A comprehensive offer under one roof
This year’s Aortic Forum, which takes place from 21-23 June in Brussels, provides a comprehensive offer: we are bringing together all the topics that we have traditionally offered during the Aortic Valve Repair Summit with the key aspects of major aortic surgery. You can expect world class education with globally renowned experts covering aortic valve sparing surgery and aortic valve repair – as well as open, hybrid, transcatheter and endovascular techniques used in aortic surgery. Live surgery will be an important feature of this year’s Aortic Forum. This fantastic blend of topics will provide everything you need under one roof at the Aortic Forum and improve the diffusion of this type of surgery and connect aortic surgeons with individual specific interests.
Engage with pioneers in the specialty
The Aortic Forum will celebrate the lifetime contributions from two of the masters, Professor El Khoury and Professor Schäfers.
Professor El Khoury, a pioneer in aortic valve repair surgery, joins us to share his expertise and techniques that have made him a renowned expert around the world. You will also have the opportunity to learn from Professor Schäfers, whose dedicated approach to the collection of sound scientific data has been instrumental in the standardisation and reproducibility of aortic valve repair. A special session will take place to celebrate their careers and will also feature two giants in our specialty: Sir Magdi Yacoub and Dr Tirone David who paved the way to this type of surgery more than thirty years ago. This session is not to be missed!
This year’s Aortic Forum has been designed to give you the answers to the many unanswered questions in various aspects of aortic surgery. We are proud to invite you to such an important meeting and we look forward to seeing you in Brussels in June.
