We are inviting senior and trainee clinicians working in the vascular, endovascular and cardiac aortic fields to submit abstracts to be considered for presentations in the CX Abstract Sessions at the CX Aortic Vienna 2021 Conference (5–7 October 2021). The CX Aortic Vienna 2021 – Cardiovascular Aortic Advances programme aims to bring the cardiac aortic and vascular worlds together, spanning the aortic valve to the iliac arteries. We will be showcasing various options, open and endovascular, to treat complex aortic cases whilst exploring techniques and technology.
Successful abstracts will be part of the CX Aortic Vienna Abstract Session, live and on-demand. The highest quality abstracts may be scheduled for live presentation.
