Endorsed: FIRVA- 2nd Biennial Forum on Interventional Radiology in Vascular Anomalies

Thursday, September 28 - Saturday, September 30, 2017

FIRVA 2017 is a state-of-the art forum devoted exclusively to addressing the practical needs of the interventional radiologist in the diagnosis and percutaneous management of vascular malformations/anomalies led by some of the field’s leading experts.

Our comprehensive and interactive program includes:

  • An introductory primer on the ISSVA classification of vascular anomalies, imaging diagnosis, and the role of the interventional radiologist in multidisciplinary management.
  • Case-based “How I Do It” sessions on percutaneous management of all the most common vascular anomalies.
  • Debate/consensus-building sessions between faculty on controversial or cutting-edge topics in many areas of vascular anomaly therapy.
  • Case-based tutorials and complication rounds, with case-materials supplied not only from our faculty, but submitted from our attendees as well!

Whether you’re a seasoned vascular anomaly interventionalist looking to learn and share the latest tips or tricks among colleagues, or you’re an interventional radiologist (or nurse or technologist) considering starting a vascular malformation service and want a better understanding of basic principles and interventional radiologic techniques, this forum is for you.
