Niten and Maureen then explain how VIVA and VEINS have become more than just meetings. They are conglomerates of multiple initiatives for all things vascular driven by the central question of “What is best for the patient?” The duo also sheds light on the unique inner-workings of VIVA, highlighting the foundation’s speedy, nimble, and inclusive approach to the rapidly advancing landscape of vascular and endovascular surgery.
