  • Emphasis on Hands-on Learning: The success of vascular treatments and interventions relies heavily on practical, hands-on experience gained through workshops and real-world applications, beyond just theoretical knowledge.
  • Interdisciplinary Collaboration: The integration of expertise from various medical disciplines, including surgeons, physicians, nurses, and technologists, is essential for advancing patient outcomes and fostering innovative treatment strategies.
  • Education and Skill Enhancement: The EVC serves as a pivotal platform for medical professionals at all stages of their careers to enhance their skills, learn from leading experts, and stay abreast of the latest advancements in the vascular field.
  • Patient-Centric Approach: The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life for patients by adopting a patient-centric approach that addresses not only the physical aspects of vascular diseases but also the psychological impacts, ensuring holistic care.
  • Future Directions: The discussions highlight the importance of ongoing research, technological advancements, and continued professional development to meet the evolving challenges in vascular medicine and surgery
  • Early Intervention and Comprehensive Examination: The importance of early intervention in venous disorders, utilizing a comprehensive examination that includes clinical evaluation, anatomical study, and assessment of venous valvular hemodynamics.
  • Multidisciplinary Approach: Emphasizing the need for a multidisciplinary approach involving various specialists such as nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, and nutritionists to ensure a holistic treatment plan covering diet, compression, and surgery when necessary.
  • Ultrasound as a Primary Diagnostic Tool: Highlighting ultrasound as the first line of non-invasive testing for patients with venous leg ulcers, providing valuable insights into the source of reflux and disease.
  • Importance of Perforators and Hemodynamics: Cautioning against solely blaming perforators for venous disease and stressing the need to understand hemodynamics and the anatomy of venous disorders for effective treatment.
  • Sclerotherapy in Ulcer Treatment: Discussing the role of sclerotherapy in treating varicose veins and its application in managing venous leg ulcers, including the treatment of trunkal veins, perforators, and feeder veins within the ulcer bed.
  • Compression Therapy: The significance of compression therapy in the management of venous leg ulcers, including the use of specialized compression systems for improving healing rates and reducing pain and edema associated with venous leg ulcers.
  • Patient Education and Customized Treatment: The necessity of patient education on the nature of their condition and the customization of treatment plans to suit individual needs, considering factors like leg size, shape, and specific contraindications to certain treatments.
