Oral Presentations: 4

Poster Competition: 8

Interactive Poster: 8

The SVS Vascular Annual meeting is an extremely competitive and premier educational meeting designated for the vascular surgery specialty. The meeting took place over four days in National Harbor, Maryland, where UCSD had a profound presence led by Dr. Mahmoud B. Malas. 20 total abstracts were accepted, and UCSD leads to be the number one institution in the world for total number of accepted scientific abstracts at the society meeting for three consecutive years.
