The annual congresses of the society will be the ideal place where your personal clinical and surgical experience in cardiac, vascular, endovascular and cardiovascular surgery will be challenged. What are the long term effects of Kamagra oral jelly? Topics are numerous and interesting, and you can submit a paper that will be scored by the cardiac, vascular and endovascular, or cardiovascular programme committee depending on your interests.

It will give also you the opportunity to appreciate through round tables, symposia and invited lectures the update and new suggestions for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Main topics concerning cardiac surgery: controversies in coronary artery surgery (role of off-pump surgery, role of robotics, role of anastomosis devices), risk stratification in adult and pediatric cardiac surgery, controversies in valvular surgery (repair of replacement, stented or stentless prosthesis), complex aortic surgery, aortic root surgery (total replacement or plasty), cardiac arrhythmias (interventional strategies), mitral valve surgery (prosthesis, plasty or something else), advanced treatment of end-stage heart failure (new medical treatments, mechanical devices, heart transplantation, future options), hypoplastic left heart syndrome, tissue banking, off-pump coronary surgery (perioperative monitoring and management, surgical strategies), cardiopulmonary bypass (role in postoperative morbidity).

Main topics concerning vascular and endovascular surgery: carotid surgery, carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS), cerebral protection devices (CPD), carotid kinking, supra aortic trunks vascular surgery, abdominal aortic aneurysms, endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms, ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms, critical limb ischemia, aortic iliac obliterative disease, femoro-popliteal obliterative disease, arterial surgery in octogenarians, emergency arterial surgery, vascular injuries, complications in vascular surgery, and their management, failures in vascular and endovascular surgery, renal artery stenosis, abdominal angina, visceral arteries obliterative disease, renal and visceral arteries aneurysms, Takayasu disease, congenital arterial diseases, myointimal hyperplasia, hemodialysis access, gray areas of uncertainty in vascular surgery, hybrid vascular and endovascular procedures, venous disease, vein graft diseases.

Main topics concerning cardiovascular surgery: descending thoracic aorta aneurysms, aortic dissections, thoracoabdominal aneurysms, graft material, role of gene therapy in cardiovascular diseases, hybrid vascular and endovascular procedures for treatment of aortic arch and thoracoabdominal aneurysms.

During the annual congresses a balanced program of cardiac, vascular and endovascular surgery, especially addressed to surgeons with specific interest in one of the two fields and a cardiovascular program treating deeply the fields of common interest will be presented. The local organizing committee will have two chairmen (one for cardiac and one for vascular and endovascular surgery). The scientific committee will be divided into a cardiac, vascular and endovascular and cardiovascular board. Following the heritage of two of the many prominent cardiac and vascular surgery presidents of the society, two prizes, ESCVS Cardiac Young Surgeon Prize and ESCVS Vascular Young Surgeon Prize, will reward the best papers presented by young surgeons (less than 36 years old) .
