In-person meeting, live surgical cases, interactive lectures, live-in-a-box videos and abstract presentations
The programme will feature 4 half day sessions devoted to the major areas of aortic surgery. Each session will feature a live case; invited presentations, 4 live-in-a-box videos and 2 abstract presentations related to each subject.
Each session will be shared with an international scientific cardio-thoracic association: ASCVTS (Asian Society for Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery) for the aortic root; LACES (Latin American Association of Cardiac and Endovascular Surgery) for the ascending aorta and arch; STS (Society of Thoracic Surgeons) for the dissections; and the AATS (American Association for Thoracic Surgery) for the descending aorta.
All cardiac and vascular surgeons, cardiologists, radiologists and anaesthetists are invited to come together and broaden their competence and enjoy learning new skills in the field of major aortic surgery. It is a great opportunity for a full immersion into aortic surgery and is a unique opportunity to meet the most renowned experts in the field, confronting the most controversial aspects of surgical and endovascular therapeutic solutions.
At the end of the meeting attendees will acquire the necessary information for a competent decision-making process when facing a variety of aortic pathologies. Attendees will acquire the necessary skills to improve their performance in standard aortic procedures but will also learn the tips and tricks to approach more difficult and challenging surgical cases.
