Welcome to the 3rd Vienna Vascular Surgery Symposium

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to Vienna for our 3rd International Symposium on Vascular Surgery, with a focus on abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) research. The program features excellent translational and clinical science, including AAA guidelines, and gives exciting updates from our research community.
The speakers are renowned scientists and clinicians in the field of vascular biology and vascular surgery.
Together we aim to progress the current standards for AAA diagnosis and treatment and to devise clinical studies.
All participants are highly welcome to contribute to our joined efforts.
