The main goal of the European Symposium on Vascular Biomaterials is to meet at the same time worldwide and renowned scientific researchers and physicians involved in research and usage of vascular biomaterials in the Vascular and Endovascular field. We want to promote knowledge, further develop the multidisciplinary approach - that we believe is essential - and create an interactive platform that should allow us to have productive exchanges and have durable future collaboration.
The ESVB meeting is organized every 2 years since 1999 in order to always focus on new scientific and medical perspectives.
Since the last 18 years the ESVB went through topics upon the fundamental research on biomaterials, the influence of prosthesis surface treatment, the connection of biomaterials to arterial structures, the laparoscopy & robotic anastomosis, the treatment in aortic arch pathologies, the peripheral recanalization and peripheral drug eluting technologies, the Superficial Femoral Artery (SFA) associated diseases, the Conventional vs Endovascular Approaches to the Ascending Aorta / Aortic Arch and the intraluminal navigation.
In 2015, the plenary sessions dealt with all around the new technologies for Thoraco-Abdominal and Aortic Abdominal Aneurysm treatment (TAA), as well as the reviews of infrainguinal and debulking technologies and techniques. We have also initiated the first satellite workshops about « Endovascular Simulation Bootcamp » & « Medical textile ».
To celebrate the 10th ESVB anniversary, we are delighted to announce that we will renew the 3-day-congress concept and the ESVB 2017 will focus on:
• Durability of vascular and endovascular devices
• Latest trends in per-operative imaging technologies
• Tissue, plaque and vessel wall properties and endovascular technologies
• Expert updates on latest endovascular technologies
The first day of this 3-day-congress, will be dedicated to cutting-edge workshops:
• 3rd Endovascular Simulation Fall Mini-bootcamp
• Medical Textile workshop
/ 2 hours
• Radiation Safety workshop
/ 2 hours
• Biobanks advanced course
/ 2 hours
• How to prepare "Alsacian Cuisine"
/ 2 hours
New in 2017
More than ever, the 10th ESVB meeting will be a fantastic opportunity for all those dedicated to the technological dimension of our field to meet at a European level. To that end, we give you an appointment in the « Technical and Start-up » corner during the congress.
Last but not least, this year, the meeting will be endorsed by the European Society of Vascular Surgery
(ESVS). All the shared knowledge will be summarized in a complete conference book
, electronic version will be available, as each participant could keep in mind the latest update in the field and think about how we could reach the further technological steps for Vascular Surgery.
