Second Annual Innovation in Vascular Surgery &  Endovascular Therapies Award

Last year’s competition was led by the legendary Dr. Juan Parodi, immediate Past-president of the FJVIS – with more than 60 amazing abstracts submitted from surgeon-scientists from all over the globe.

The competition was fierce and the webinar (where all 5 winners presented their contributions) was one of the most successful webinars in the history of the Society.

A distinguished faculty selected because of their academic contributions and international reputation will judge the abstracts submitted.

Below you will find the details for abstract submission. Please encourage your friends and colleagues to participate in what I believe it is the most prestigious Award in the vascular space.

A new open or endovascular procedure, a new device for vascular surgery or intervention, a significant improvement on an existing vascular device, a new or improved pharmaceutical product or to improve or cure vascular diseases, any advance in artificial intelligence as it relates to the diagnosis or treatment of vascular disease are examples of subjects that the Committee is expecting.
