1st International Distal Bypass Workshop

July 27 & 28, 2024 @ Tokyo, Japan

This will be an excellent opportunity to learn the surgical skill as well as planning of surgical strategy for long-term durability of revascularization. After BEST CLI era, there is an urgent need to train vascular surgeons who can perform bypass surgery. To provide high quality distal bypass, we need to learn not just the techniques, but the theory and science that serves as the backbone behind the techniques., We encourage all trainees in area of vascular surgery to attend this event.
