“When imaging meets biomaterials and living tissue properties in vascular surgery” was the goal and main watchword of the 10th
celebration of the ESVB. Fulfilled mission with a focus on the following topics discussed by more than 70 Key Opinion Leaders in the field:
Durability of vascular and endovascular devices
Latest trends in per-operative imaging technologies
Tissue, plaque and vessel wall properties and endovascular technologies
An important place was also given to the expert updates on latest endovascular technologies, integral part of every ESVB edition.
The 3-day symposium included also a vascular simulation bootcamp in the GEPROVAS Vascular Surgery Simulation & Training center, which allowed 20 residents to get lectures and hands-on practice with the supervision of highly qualified vascular surgeons.
After a successful seminar on medical textile in Mulhouse in 2015, the ESVB 2017 held 3 different scientific symposiums and workshops:
A symposium on medical textile
A workshop on vascular tissue biobanking
A workshop on radiation safety
For this special 10th
edition, the most gourmands had the opportunity to attend a small symposium on Alsatian gastronomy. After a presentation of Alsatian vineyards and gastronomy history, participants tasted some Gewürztraminer, some traditional gingerbreads, kougelhopfs and foie gras.
Finally, this 2017 edition was marked by an important participation of young researcher with more than 35 posters, and a first opening to startups and technologies with the INNOV’illage and a first innovation contest won by SimforHealth.
