Overview

Vascular Surgery CME from the Experts

A joint effort of the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at UCLA and Society for Vascular Surgery, this online CME program focuses on the major pillars of vascular surgery: conventional open operations, catheter-based intervention (endovascular surgery), the medical aspect of patient management, and diagnostic imaging and noninvasive testing.

 

Comprehensive Review and Update of What’s New in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery lectures cover important recent developments, and roundtable Q&A sessions are ideal for board prep. In recognition of the increasingly important role of endovascular intervention, this CME program also provides an update on endovascular surgery together with relevant case presentations.

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 now 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

At the completion of this program, participants should be better 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 femoralpopliteal-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.
