SVS Presents...What Do the BEST-CLI Results Mean for the Vascular Surgery Community?



March 9 – April 12, 2023
Virtual Event


Recently, the results from the Best Endovascular vs. Best Surgical Therapy in Patients with Critical Limb Ischemia (BEST-CLI) trial were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The research aimed to figure out the best treatment for patients with PAD associated with CLI. With the data being released, the trial has become a hot topic in the vascular surgery community. Join us on Apr. 12 at 7 p.m. CT for a webcast that will dive into what the BEST-CLI results mean for vascular surgeons. Trial principal investigators, Alik Farber, MD and Matthew Menard, MD will present data, engage in a discussion with the esteemed panel and take questions from the audience.
