Highlights for CX 2017

The next Charing Cross Symposium (Olympia Grand, London, UK, 25–28 April 2017) will focus on Consensus in the vascular and endovascular field. In 2017, all the sessions in the CX Programme will address “Pathways of Care“. The audience will hear presentations which should provide learning on selection of patients for intervention, type of intervention and criteria for intervention in all of the vascular domains.

The 4-day educational Programme will include:
