Rydges Hotel Wellington, 75 Featherston Street, Pipitea, Wellington 6011

The Australasian Vascular Anomalies Network was founded four years ago after the successful ISSVA meeting in Melbourne. The field of vascular anomalies is changing rapidly with new discoveries in the genetics of vascular malformations and new therapies on the horizon.

Knowing that not everybody is able to get to the ISVVA meetings, and AVAN is a mechanism for local clinicians to catch up on what is new and share ideas and experiences, Swee Tan and Fiona Smithers have volunteered to host what will be our most professional meeting yet. This will be a chance to share challenging cases, begin new collaborations and develop opportunities to gain access to the latest treatments for our patients.
