Visit us at GEST 2014


At GEST (Global Embolization and Technologies) 2014, prominent physicians will present on topics such as uterine fibroid embolization and pelvic congestion syndrome. GEST is an international congress that brings together premier interventionalists to discuss innovative techniques and advancements in embolization technologies.

Embolization as a treatment for pelvic venous incompetence, also known as pelvic congestion syndrome, is an approach that is gaining acceptance. Drs. Anthony Venbrux and Tony Lopez will share their unique approaches, present case studies, and discuss the importance of the procedure in the field of women’s health at an informative lunch symposium. The GEST lunch symposium—Pelvic Venous Incompetence/Pelvic Congestion Syndrome Embolization: A Procedure Whose Time Has Come?— will be from 12:20 to 1:20 pm on Friday, May 2, in Golden Gate B of the San Francisco Marriott Marquis.
