registerProgramme and creditpoints
Dear Colleagues,

In Northern Europe many venous centers have created or used phlebological new techniques. A majority of conferences focusing on Phlebology topics are frequently located in the South, West and central Europe. In northern Europe „Endovenous“ practice takes also place in Malmoe, Bergen, Copenhagen, Luebeck, Rostock and Baltics leading us to create an international Northern European Endovenous Forum (NEEF). As we are located nearby Eastern Europe countries as Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and others, we will provide the Forum translation in two languages – Russian and English.

An attractive Forum asks for an attractive city! This year’s NEEF special event will take place in charming Riga – capital of Latvia. Once called the “Paris of the North”, Riga is a vibrant and beautiful city. The charming little streets of Old Riga will leave your heart full of impressions. The city is an architect dream from medieval to gothic to art nouveau.

Our vision this year is to organize sponsors influence free venous forum – so it could be interesting for both - phlebologists and vascular surgeons and oriented to interractive discussions.

The second Endovenous Forum will be organized by Baltic Vein clinic (more than 20 years of experience in vein treatment) with support from Latvian Medical association, The Latvian Society of Phlebology, Latvian Asscociation of vascular surgeons.

This year program sessions will include various treatments of varicose veins (tips and tricks), deep vein thrombosis treatment, ulcer treatment, difficult cases, advanced treatment, case reports and many more. To interact the audience, we would like to suggest the professionals to send us different interesting study case reports to create a public discussion during the Forum.

Guidelines for case reports – PowerPoint presentations, time limit 5 minutes, send to info@endovenousforum.com till 16th of July, 2019.
