President's Message

Dr. José Fernando Teixeira

This International Symposium continues to endorse the novelty in Angiology and Vascular Surgery fields, throw interactive learning processes, including main debates and live cases transmission.

In 2016 we expanded the number of live clinical cases, the broadcasting and transmission facilities, and the National Faculty involved. Again, some of the European references will work with us, sharing their skilled experience and recognized expertise.

On behalf of the future of the specialty, we are happy to offer the registration to all portuguese and international residents. We strongly believe that this exchange of knowledge will bring results of profit to all the present and future vascular comunity.

Best regards, José
