ISSVA Debates & Updates 2023 (Boston)

The International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) is pleased to announce the ISSVA "Debates & Updates" 2023 Meeting. The "Debates & Updates" meeting will consist of lively panel discussions, case reviews and interaction with participants. This meeting was launched virtually in 2021 so we are pleased to invite you to attend our first hybrid (in-person and virtual) "Debates & Updates" meeting.

"Debates & Updates" 2023
Boston, Massachusetts, United States
19-21 April 2023
Hyatt Regency Boston

This will be a highly interactive meeting and we strongly encourage audience participation (from both in-person and virtual attendees). You will listen to experts from multiple specialties and we hope you, our audience members, share your perspectives and opinions on how you would approach challenging situations and compelling cases.

Scientific Program: Call for Cases

We are calling for cases and are asking for your most interesting, complicated, compelling, innovative and interdisciplinary dilemmas and controversies. For all cases that are submitted, we ask that they have a multidisciplinary approach (IR, Surgery, Medical) and you have information outlining how your team decided on the best approach for the case.

We are looking for the conundrums; cases that make our heads hurt; cases that, at first make sense, but something in our investigation did not fit (like a phenotype that did not go along with the genotype found); innovative therapeutic options; disorders that do not have an exact diagnosis, etc.

The cases, preferably, should fit in one of the following categories.

  • Arteriovenous / venous / lymphatic / capillary malformations
  • Complicated lymphatic anomalies (CLA: GLA / KLA / GSD /CCLA)
  • Complicated hemangiomas
  • Rare vascular tumors
  • Cases that mimic vascular anomalies (but are not a vascular anomaly)
  • Complications of medical treatment

Submit Your Case

Call for submissions closes on Friday, 09 December 2022 at 11:59 pm, US Eastern Time.


Registration will open late 2022. Please check back for updates, or join our mailing list by contacting the ISSVA Secretariat at: There will be limited in-person attendance so we encourage you to register quickly after it is opened.
