International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies
The International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) is a multidisciplinary international society of physicians, scientists, and health care providers united by an interest in vascular anomalies. The Society aims to promote the highest standards of care for patients with vascular anomalies by advancing clinical and scientific knowledge concerning causes, diagnosis and treatment, and by education of physicians, health care providers, patients and the community. The Society encourages the free flow of information between its members and interested groups, through workshop meetings and teaching programs, and by the dissemination of a classification scheme and pertinent scientific data.
ISSVA was officially founded in 1992, two years after its first International Workshop held in 1990 in Amsterdam. Today, the ISSVA workshops gather hundreds of international specialists of various medical disciplines involved in the treatment of patients afflicted with vascular anomalies.
