The 2012 VEITHsymposium is in its second day at the New York Hilton in New York. More than 4,000 vascular specialists are here visiting the exhibit hall and participating in sessions on vascular and endovascular therapies. Important topics that attendees and presenters are discussing this year include pulmonary embolism, management of proximal venous obstruction, stroke management, cardiac and thoracic aortic disease, and lower extremity disease and treatment.
The symposium is in its 39th year and is chaired by Frank J. Veith, MD. In October, Vascular Disease Management published an interview with Dr. Veith in which he gave an overview of this year’s symposium.
“There will be many areas that are of interest to people such as the multiple sclerosis controversy or treating venous obstructions in the neck or elsewhere as a remedial cause of MS. We covered this topic last year and this year we’re doing it more intensely,” Veith said. Other important topics he highlighted were endovascular treatment of lower extremity disease, venous disease, and carotid stenting. Read the full interview at “Dr. Frank J. Veith Provides an Overview About the Upcoming 2012 VEITHsymposium.”
