Welcome – Mobile

Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the Controversy and Updates in Vascular Surgery (CACVS) 2018 edition, one of the major interactive post graduate course for vascular surgeons, cardiac surgeons, vascular radiologists and angiologists in Europe.
Enjoy two and a half days addressing all aspects of vascular diseases and their treatments. Learn about the most recent available data about on-going or recently published trials, technical advances of open vascular or endovascular procedures and participate in debates on controversial topics. Finally, thanks to an interactive electronic system, you will be able to check right away your professional skills and knowledge.
Two parallel sessions will take place respectively on Friday reviewing the most recent data on vascular access and on Saturday discussing at large the advances on interventional treatments of venous diseases. An ePosters competition will lead to the designation of the best CACVS 2018 abstracts.
We hope you will fully enjoy the congress while improving your daily practice in a friendly atmosphere.

Prof Jean-Pierre Becquemin and Stephan Haulon
