From the Desk
We would like to invite you to attend AVATAR 2019, the 8th annual event of The AVATAR Foundation ( Association of Vascular Access & inTerventionAl Renal Physicians ) at The Lalit, New Delhi from 20-21 July, 2019. This program is conducted for past 8 years under the banner of AVATAR Foundation.
This year, Department of Nephrology, SGPGI, Lucknow will host AVATAR 2019 in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, USA; CiDAAP ( Controversies in Dialysis Access Asia Pacific ) & Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi; an educational program for Nephrologists and Renal Physicians. The focus of the program is new innovative approach to enhance knowledge and patients care. The theme of this year’s conference is “Role of Ultrasound in Renal Science“. AVATAR 2019 will also showcase Ultrasound Guided AV Fistula Creation for the first time in India along with other innovative technology displays.
Last year’s program was endorsed and participated by ASDIN, VAS, VASA, ISN, ISHD and national Societies of South East Asian Countries. Further our presentations are included in INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF NEPHROLOGY education program and are visible on their web site. Recently AVATAR 2018 was adjudged as “The Best Educational Value in Dialysis Access” on Twitter ( #NephAVATAR ).
AVATAR is a multidisciplinary association of nephrologists, Vascular Surgeons, Interventional Radiologists, Dialysis Nurses and Technicians, Critical Care experts, Interventional Cardiologists etc. Hemodialysis is impossible without Vascular access, however complex issues related to Dialysis Access at times add to patient’s morbidity. This is why Vascular Access training and research needs exponential understanding and growth. AVATAR 2019 will cover all issues, difficulties & innovations related to vascular access for improving patients outcome. Additionally, AVATAR 2019 will also cover cardio-critical renal issues viz CRS, CHF management devices along with standard septic AKI resolution with sorbent surfaces etc.
Eminent medical experts from across the globe will share their expertise and experience with delegates at AVATAR 2019.
Dear friends, keep the date July 20–21, 2019 free for the 8th AVATAR Annual Meet. SEE YOU IN Delhi !
