The theme of ASVS 2017 is “Mentoring the Modern Vascular Surgeon”. This theme may conjure up images of: innovations, simulation labs, new skill sets, self-improvement, new vascular syllabus or opportunity in research. Whatever image strikes you and whatever position you are in: consultant or trainee, clinician or supporting staff, industry player or medical staff, this conference has the potential to inform and transform.
Besides the didactic lectures, debates, symposia and free papers, we have numerous workshops by multidisciplinary experts to hone your skills- from complex TEVAR to outpatient management of varicose veins, from endovascular technique to ultrasonographic skills, and many more.
There will be a wide array of new products with industry proctors to help you better accomplish the everyday tasks.
Above all, there are many places of beauty and excitement to entice you and the family-from the white sandy beaches of west Malaysia to the rolling hills and dense tropical forests of Sabah and Sarawak, not forgetting the dazzling variety of food and the crazy shopping. I welcome you to 18th ASVS 2017 in Kuala Lumpur.
