Dear colleagues and friends!
On behalf of the Baltic Society of Phlebology I have the honour to invite you to Riga for the 18th International Master Course of Phlebology, that will take place in Riga from 14 – 15 December, 2018.
The main objective of the Course in question is to review and compare the most recent and progressive thermal and non thermal methods for the treatment of saphenous veins. The focus of the Course will be mainly placed on non thermal ablations methods and it’s comparing with actual golden standard - thermal ablation. Additionally, throughout the Course a significant attention will be devoted for a thorough discussion of the best possible functional and aesthetic result with minimal risk of complications and further side effects by using different techniques.
The Baltic Society of Phlebology are delighted and honoured that the faculty of the 18th International Master Course of Phlebology will be composed of high-level professionals acknowledged all over the world, such as the Prof. Tomasz Urbanek, MD (Poland), Prof. A. Kursat Bozkurt, MD (Turkey), Aleksandra Jaworucka - Kaczorowska, MD (Poland) and Frantisek Zernovicky, MD (Slovakia).
The aforementioned review of the background of the international board of faculty provides the participants with an opportunity to learn about the most successful and up-to-date ablation techniques from the world’s leading physicians specialising in the care of the varicose veins.
The two-day workshop will focus on the latest techniques: non thermal and thermal, as well as provide “tips and tricks” for the successful treatment of vein diseases.
The emphasis will be put on the learning efficiency by forming smaller groups of participants to ensure more opportunities for questions and further discussions.
On behalf of the Baltic Society of Phlebology I am looking forward to seeing you during the 18th International Master Course in Phlebology and welcoming you in Riga.
Prof. Dr. Uldis Maurins, MD
President of the Baltic Society of Phlebology
