Welcome to the College of Phlebology's 1st International Veins Meeting, held in conjunction with the Leg Ulcer Charity and the Venous Times. The treatment of varicose veins and leg ulcers has become far more interesting over the last two decades, following the advent of venous duplex ultrasonography and then endovenous surgery. Recent advances in pelvic vein embolisation for pelvic congestion syndrome, leg varicose veins and vulval varicose veins further increase the scope of phlebology.
This first International Veins Meeting by the College of Phlebology will showcase live pelvic vein embolisation cases, live endovenous surgery, live duplex scanning both transvaginal and of the leg veins, with the audience able to question the operators directly during the procedures. A second stream will concentrate on the science and developments in venous surgery, including cellular biology, haemodynamics but also going into new techniques and aesthetic vein treatments. A third stream will be run by the Leg Ulcer Charity, concentrating only on leg ulcers, how best to investigate and treat them, and how to differentiate curable from incurable.
Venous Leg Ulcers, once thought to consign the patient to a lifetime of compression, dressings and recurrent ulceration, can now be treated and cured in at least 50% of cases if not more. Not only can curable cases be identified, but this will allow nursing resources to be concentrated on those that are found to be incurable.
The College of Phlebology has become increasingly influential through the discussions on LinkedIn, Facebook and via some of our publications. Similarly, the Leg Ulcer Charity has been gaining interest from patients, with hundreds of patients now having taken advice via email, the first PhD being produced and the first educational events having been performed. The Venous Times has been relaunched and will give an up-to-date view on the venous world including new developments as they happen.
We look forward to welcoming you to joining us in London in March 2017. If you have any questions, wish to submit an abstract to present, are a company wishing to sponsor or just want to know more about the meeting, please contact us through this website. Registration is now open to all delegates.
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
