4th European Cardiovascular Course (ECC) / 24th European Vascular Course (EVC)
We would like to inform you on the European Cardiovascular Course (ECC) 2020. The 4th ECC 2020 will be taking place on March 22-24 in Maastricht, the Netherlands. ECC is integrated in the 24th European Vascular Course (EVC).
EVC is organized since 23 years and focuses on training and education of (young) cardiovascular specialists. We host some 2500 participants every year, who participate in the theoretical curriculum and rotate in more than 60 workshops for the practical part of the program. We have a superb faculty to present the state of the art lectures on arterial, venous, vascular access and cardiovascular subjects. The cardiovascular course will focus on root, ascending aortic and aortic arch pathologies and treatment.
ECC 2020 will offer:
▸ 12 invited lectures on aortic root, aortic valve, ascending aorta and aortic arch
▸ Edited videos on surgical and endovascular techniques
▸ Case discussions on aortic root, TAVI, ascending aorta and aortic arch pathologies
▸ Workshops on TAVI, valve sparing, Bentall, debranching, arch repair and frozen elephant trunk techniques
▸ Surgical anatomy of the heart
Very important news is that MedTech Europe has again classified EVC as Third Party Organized Procedure Training. This confirms that ECC/EVC stands for a high-level course, both for theoretical and practical training. It also means that medical companies can financially support delegates to participate at EVC (travel, hospitality and registration fee).
