Dear Colleagues and Friends!

Time is flying quickly and it is a great pleasure to welcome you again to Vienna for the
14th Vienna Interdisciplinary Symposium on Aortic Repair (VISAR).

After a pandemic-caused break we are back on stage! In the typical VISAR tradition, international experts from different medical specialties will provide state-of-the-art educational lectures and discuss the management of challenging cases and complications in the treatment of aortic diseases. Due to the excellent feedback, we will continue and expand our hands-on session during the entire course.

This year, we have also decided to implement the program “Bring your resident(s)“. Each resident that accompanies you, will get a 50% reduction on the registration fee.

VISAR 2022 will focus mainly on several timely topics – including the following:
1) How to approach the hostile neck – fEVAR can fit all?
2) Education and Recruitement – how to ensure aortic therapy in and for the future?
3) The TEVAR and EVAR toolbox – what’s new?
4) Aortic valve and aortic root – state of the art treatment at a glance
5) The infected (Stent)graft

Over the course of VISAR 2022, you’ll be informed about newest findings and knowledge related to aortic diseases, get an insight into ongoing trials, exchange with your peers and learn from international experts! Take the opportunity to actively contribute to the meeting by submitting a case to present, by participating in the debates & discussions and getting educated by attending some of the small group hands-on sessions!
The program once again consists on a well-balanced mixture of state-of-the-art lectures on management of challenging cases and complications, related case presentations and discussions, and hands-on training sessions on different topics related to aortic therapy as well. These hands-on training sessions include wet-lab training and workshops dedicated to different therapeutic means. The main sessions are organized around “key-note cases” and provide multidisciplinary pro-and con debates on the highest level of experience to provide highest possible practical value for the attendees.

We are looking forward to seeing you in May in Vienna for VISAR 2022!
