Vascular Surgery was unlocked successfully. Thank you for your help!


Dear Colleagues,
Once it became clear that COVID-19 was more than a mayfly, we decided to proceed with the Leuven Vascular Symposium as a live webinar.
On the one hand this was an easy decision as we didn’t want to risk that a 30-year-old tradition would fall victim to the ever-changing COVID-19 restrictions. On the other hand this decision was quite difficult to take as the Leuven Vascular Symposium is not only appreciated for its focus on evidence and quality, but also as a meeting place for vascular surgeons, trainees, nurses and other healthcare professionals as well as our industrial partners.
We accepted the challenge and this resulted in a virtual platform with interactive lectures and (for the first time) dedicated workshops. A virtual exhibit will be in place, allowing for direct contact with industry representatives, faculty and colleagues.
Put aside your hesitation for digital interaction and exchange your thoughts about
We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Leuven Vascular Symposium in the cloud! Just bring your own seat, coffee and meal.
Take care!
On behalf of the vascular team in Leuven,
Inge Fourneau
