The Interdisciplinary Endovascular Aortic Symposium

Following the third successful Interdisciplinary Endovascular Aortic Symposium (IDEAS) in Copenhagen, we are proud to announce that the fourth meeting will take place in Lisbon from September 23-25, 2018, and will once again run parallel to the CIRSE Annual Meeting. Join us for three  days filled with a variety of endovascular aortic-themed sessions that are bound to be packed full of interesting discussion and insightful debates.

We are honoured to announce that we have a distinguished multidisciplinary faculty, this year headed by the new IDEAS Chairperson, Goetz Richter, and they will be leading dialogues on current issues being faced in the field.


The 2017 Congress in Copenhagen saw a fantastic IDEAS programme with many exciting features, and next year we intend to develop these even further. One such feature, the Industry Training Village, offered delegates hands-on experience with thoracic and abdominal aortic devices and will again be available for physicians to participate in free, interactive workshops as well as to try out new tools for their practice. Stay tuned as additional highlights are being planned that you won’t want to miss!
