This year we expect over 2,500 in-person and 1,000 virtual participating vascular specialists to join us. In previous years we have hosted over 6,000 registrants virtually from over 120 countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are very excited to be back in London 25-27 April 2023. To make CX as accessible as possible, registrants will also have the opportunity to view CX’s world class vascular education on-demand.

The CX Aortic programme runs over 3 days starting with the aortic techniques and technologies day, a full day on the abdominal aorta followed by a full day on the thoracic aorta. You can also look forward to an exciting aortic workshop run by Alexander Zimmermann (Zurich, Switzerland) on the full range of fenestrated and branched endografts included devices that are physician modified. Here Gustavo Oderich (Houston, USA) emphasises what a highlight of the calendar CX is – “I look forward to seeing you all at Charing Cross in London!”
