We are really honored to announce the sixth edition of the International Meeting on Aortic Diseases that is organized from September 12 to 14, 2018 in Liège, Belgium.
Once again, the main goal of the International Meeting on Aortic Diseases (IMAD) is to gather all cardiovascular clinicians and scientists to share their experiences on basic research, genetic aspects of aortic aneurysms, aortic dissections, aortitis, aortic graft infection and their treatment as well as on the new pathophysiological concepts in bicuspid aortic valve, TAVI indications and surgical treatment of aortic valve diseases and also, to provide information about the latest innovations in spinal cord protection.
You are a vascular or a cardiac surgeon, you are a radiologist, a cardiologist, a geneticist, a biologist, an epidemiologist and/or any scientist, you are welcome in Liège where you’ll have the opportunity to share the experiences of the most renowned experts on aortic diseases. During our “Ask to experts” sessions, you can discuss your challenging cases and also receive answers from them to any question you would have.
We look forward to welcoming you in Liège and to sharing with you another exciting conference on aortic diseases!

Natzi Sakalihasan and Jean-Olivier Defraigne.
