Programme from 2015

In 2015 happened the second edition of TALS in the well known Tivoli Hotel, with much success, creating the tradition of an anual conference about the Thoracic Aorta in Lisbon. TALS become the time and place to share, discuss and learn the work done by all involved in this area.
