Friends and Colleagues,
The MEET Congress remains the European premier multidisciplinary
endovascular gathering. Throughout the years it
has brought together vascular surgeons, interventional
cardiologists and interventional radiologists, aiming
at building endovascular synergies.
For this year’s edition we aspire to develop
our most powerful and innovative scientific program
yet. We are contented to have established the annual
joint meeting of ISES and MEET that is going to
be held for the second time on Thursday June 26th.
This course aims at summarizing and updating the
current knowledge about endovenous treatment and
abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms.
Three whole sessions on Friday and Saturday will
be focused on peripheral endovascular interventions
in the lower limbs and the renal arteries. For the
first time we will have a session entitled: “New
Frontiers in Endovascular Procedures & Structural
Heart Diseases”, chaired by Dr. Alain Cribier
and Dr. Roy Greenberg. Finally, Saturday June 28th
will be dedicated to the MEET Carotid Course that
will cover the technical and clinical aspects of
carotid stenting and the latest clinical trials.
For the first time, in parallel, we are organizing
the Nurses and Techs Course, especially tailored
to satisfy the needs of your team. We encourage
you to motivate your co-workers to attend this one-day
course on Saturday June 28th.
The MEET official language is English. Since 50
percent of our attendees are French or Italian,
we have decided to provide simultaneous translation
in French and Italian.
Finally, the education delivered during the Friday
sessions on peripheral endovascular interventions
will be developed by the MEET Combo 2008 (book &
DVD), focusing on the endovascular treatment of
lesions in lower limbs arteries and aortic
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Cannes,
from June 26 to 29!
Don’t miss it!
