesthetic vein treatments on face, hands and body.
Delegates will be able to talk to the operating doctors during the procedures, ensuring that they can fully understand how and why to do each procedure.
There is also a stream each day for the treatment of leg ulcers.
The mantra of this meeting is “learn, watch, understand, ask”. The meeting is suitable for any doctor, nurse or vascular scientist who wants to know more about veins.
There are many internationally recognised doctors who are on the faculty. The live cases will be performed at The Whiteley Clinic in Bond Street London, and beamed directly to the conference venue, with a 2-way link for questions.
