- Establish the rationale for clinical decisions
- Update knowledge on recent developments in diagnosis and management of venous disease.
- Explore challenging and controversial issues.
VenSAP is appropriate for any practitioner, resident or fellow involved in the medical and interventional management of patients with venous disease.
