The European Symposium on Vascular Biomaterials meeting – ESVB – is organized biyearly, and its main goal is to bring together users and designers of vascular biomaterials and technologies to create a multidisciplinary network of specialists for the advancement of our science. The main topics of ESVB 2019 will be the following:

  • Robotics, non-X-Ray guidance, and latest trends in per-operative imaging technologies 
  • Updates in endovascular surgery: aortic and peripheral
  • Venous diseases
  • 3D printing technologies in vascular surgery 
  • International research networks in vascular surgery
  • The near future


During the ESVB will also take place a Nurse in vascular Surgery Meeting (held in French) to address topics such as the importance of a complete patient file, identity vigilance, material vigilance, improve patient care with simulation, radioprotection and management pre/post-surgery after specific interventions. 

The ESVB meeting is composed of a satellite day and two days of congress. During the satellite day, will take place a simulation BOOTCAMP and a Translational Research Meeting. 

The bootcamp, organized in our new simulation center in GEPROVAS, is composed of AAA, SFA, Sizing, Fusion, Suture anastomosis end-to-end, Suture circle and Maze Box competition workshops for 20 participants.

The translational research Meeting is composed of the Young researcher Prize and a Textile Symposium.

The Young researcher Prize aims to promote and reward research amongst youngsters. They submit an abstract before June 30th, thirty-five researchers will be selected and will present their work in front of a jury and a public of experts. Four of the best speakers will be selected and present during the ESVB where the three best will be awarded 1500€, 1000€ and 500€. They also have the opportunity to present a poster of their work which will be displayed in the venue of the congress, the best poster will be awarded 500€.

The textile symposium, chaired by Renu Virmani will address topics such as, textile for hernia repair, new non-woven fibers obtained from supra molecular polymers, latest advances in fibrous scaffolds manufacturing and the potential and limits of medical textile.
