Stay Current on the Latest Advances

Comprehensive Review and Update of What’s New in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery is an extensive review of vital topics in vascular surgery. This CME course focuses on four major pillars of vascular surgery—conventional open operations, catheter based intervention, the medical aspect of patient management, diagnostic imaging and noninvasive testing. It will help you to:

  • Define indications, technique, and results of open vascular operations including carotid endarterectomy, repair of AAA, aorto-femoral bypass, and infra-inguinal bypass
  • Illustrate adept management of varicose veins and deep venous occlusive disease
  • Describe indications, technique, and results 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
  • Modify management of vascular diseases including hypertension, risk factor modification, the use of anti-platelet, anti-coagulant, and statin therapy
  • Accurately interpret diagnostic studies including duplex ultrasound, magnetic resonance angiography, CT angiography, and catheter based contrast angiography

Expand Your Skills

Available online or via audio MP3 CDs, Comprehensive Review and Update of What’s New in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery provides a maximum of 25.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and access to unbiased, evidence-based content and case-based reviews so you can expand your knowledge and incorporate the latest guidelines into your daily practice.

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 that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that 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 mandates that the sponsor adequately manage all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We, at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.

Disclosure information for all individuals in control of the content of the activity is located on the disclosure statement in the PDF and printed syllabus.

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

Intended Audience

This educational activity was planned for practicing vascular surgeons and vascular surgery residents, who wish to review their specialty and update their knowledge of new topics in this rapidly expanding field.
