Dear friends,

The Charing Cross (CX) Symposium is about delivering world class vascular education, considering the evidence and showcasing innovation. The CX Innovation Showcase is dedicated to highlighting innovation, what it takes for a physician-inventor to succeed and for innovative ideas in the vascular and endovascular arena to thrive. For the first time since the last in person CX Symposium in 2019, this year’s CX Innovation Showcase brings together leading industry experts, physician-inventors, engineers, medtech investors and start-up companies all focused on improving vascular disease management.

With my fellow Course Directors Bob Mitchell and Frans Moll, we have put together a one day programme that highlights cutting edge peripheral technologies such as sirolimus coated balloons and HIFU treatment, aortic innovation with the first in human results of the Endovascular Aneurysm Stabilization Treatment (EAST) and the concept of aortoporosis and its implications for AAA treatment and venous innovation with the first in human data of a bioprosthetic valve for venous insufficiency.

There is a special session on the impact of Artificial Intelligence on vascular disease management.

The day finishes with the ever popular Dragons’ Den where early stage technologies compete for the £1000 CX Innovation Prize. Full CX Innovation Programme details are here.

Register now and see you at the London Hilton Metropole later this month!
