Dear colleagues and friends!
Following the success of our first Aortic Summit in 2019, we are pleased to be back for our 2nd edition!
Our theme for 2021 is:
BEYOND THE AORTIC ARCH: FOCUS THORACOABDOMINAL AORTA
Understanding the disease forms the basis, being familiar with the treatment options available enlarges the armamentarium, and being able to implement them into clinical practice provides the freedom and the flexibility to offer sustainable personalized solutions to treat patients with acute and chronic thoracic aortic pathology in an aortic team.
While it is the mission of the Aortic Association to reduce the burden of aortic disease by education, training and advancing knowledge, taking the entire organ aorta into account, we will focus on acute and chronic thoracoabdominal pathology.
During this course, you will be taken on a journey through the thoracoabdominal aorta and its branches, sharing expertise with a world-renown faculty, and you will have the opportunity to practice during numerous workshops by addressing both open surgery and endovascular therapy.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Lugano in 2021!
