It is a distinct pleasure for me to invite you to join the 64th International Congress of the European Society for Cardiovascular and Endovascular Surgery which will be held at Bomonti Hilton Convention Center in İstanbul on March 26-29, 2015.
The constitutional mission of the European Society for Cardiovascular and Endovascular Surgery, being one of the oldest societies in the world, has been to promote investigation and study of the art, science and therapy of cardiac and vascular diseases as well as to coordinate the dissemination of its accumulated knowledge. Also ESCVES's main duty has always been to facilitate the exchange of ideas in the field of cardiac and vascular diseases through scientific meetings and by personal contact between cardiac and vascular specialists. We cordially believe that ESCVES 2015 Istanbul Congress will help reach these targets entirely.
This year very interactive sessions with globally renowned experts in their fields with many speakers will be enriching the scientific program. Both Cardiac and Vascular Program Committees of the Society promise to provide an updated, interesting and the most interactive scientific program.
Congress will be enhanced by Hands on Courses with Wet Labs on Surgical AF Ablation, Sutureless Aortic Valve Implantation, Aortic Valve Repair, TAVI, vascular procedures and ECMO as well as live transmissions from international centers.
64th ESCVES will be held in conjunction with the 11th International Congress of Update in Cardiology and CardiovascularSurgery that has been a unique international platform that brings cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons together. With famous international interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists on board, 64th ESCVES will have the potential of fruitful interactive discussions during the entire congress.
