Welcome to the ISSVA World Congress 2022: The Latest in Vascular Anomalies!

The International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) is committed to providing educational opportunities to the vascular anomalies community, despite the unpredictable world we live in and the ever-changing state of travel. We plan to hold an in-person Congress in 2022 in Vancouver, Canada and encourage you to save the dates of our meeting. However, we understand that in May of 2022 we may not be able to welcome all members of the vascular anomalies community to Canada and will do our best to accommodate those individuals who are unable to travel to an in-person meeting.

We will continue to monitor the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, travel restrictions, and other items that fall out of our control, but contribute significantly to the success of this meeting. As external changes occur, our meeting plans and structure will remain flexible to accommodate our delegates who are unable to attend an in-person meeting. We remain committed to working with our partners in Vancouver to find a solution that works for all parties, while maintaining our focus on providing educational opportunities to the vascular anomalies community.

Join us in 2022
