The International Vein Congress (IVC) was created 13 years ago to educate professionals in the management of venous disease using these new devices. At the recent 12th Annual IVC held in South Beach we saw 700 registrants from 26 countries around the globe converge in Miami, eager to receive intensive education in the management of venous disorders. Because 3-4 days of intensive education no longer does the venous field justice, VeinGlobal was created for additional online education 365 days a year.
