Virtual meeting

Oct. 29, 2021

About the meeting

Lower Extremity Arterial RevascularizatioN (LEARN) 2021 is a 1-day “deep-dive” course designed for practicing endovascular specialists and fellows currently involved in PAD or interested in starting their own PAD practices. The course focuses on the most current techniques and technical insights for management of the PAD patient, from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up, including examination of claudication and critical limb ischemia (CLI). LEARN delivers a powerful combination of online case-based panel discussions, SA-CME-accredited lectures, simulcast presentations of techniques and devices, and symposia with featured corporate partners. Keep current, fulfill your CME, hone your practice development skills, and network with leading physicians and industry partners—all through one dedicated learning opportunity.

Attendees can expect:

The latest technical advances for treating critical limb ischemia (CLI), including alternative access and closure techniques, atherectomy and anti-proliferative/drug-eluting technology Specialized training to differentiate IRs from others treating PAD, and practice development guidance to help IRs strengthen the economic case for “endovascular first” in the era of value-based care, conversation and networking with leading faculty leaders and industry partners.
