VAM Abstract Submissions Being Accepted
For those interested in presenting their research at the premier educational event for vascular health professionals, the SVS abstract submission site is now open. Share research with colleagues and submit an abstract or surgical video to be considered for presentation at the Vascular Annual Meeting, June 5-7 in Boston.
Vascular Specialist Highlights
Keep up with the latest from Vascular Specialist, including:
"That 5% Thing" by Dr. Russell Samson, Medical Editor of Vascular Specialist.
"On a recent flight back from Europe I had a most unsettling but thought provoking experience when I watched the Oscar-winning foreign movie 'Amour.' You may ask why this film had such a profound effect. It was because it aroused an emotion I had submerged for many years - the sense of dread that I might cause severe harm to a patient with my surgery."
