67th ESCVS

The 67th Congress of the European Society of Cardiovascular and Endovascular Surgery (ESCVS)

The European Society of CardioVascular Surgery (ESCVS) was founded May 31st, 1951, in the city of Turin, Italy, with statutes in Strasbourg, France, under the name of “Société Européenne de Chirurgie CardioVasculaire”. René Leriche was elected as president R. dos Santosas as vice president, G. Arnulf as secretary-general and R. Riveaux as treasurer. The founders and subscribers of these first statutes were 40 physicians representing 11 European countries. The first congress of the society was organized in Strasbourg (oct. 5-6, 1952)


With its monumental cathedral featuring delicate carvings, Strasbourg is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Thanks to the richness and sheer density of its heritage sites, the entire town centre has been listed as UNESCO World Heritage.

Strasbourg is one of only three cities in the world which are home to international institutions without being national capitals. The choice of Strasbourg as the European capital following the Second World War is no accident. The city stands as a shining symbol of reconciliation between peoples and of the future of Europe.

Strasbourg enjoys a central position making it easy to reach other major towns and cities. Just a few hours away by road or less than one hour away by plane from Paris, Lyon and the major German cities, Strasbourg is well served by the motorway, air travel and train network.
