• 2020 Annual Spring Meeting (VAM)

Next Session:
June 24, 2020 from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

In light of the cancellation of the in-person

2020 SVS Vascular Annual Meeting,

the 2020 VESS Spring Meeting will now be hosted

as a Virtual Program.

The SVS is very excited to announce that the Program Committee has crafted a compelling series of programs built from the best science and education from VAM 2020, and it will be delivered to you via interactive online forums over the summer months. Stay tuned for details regarding the ONLINE (Optimizing Novel Learning in A New Environment) programs. The VESS hopes to develop a number of virtual sessions of its own as well.

The VESS Spring Program Committee has chosen the 12 abstracts listed below to be presented during the June 24th session. The final program outline and timing of each presentation will be posted soon.
