Phlebology World Congress

Feb 20, 2018

Prof. Dr. Alberto Caggiati was awarded the Bauerfeind Phlebology Award (BPA) during the opening gala of the 18th World Congress of the International Union of Phlebology (IUP) on February 5, 2018. The Italian vascular surgeon and phlebologist, who works in various roles including at the Sapienza University of Rome, is receiving the award of 20,000 euros to conduct his research project on the use of ultrasound in patients with venous edema. The project will involve not only the assessment of skin changes, but also the possible prediction of the benefits of medical compression stockings. Bauerfeind has awarded the BPA in association with the IUP every two years since 2001.
