I have appreciated the zeal and vigour of Dr N N Khanna in organising the APVIC V, which was a very successful meeting, with good scientific content and participation by delegates.
My compliments and best wishes to the organisers.
APVIC V was an exceptionally well organized Meeting. The course content was very well structured; the presentations of eminent National & International Faculty were world class.
The inception of APVIC was with the motive of bringing the endovascular physicians in Asia Pacific region in tandem and at par with the international expertise today. Bringing together, the leaders and experts in the field of endovascular interventions in order to highlight the progress in Endovascular science in the management of even the most complicated stages of Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) and spanning vessels all across the body effectively and efficiently have been missions of APVIC.
