Jose “Pepe” Alvarez, Jr., M.D. Memorial Lecture on Vascular Disease: Endovascular Therapy for Complex Aortic Disease

Miami, FL US
May 8, 2018

Patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are usually treated with endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), which has become the standard of care in many hospitals for patients with suitable anatomy. Overall, the indications for endovascular management of AAA are expanding to include increasingly complex and anatomically challenging aneurysms. Ongoing studies and optimization of imaging, in addition to technological refinement of stent grafts, will hopefully continue to broaden the utilization of EVAR.

Please join us for the Jose “Pepe" Alvarez, Jr., M.D. Memorial Lecture on Vascular Disease: "Endovascular Therapy for Complex Aortic Disease," with guest faculty, Matthew J. Eagleton, M.D.
