Hilton Head Island, SC

Learn, Discuss, Collaborate

The VAST 2024 Annual Conference, offers several unique interactive learning formats designed to engage the
panel and audience in a high-spirited discussion on contemporaneous vascular issues.
Expert moderators facilitate the panel and audience in a fast-paced and high-intensity discussion.
The audience is the ultimate arbitrator and challenges the panel and speakers to dissect all points and counterpoints of the debate.
Complex Cases & Complications
Key opinion leaders present complex cases and complications that require a deep dive in finding solutions and along the way, are challenged by a panel of key operatives. There are no boundaries to this discussion, as operatives on the sidelines (the audience debate the panel and speakers to
assert their viewpoint).
My Opinion…Take it or, Leave it!
Experience matters! In the session, the operatives stand by their opinion, and have no issues going head-to-head with the panel and the audience that might disagree.
Morbidity & Mortality
This morbidity and mortality session is designed for the operatives to take a deep dive and get us to a place that is immersed in complications and require innovative strategies to save the day. The operatives have been forewarned to come well prepared as they are sure to be challenged by thepanel that has been there and done that.
Deep Dive: Fellows & Residents Competition
This is where the rubber hits the road and vascular trainees have the opportunity to present innovative cases, novel techniques, or original research to a panel of experts whose job is to challenge and judge the presenters.
The Vascular Roundtable®
Each year we focus a roundtable discussion on controversial topics that profoundly affect our ability to deliver the highest quality Vascular Care.
Industry Symposiums
This is when our industry partners have the opportunity to showcase projects in their pipeline stage and focus
discussion on emerging vascular technology.
