2 - 4 December 2021 Sydney Australia

The VERVE Symposium in conjunction with LINC Australia program will incorporate a world renowned international faculty, with live cases from the University Hospital in Leipzig, Prince of Wales Private Hospital Sydney and the Mater Hospital Sydney. We are introducing a call for abstracts in the categories of original scientific research and challenging cases with a chance for individuals to join the faculty for a podium or e-poster presentation, providing endovascular techniques, peripheral, carotid, aortic and late breaking trial data and the opportunity for individuals to present their research.
