Aortic Live 2018

Dear Colleagues,

Aortic Live 2018 in Essen was a great success regarding the number of delegates, the performed live cases by internationally renowned experts and the stimulating presentations and discussions. The meeting has offered the largest number of aortic live cases ever performed in a single meeting: 20 high-level operations with cutting edge technology and operative technique.

Due to the current situation, we have decided to proceed with Aortic Live Symposium as a hybrid event. The entire content of Aortic Live Symposium will be streamed, allowing for remote participation. We are currently working on a virtual platform, which will display live case transmission form various cathlabs and ORs, as well as lectures and discussions of the on-site KOLs.

A virtual exhibit will be in place for our participants, allowing for direct contact with industry representatives, and displaying latest information of new developments.

Please  spread the word among your colleagues that Aortic Live Symposium will take place  on October 26 and 27, 2020, in this new format.

Registration will be free-of-charge and as soon as the platform is available we will inform you accordingly.
We are looking forard to welcoming you to Aortic Live Symposium!
