6th Phlebology Symposium

Vascular Diseases and their Treatment in Interdisciplinary Contexts

27.11.2021 - Berlin, Germany

Dear colleagues, 
Dear friends of phlebology!

Phlebology involves a broad, interdisciplinary spectrum of medical professionals. General practitioners, angiologists, dermatologists, orthopaedists, surgeons, internists, gynaecologists and, last but not least, family doctors: all are consulted by a large number of patients with phlebological diseases. Increasing life expectancy and the corresponding growth in the more elderly section of the population will also lead to a rise in the number of patients with phlebological complaints.

This is the context for our sixth Phlebological Symposium, which we see as an opportunity to take an interdisciplinary approach, and in so doing, shed light on various phlebological conditions and the ways in which they are treated across different medical disciplines. We will also focus on swelling of the legs. Lectures on the diagnosis and treatment of infected wounds and on important aspects of compression therapy will round off the day.

This symposium is not just aimed at doctors working in (or with an interest in) phlebology, however; wound experts, medical staff, therapists and care specialists in the medical retail industry will also benefit from the lectures, discussions and demonstrations.

We would therefore like to cordially invite you to take part, and are looking forward to a lively exchange of thoughts!


Best wishes 

Yours faithfully 
Prof. Dr. med. Markus Stücker
