Chairman welcome:

 

On behalf of the organising committee, I am pleased to welcome you to our 2nd SEHA Vascular Conference.  The focus of the meeting is to raise awareness of vascular disease that if left undiagnosed and untreated can lead to amputations and loss of life.  Delays in making the right diagnosis costs lives and those who survive but fail to receive the correct management are at risk of having a major lower limb amputation.  These vascular emergencies present in many ways with some presentations such as gangrene and bleeding being very obvious but other presentations like carotid disease and aortic aneurysms needing more awareness. 

 

Our 2 day Conference will include state of the art lectures from a multidisciplinary team of doctors who manage complex vascular emergencies.  They will highlight the pitfalls in the assessment, diagnosis and management of complex vascular presentations related to: Vascular trauma, Critical Limb Ischaemia, Complicated skin and soft tissue infections, diabetic foot sepsis and Aortic, Carotid and mesenteric artery disease.

 

I look forward to seeing many of you at the meeting and sharing our experience of these critical conditions that often go undiagnosed until its too late.
