This course will be directed at individuals of every level of experience in laser treatment of vascular anomalies and leg veins.  It is designed for dermatologists, plastic surgeons, vascular surgeons and all physicians currently performing cutaneous laser surgery or treating vascular abnormalities.  Registrants should have a working knowledge of the physics of lasers and laser-tissue interactions, laser safety as well as the practical use of lasers in cutaneous diseases.  The course is designed to enhance the participant’s understanding of lasers and non-coherent light sources in the treatment of vascular abnormalities and leg veins.  Topics on vascular lesions and leg veins will be discussed in order to give the participants a basis of understanding of the use of lasers and light sources in this field and also practical treatment information.   At the conclusion of this course, participants should:  1) understand the principles behind the use of vascular laser systems; 2) be aware of a variety of optional therapies for treating vascular abnormalities; 3) have better insight into appropriate patient selection for laser treatment of vascular abnormalities and leg veins, and 4) know the potential complications in the treatment of vascular abnormalities and leg veins.
