3rd World AVM Congress

October 24-26, 2016     |     Napa, California





Dear Colleagues,


It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 3rd World AVM Congress, which will take pleace in Napa, California on 24-26 October, 2016. Following the tremendous success of the first two congress meetings, we hope to continue this important and unique meeting that focuses on one of the most challenging set of cerebrovascular conditions in medicine. It is also a meeting that will gather experts from all disciplines involved in the care of such patients and from all over the world.


We have organized what we feel is an extremely interesting and stimulating scientific program that will discuss the latest basic and clinical scientific achievements, as well as discussing many of the controversial topics in AVM research and patient care.


We are also excited to hold the meeting at the Napa Silverado Resort, approximately an hour’s drive North of San Francisco. It is our hope that this beautiful and intimate setting will foster even greater partnership and understanding among the different specialists as well as building both old and new friendships. Please also make the most of your visit to discover the splendid environs and activities that Napa Valley and the Bay Area have to offer.


We look forward to your submission of abstracts, which will be an important means of communicating the latest results and ideas on this topic to the whole AVM community. We’d also like to welcome in particular our international colleagues from all continents as we are sure that our closer collaborations will bring tremendous benefits to our patients


With best wishes and looking forward to seeing you in Napa.
