Dear colleagues and friends,
on behalf of the Baltic Society of Phlebology, I have the honour to welcome you in Riga

“Aesthetic aspects in Treatment of Venous Diseases”.

workshop will be devoted to a combination of different technologies and methods,
covering hot topics from foam sclerotherapy and endovenous ablation, to miniphlebectomy

We are honoured and excited to welcome Professor Zoltan Varady (Germany) - the
inventor of miniphlebectomy method in treatment of varicose veins, who will take part
in this course. More than 50 years ago Professor Varady has developed his method of
treatment for varicose veins that does not leave scars. Each event participant will have
the unique opportunity to learn from him.
I would also like to point out that Attilio Cavezzi (Italy), Vice-President of the International
Union of Phlebology, is joining us as well. In the recent years he has carried out extensive
scientific research in the field of sclerotherapy. He is also the author of numerous
publications on the topic of sclerotherapy. Thus it is my greatest pleasure that he is
participating in this master course.

vascular surgeons interested in treatment of venous diseases.
This is an opportunity to learn the most accurate and up-to-date techniques in treatment
of venous diseases from the world leading physicians in vein care.

therapy of skin veins and miniphlebectomy, as well as “tips and tricks” to treat vein
The emphasis will be on smaller number of participants and more opportunities for
questions and discussions.
