Asian Distal Bypass Workshop


Announcement of Distal Bypass Workshop in Asia (DBWA) !

Dear Colleagues and Vascular Surgeons in Asia,

Japanese Society for Vascular Surgeons (JSVS) would like to announce you the first Distal Bypass Workshop in Asia (DBWA). 

JSVS has decided to take place the first DBWA just after the 47th annual meeting of JSVS. Detailed information with preliminary program is described below.

The latest guidelines strongly recommend distal bypass for infrapoplitealarterial lesions, whereas vascular surgeons can perform or educate distal bypass is now decreasing in Asia. In Japan, JSVS is organizing DBW every year and more than 170 young cardiovascular surgeons have been trained through DBW so far. JSVS would like to utilize these experiences and knowhow to contribute to Asian vascular surgeons

JSVS is pleased to invite some of vascular surgeons, who is very much interested in distal bypass surgery, from each Asian country. JSVS council members will greatly appreciate if the Society of your country recommend and send 2 or 3 vascular surgeons to DBWA 2019. 

JSVS members would like to welcome many Asian vascular surgeons to attend this DBWA, and hopefully the success of the first DBWA will motivate us to continue this DBWA as annual events, which may provide opportunities to know each other and exchange ideas among Asian vascular surgeons.
