Stay Current and Prep for Vascular Board Exams

This program offers an in-depth review for those preparing to take the vascular board examinations as well as providing a basic didactic education for vascular residents in training. The course recognizes four major pillars of vascular surgery practice: (1) conventional open operations, (2) catheter-based intervention, (3) the medical aspects of patient management, (4) diagnostic imaging and noninvasive testing. An internationally recognized faculty from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA will present a comprehensive survey of generally accepted views, including basic science, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of the broad spectrum of vascular disorders. It will help you to better:

  • Describe the indications, technique and results of open vascular operations including carotid endarterectomy, repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm, aorto-femoral bypass and infra-inguinal bypass
  • Outline the management of varicose veins and deep venous occlusive disease
  • Identify the indications, technique and results of catheter-based interventions including endovascular repair of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm, aorto-iliac and femoral-popliteal-tibial occlusive disease and carotid artery stenting
  • Manage vascular disease including hypertension, risk factor modification, the use of anti-platelet, anti-coagulant and statin therapy
  • Interpret diagnostic studies including duplex ultrasound, magnetic resonance angiography, CT angiography and catheter based contrast angiography

Designation

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this enduring material for a maximum of 29.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Date of Original Release: October 30, 2015
Credit Expiration Date: October 30, 2018

CME credit is obtained upon successful completion of a program post-test. A $30 processing fee must accompany the completed post-test.

Disclosure Statement

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed the program is “truly independent” and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires non-promotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program’s participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.

Learning Objectives

The primary objective of this course is to provide the evidence basis for the clinical practice of vascular disease management.

After viewing this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the indications, technique, and results of the spectrum of open vascular operations including such common procedures as carotid endarterectomy, repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm, aorto-femoral bypass, and infra-inguinal bypass
  • Outline the management of varicose veins and deep venous occlusive disease
  • Identify the indications, technique, and results of the spectrum of catheter based intervention including endovascular repair of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm, aorto-iliac and femoral-popliteal-tibial occlusive disease, and carotid artery stenting
  • Manage vascular disease including treatment of hypertension, risk factor modification, the use of anti-platelet, anti-coagulant, and statin therapy
  • Interpret diagnostic studies including duplex ultrasound, magnetic resonance angiography, CT angiography, and catheter based contrast angiography
