Dear friends of Phlebology!
On behalf of the German Society for Phlebology, I have the honor to invite you to the center of Germany for the 64th Annual Conference of the German Society for Phlebology from September 29th to October 1st, 2022, which will be held in presence and online to reach every corner of the world.
Venous insufficiency is a disease with a highest prevalence and serious consequences such as leg ulcer are of great economic relevance for the solidarity system. The same applies to chronic lymphedema and deep vein thrombosis and its sequelae, which often require long-term therapy.
There are many therapeutic approaches from
▪ wait and see
▪ conservative therapy in form of
– lifestyle corrections
– compression or for all of the chronic diseases we treat.
▪ “invasive” therapy with venous sparing or eradication strategies, using the following techniques:
– endoluminal heat or chemical treatment – stenting
How to choose the right one from the options for these patients? Accor- ding to the socio-cultural environment, the skills of the doctor and the wishes of the patients? Choosing wisely means “Make smart decisions together”.
In addition to the main lectures, ultrasound courses for the superficial and deep leg veins, workshops on sclerotherapy and endoluminal treatment,
as well as surgical techniques are offered. There will be joint meetings with German Vascular Surgery Societies, as well as with the French, the Polish and the Egyptian Societies of Phlebology.
Important international and national faculty is a guarantee for high level education and science sessions, as well as good discussions. The congress will be translated into English simultaneously on Friday and Saturday. Two rooms are also streamed online for an international audience.
In order to sharpen international attention, we will carry out “Pre- Congress Activities” together with professional societies from Australia, Poland, France, Russia, Egypt, Argentina and the USA in the months lea- ding up to the conference, in which international guests can participate free of charge to get to our conference.
With the aim of attracting many international “on-site” participants from abroad, we offer grants of 500 euros for PhD students or trainees in phlebology from abroad. You can use this to finance the participation fee and the gala dinner.
The Hannover Congress Center is located in the middle of the city and still in the countryside, at the zoo and near interesting places where the exchange can continue in the evenings. Logistically, Hannover is a well- known and proven trade fair city with an airport and a wide railway connection. Ancient places, modern buildings, parks invite you to stay and enjoy.
It would be my greatest pleasure to meet you personally here in Hannover!
