The SVS Program Committee is calling for abstracts of late-breaking clinical trials for the 2013 Vascular Annual Meeting®, May 30 - June 1 in San Francisco, CA. Submissions will be presented at a plenary session on Saturday, June 1 from 2:05 pm - 3:00 pm. Preference will be given to prospective multi-institutional trials, the content of which will not have been published by any journal by the 2012 Vascular Annual Meeting. Since the concept is to provide Vascular Annual Meeting attendees with “late-breaking” trial data, retrospective analyses will not be considered. Publication is encouraged, but not required in the Journal of Vascular Surgery®.
An abstract must be submitted by March 15, 2013. Abstracts may have up to a maximum of 2,000 characters. Please be sure to include the following sections and responses to the questions with the submission. The title, authors, affiliations, and answers to the two questions are not included in the overall character limit. You are allowed a maximum of one table, figure, graph, or image.
5. Professional Practice Gap:
What quality gap (limitation or problem) with the practice of vascular surgery does this research address?
6. Knowledge and/or Strategies:
In what way might the results of this project supplement or inform our clinical or research knowledge or strategies?
Submissions of the abstract and financial disclosures can be sent via email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can access the disclosure form by visiting the following link: Disclosure Form. Please note that submissions without completed disclosure forms from all the authors will not be considered.
