First-on-Podium Data from 21 Vascular Interventional Clinical Trials to Be Presented at The VEINS and VIVA 2022

Leading physicians and researchers will present results from 21 clinical trials from Monday, October 31, to Wednesday, November 2, at the annual VIVA and The VEINS conferences at Wynn Las Vegas.

VIVA (Vascular InterVentional Advances) is a vascular education symposium that emphasizes innovation and multidisciplinary learning. The 2022 conference will mark VIVA's 20th anniversary as a premier educational event for endovascular specialists.

The VEINS (Venous Endovascular INterventional Strategies) is a comprehensive education symposium focused on the diagnosis, intervention, and management of venous disorders.

VIVA and The VEINS bring together a global, multispecialty faculty to present a variety of talks and live case presentations from clinical centers around the world. Attendees for both events include an audience of interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, and endovascular medicine specialists.

Media outlets are invited to attend the data presentations in person. The presentations will also be available to all VIVA attendees and invited press through the Virtual VIVA app. Any members of the press planning to attend should contact
