Come join us once again in Vancouver October 17th to 19th, 2019 for the opportunity to participate in a
state-of-the art interactive forum focused on imaging diagnosis and interventional radiologic management of vascular malformations/anomalies led by some of the field’s leading experts. The third biennial Forum follows up on the immensely successful FIRVA 2017 which was by far the largest and best attended meeting devoted exclusively to addressing the practical needs of the interventional radiologist in vascular anomalies.

Within the dramatic and inspiring Asia Pacific Hall at the Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue, the next Forum will take place in a setting uniquely suited to FIRVA’s mission of interactive learning. This signature plenary space features five concentric rings of comfortable seating for up to 150 participants creating an open environment that facilitates interaction, communication, and exchange of ideas between participants enhanced by state-of-the-art information technologies supporting presentation and dialogue.

Using “How I Do It” sessions, faculty and attendee-provided case-based discussion, debates, and didactic instruction, our internationally recognized Faculty will guide the attendee through some of the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on workup and percutaneous management of vascular malformations/anomalies available.

Whether you’re a seasoned vascular anomaly interventionalist looking to learn and share the latest tips or tricks among colleagues, or whether you’re thinking of developing a vascular malformation service and want a better understanding of basic principles and interventional radiologic techniques, this forum is for you.

Information on registration, accommodation, and the preliminary program will soon be posted at where you can also find information on our past meetings and programs. You can also check us out on Twitter @FIRVAmeeting

Along with my co-chair Dr. Richard Owen, we hope to see you in Vancouver!
