Venous disorders: prevention, treatment and phlebological controversies
24.11.2018 - Munich (Germany)
Phlebology has always been subject to new developments and thus controversies. As a result, in compression therapy, former contraindications become indications and new application areas in terms of non-phlebologic indications, especially prophylactics, evolve.
The 3rd International Phlebology Symposium, which was organized by Juzo, presented a variety of therapeutic options like conservative, endoluminal and surgical procedures in rare and pronounced findings (e.g. angiodysplasies).
Another focus was the conservative therapy of patients suffering from chronic wounds as well as the options and limits of patients’ self-management, visualized by practical demonstrations.
The scientific director Prof. Dr. med. Anke Strölin, head physician at the university hospital Tübingen, was pleased to welcome around 250 participants from 8 countries. The symposium not only targeted physicians operating in phlebology, but also wound experts, therapists and medical supply specialists.
In the course of the symposium, Prof. Dr. med. Anke Strölin received a donation check of EUR 5,000, which was donated by Juzo to the development association for children suffering from cancer.
As the feedback from participants and speakers was utterly positive, there will be another International Phlebology Symposium next year, taking place on 16th November 2019 in Berlin. For more information, please contact Ms. Dace Zanker (phone: +49 (0)8251 901 406, e-mail email@example.com).
