Live video presentations, panel discussions and frequently asked question sessions will focus on controversial issues of vascular and heart diseases.
The world congress 2017 will address all urgent issues from surgical, percutaneous and conservative therapy options, peripheral vasculopathies, to coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular diseases, as well as aortic aneurysms.
Join your colleagues from around the world and explore key areas rapidly expanding in cardiovascular medicine and surgery. This congress is designed to provide a unique blend of disciplines and meet the specific educational needs of medical professionals involved with the management and treatment of cardiovascular diseases as they are encountered by primary care physicians, vascular, general, thoracic and cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists, interventional radiologists, neuroradiologists, fellows and residents, vascular biologists and their staff, nurses and allied healthcare personnel.
The objective of this congress is to offer a serious academic forum to those physicians and allied healthcare personnel interested in research, education and clinical investigation in the field of cardiovascular and vascular diseases. Special emphasis will be placed upon evolving trends, therapies and minimally invasive treatment.
We encourage all of our colleagues to participate in this educational program.
