The ESCVS is the oldest society in Europe in the cardiac and vascular surgical field and was founded by René Leriche and R. Dos Santos in 1950. It has a strong tradition of merging specialties to provide better care for patients. The Society is actively engaged in projects involving its young members, to train them and give them experience and knowledge about the art, science and therapy of cardiac and vascular diseases.
In 2018 we will be returning to Strasbourg, where the first conference of ESCVS was held. Strasbourg’s history is steeped in 2000 years of international encounters, thanks to its location in the heart of Europe. The city of Strasbourg was the seat of some of the most important planning for European post-war reconstruction and it is now home to several EU institutions, including the European Parliament, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights.
The ESCVS will continue to provide a platform for education, investigation and collaboration for all specialists in the field of cardiac and vascular surgery. The Society’s young members are actively engaged in various projects to give them experience and knowledge about the art, science and therapy of cardiac and vascular diseases.
