CX Aortic Vienna Abstracts – Vascular Ultrasound Practitioners

Abstract Submission Guidelines and Form

Submission deadline was Sunday 19 July 2020
Notification of acceptance: Monday 3 August 2020

We are inviting ultrasound practitioners to submit abstracts to be considered for presentations or as electronic posters in the CX Abstract Sessions at the CX Aortic Vienna Live Virtual Conference (8–11 September 2020). The CX Aortic Vienna – Cardiovascular Aortic Advances programme will cover open and endovascular aortic interventions from the aortic valve to the iliac arteries. There is an exciting opportunity to participate in a special session put together to demonstrate multidisciplinary working in achieving best outcomes for patients with aortic diseases.

Successful abstracts will be part of the on-demand CX Abstract Session.
