Welcome to ESCVS 2018 (Strasbourg)


Organiser's Welcome

Dear Colleagues, Friends and Guests,

We are delighted to invite you to Strasbourg for the 67th Congress of the European Society of Cardiovascular and Endovascular Surgery (ESCVS).
The ESCVS is the oldest society in Europe in the cardiac and vascular surgical field and was founded by René Leriche and R. Dos Santos in 1950. It has a strong tradition of merging specialties to provide better care for patients. The Society is actively engaged in projects involving its young members, to train them and give them the experience and knowledge of new techniques and materials.

In 2018 we will be returning to Strasbourg, where the first conference of ESCVS was held. Strasbourg’s history is steeped in 2000 years of international encounters, thanks to its location in the heart of Europe. The city of Strasbourg was the seat of some of the most important planning for European post-war reconstruction and it is now home to several EU institutions, including the European Parliament, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights.

We look forward to welcome you in Strasbourg!
