Floor plan of the 60th ESCVS International Congress


 Dear Colleagues,
The 60-th Jubilee International Congress of the European Society for Cardiovascular and Endovascular Surgery (ESCVS) will be held in the beautiful and hospitable city of Moscow – the capital of the Russian Federation, on May 20-22, 2011. A creative Scientific Program devoted to all current aspects of modern cardiovascular surgery is being planned. The Program will cover cross occupational medical issues, including heart surgery and vascular surgery, endovascular procedures and interventional electrophysiology. We consider the main objective of the ESCVS annual congress to be the integration of recent scientific developments and knowledge on the way of implementation into clinical practice of most up-to-date highly informative diagnostic methods, fundamentally new surgical and endovascular approaches to treatment, as well as hybrid surgery and wide use of implantable devices based on latest achievements of fundamental sciences.

Cardiac and Vascular Surgeons, Cardiologists, Angiologists and related specialists are invited to participate in the 60th ESCVS Congress. 

The Scientific Program this time will have a new point of interest, which is surgery of congenital heart diseases. Leading professionals will be involved in the discussion. 

The Congress will also feature an event, where the European Society for Cardiovascular and Endovascular Surgery in conjunction with the Russian Association of Cardiovascular Surgeons and the Russian Society of Angiologists and Vascular Surgeons will take part in a common scientific program.

Oral and Poster presentation of original scientific value along with lectures, round table discussions and symposia will be useful to share knowledge and experience on recent advances in diagnosis and management of cardiac and vascular pathology. All abstracts accepted for presentation will be published in the Journal of “Interactive Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery”. Young investigators are encouraged to present their research data and to participate in the Competition for the ESCVS Young Vascular Surgeon Award in Vascular or Endovascular Surgery or for ESCVS Young Cardiac Surgeon Prize in Cardiology, Cardiac or Thoracic Surgery.

The opening ceremony will take place at the Bolshoi Theatre followed by a ballet. Congress venue will be Crocus Expo a modern and easy to get convention centre.

The Organizing Committee invites you to discover the breathtaking beauty of Moscow, one of the world’s greenest capitals, where historical and architectural monuments of past and present form a unique harmony. An exciting and exclusive Social Program has been planned for the accompanying persons.

Dear Colleagues! We suggest you register early since the travel to Moscow requires a Visa that is better to arrange in advance. 

We look forward to seeing you in Moscow in May 2011!
