Dear colleagues

On behalf of all organizers it is my pleasure to invite you very cordially to the 5th MUNICH VASCULAR CONFERENCE (MVC) on November 27th -28th, 2015.

Since the feed-back on our last meeting has been very positive once more, the 5th MVC will continue to offer a platform for mutual exchange between vascular clinicians and translational researchers. All participants of the 2014 meeting appreciated the excellent choice of topics, the outstanding quality of the talks from the international faculty and the ideal opportunity for discussions.

The 5th MVC will again be a combination of the 5th Munich Aortic Conference (MAC) and the 5th Munich Carotid Conference (MCC). As requested by many participants we will additionally address the issue of Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD) this year for the first time. Since PAD is the most common peripheral arterial disease this topic is of utmost importance for all clinicians. PAD offers a vast field for clinical and translational research on biological mechanisms of atherosclerosis, modern diagnostics and cutting-edge technologies for open and endovascular repair.

For the second time, scientific abstracts were submitted. Out of almost 50 submissions we selected eleven abstracts for oral presentation and included them into the scientific program. Further 32 submitters were chosen to present their abstracts as posters. The best two oral and two poster presentations will be awarded with EUR 300.00!

Do not miss the opportunity to share the latest insights into the world of academic vascular research, represented by our world-class faculty. The 5th MVC will provide you with the latest news and cutting-edge approaches in the management of acute and chronic peripheral aortic and carotid diseases. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Munich.
