The VIVA Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the field of vascular medicine and intervention to improve patient care through education, research, and raising worldwide awareness of peripheral vascular disease.

Through our CME symposia, clinicians learn about advanced medical, endovascular, and surgical techniques, and bring this information back to their practices to improve patient outcomes. Our commitment to a collaborative, interdisciplinary forum brings together specialists from all areas of vascular healthcare to present balanced and scientifically valid data, explore and debate standards of care in the PVD arena, and demonstrate interventional procedures in live cases from around the world.

Our research and advocacy initiatives are focused on advances in interventional procedures and global management of the toughest patient disorders in the vascular arena. Our Vascular Leaders Forum promotes and fosters open dialogue between key players in the management of patients with vascular disease, including regulatory and reimbursement policy experts, clinical thought leaders, and industry representatives. The 2019 Forum facilitated a balanced, transparent, and comprehensive scientific discussion focused on the use of paclitaxel in devices used to treat peripheral arterial disease, and the next steps needed to confirm the safety of these devices.
