On April 12–14, the 67th Congress of the European Society of Cardiovascular and Endovascular Surgery (ESCVS) took place in Strasbourg, France. It was a diversified combination of keynote lectures, symposia and presentations by the leading experts from the world’s best clinics. The Congress included more than 30 sessions devoted to the hot topics in cardiovascular and endovascular surgery.

During the Vascular Abstract Session, Mikhail Chernyavsky, Head of the Vascular and Interventional Surgery Department, gave presentations on the successful hybrid repair of aortic arch aneurysms. The topic brought on a vivid discussion among the audience.

The delegation from the Vascular and Interventional Surgery Department presented the early and long-term outcomes in hybrid procedures for treatment of multilevel lesions of brachiocephalic arteries and aortoiliac segment as well as the most interesting clinical cases of hybrid repair procedures for aortic arch aneurysms.

The participants discussed the innovative, minimally invasive treatments for aortic and peripheral arterial diseases, the multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of complex patients, the prospects for development of hybrid and endovascular techniques. It should be noted that the results presented by our delegation were consistent with the stated topical areas and were highly recognized by the international peers.

Clearly, such events provide an opportunity for participants to broaden their scientific horizons and professional expertise, thus contributing to the development of science, faster introduction of new technologies into clinical practice and better quality of medical care.
