About this event

  • Date and time Wed 26 Jun 2019 from 10:00am to 4:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Vascular Medicine & Lipids

This meeting will cover medical causes of Raynaud’s and digital ischaemic lesions, offering delegates a practical approach to the assessment and management of such patients.

Bringing together internationally renowned experts with an interest in Raynaud’s, it will cover all aspects of the disease from pathogenesis to epidemiology, investigating approaches and management.

There will be a strong clinical emphasis (with case reports) to ensure delegates leave with practical tools for assessing and managing Raynaud’s phenomenon, and digital ischaemic lesions in their own practice.

The meeting will be of interest to clinicians (primary care physicians, medical physicians, surgeons and allied health professionals), who encounter patients with peripheral microvascular disease and scientists with an interest in vascular biology and disease. Rheumatology practitioners who are regularly referred such patients from primary care will also find this meeting very useful.

Topics include:

  • The pathogenesis, epidemiology and classification of primary and secondary forms of Raynaud’s phenomenon (and the occurrence of digital ischaemic lesions)
  • Practical approaches to the assessment and management of Raynaud’s phenomenon and digital microvascular ischaemic lesions
