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.

Now it is time for Aortic Live to return to Hamburg on October 26 and 27 2020,  with an unchanged focus on open and endovascular techniques for treatment of the entire aorta and the aortic valve. This meeting will again accentuate the importance of an interdisciplinary collaboration in order to achieve best results for patients with aortic disease.

Aortic Live Symposium 2020 will give you the opportunity to witness international expert operators and to discuss and interact closely with a distinctive international faculty.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Hamburg!
