CX Venous Workshop

Wednesday 29 April and Thursday 30 April – Gallery (Upper level)

Course directors: Ian Franklin, Alun Davies, Mark Whiteley and Stephen Black

The former CX Office-Based Vein Practice Course has changed its name to the CX Venous Workshop because it now encompasses all aspects of venous disease including deep vein thrombosis, intravascular ultrasound and deep vein stenting. The course will continue providing delegates with hands-on training sessions for varicose veins treatment. In 2014, it had a record attendance of over 700 delegates during two days.

The CX Venous Workshop is set out in a very flexible format and will run from 10am until 3pm over two days ‒ Wednesday 29 April will be primarily focused on superficial venous treatment and deep venous treatment will be included on Thursday 30 April with deep venous reconstruction considerations and catheter directed thrombolysis and thrombectomy techniques. Techniques for endovenous ablation will be showcased on both days. There will be different training stations (around 30) led by a physician expert who will be demonstrating a wide range of techniques and procedures. There is not a rigid timetable and participants can choose their timing at their convenience. The course facilitates one-to-one interaction or discussions in small groups.
