Endovascular Forum and GEST Set Out on a Shared Venture to Bring the Highest Level of Embolization-based Scientific and Technical Education, Results, and Relevance for Patient Care

BOSTON, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Endovascular Forum (EVF), an IC Sciences company, announces today a new partnership with the Global Embolization Symposium and Technologies (GEST), and the launch of a dynamic online case-based interactive forum.

This endeavor is in line with the GEST mission and aim of bringing practitioners the highest level of scientific and technical education about the use of new materials and devices, their results, relevance for patient care, imaging, and to fine tune existing skills and expertise in these areas in the most innovative and dynamic method possible.

"This partnership between GEST, the world's leader in innovative and comprehensive forum for embolization science and education, and the Endovascular Forum, the premier innovative online community for endovascular physicians, is a beautiful match," said Dr. Ziv Haskal, one of the three co-founders of GEST. "We are very excited about linking our community with the far reach and vision of the EVF."

Embolization is one of the few areas in endovascular therapy that draws together all practitioners, regardless of their individual subspecialty practices. Obviously, for the interventional oncologist, embolization is the sine qua non. However, embolization spans peripheral vascular disease, trauma, visceral artery and venous interventions, pediatric and neurointerventional therapies, women's health, aortic disease, vascular malformations, gastrointestinal bleeding, liver disease, non-vascular procedures, cell-based therapies, etc.

In turn embolotherapy has become a central part of daily Interventional Radiology work. Embolization indications have substantially increased over the last decade and continue to do so. Fibroid embolization, trauma, and GI-hemorrhage are only a few areas manifesting this fast increase. Additionally, treatment of vascular malformations is fully dependent on embolization techniques. Oncology treatment with drug-eluting and target-specific beads is another fast-growing field of embolization indication.

"We are excited to count GEST as our most recent partner in the further development of the Endovascular Forum's clinical exchange platform," said Rony Sellam, Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer for IC Sciences. "The course directors' bold vision for applied learning and international diversity of perspectives is squarely aligned with the Forum's strengths and aspirations as we become the online destination of choice for cardiovascular and endovascular specialists worldwide."

The EVF and GEST collaboration will further continue to advance embolization knowledge and practice. This is a shared venture where an educational meeting and web-based forum combine to ensure that no part of this ever growing and developing discipline is left untouched.
