It has a strong tradition of merging specialties to provide better care for patients.

During the event high-standard thematic keynotes and free presentations are combined with posters and a commercial exhibition in a concise area and sociable atmosphere in Groningen, the City of Talent! The Congress is intended for (members and non-members of the ESCVS) surgeons, interventional radiologists, cardiologists, perfusionists, medical technicians, trainees, nurses and all other physicians and researchers interested in the field of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery. Well-known experts, from all over the world, will present their latest developments in this field.
