									CVC   The Chicago EndoVascular Conference
      July 28-30, 2011
      Swissôtel Chicago
      Chicago, Illinois
                               PRELIMINARY PROGRAM
The evaluation and management of peripheral vascular disease continues to evolve at a
rapid pace. Learning the skills required to navigate this complicated clinical landscape is a
challenge best met through a combination of case procedures, observations, self-directed
education, and didactic learning.

The Chicago EndoVascular Conference (CVC) incorporates a community-focused platform
that promotes greater depth into the examination of regional barriers in the diagnosis,
intervention, and follow-up of patients with peripheral arterial, carotid, venous, and aortic
aneurysmal diseases. Problem solving at the local level affords the opportunity to provide
responsive solutions by engaging specialists, healthcare teams, and industry in
collaborative decision-making. Topics include treatment of AAA, infrainguinal
peripheral arterial disease, limb salvage, and complex percutaneous revascularization,
among others. This inaugural program will feature live case broadcasts from local
and nationally renowned institutions as well as debates on hot topics. The meeting
also strives to truly address the performance and competence of the everyday
physician in order to realize improvements in patient outcomes.
