Welcome to ISSVA Debates & Updates Meeting

The International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) is pleased to announce a new meeting in 2021, the first “Debates & Updates” meeting. Our members and past meeting attendees have asked us to offer an educational meeting in the years opposite our Congresses and we are proud to present our “Debates & Updates” meeting, which will be hosted virtually from 13-15 May 2021.

This 3-day online meeting will include talks about genetics, basic research, novel therapies and debates in the evaluation and management of patients with vascular anomalies. Controversial issues and cases will be selected by the ISSVA Meetings Committee in order to create a program that offers our attendees presentations intermingled with challenging cases, followed by a lively, healthy discussion between speakers, moderators and registrants.
