 Call for Late-Breaking Clinical Trials



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®.

Please be sure to include the following sections and responses to the questions with the submission.
