Welcome to VIP Congress

The VIP Congress belongs to an ambitious scientific project started in 2012, aiming to meet every two years scientists from different geographical areas for high-level scientific exchange, collaboration and education focused on vascular diseases.

The first edition was attended by more than 200 Latin Americans. The subsequent editions gathered over 300 people coming from North America, Asia, Africa and Australia.

Now comes the new edition with a greater approach.
VIP 2021 will join the 69th Congress of the European Society for Cardio Vascular Surgery (ESCVS) and we are excited to come together to exchange knowledge and experiences in our work field.

We trust that your attendance at this congress will result in sharing of expertise and expansion of local and global programs.
We encourage you to submit abstracts and to register early. We look forward to seeing many of you in Padua.

Don’t miss it!
