Programme from 2016

This year was the big conference. There were 3 separate events in addition to the main Thoracic Aorta Symposium: a satellite symposium just about the Marfan Syndrome, that not only discussed the medical aspects but also ways to improve quality of life for patients with this syndrome; a course dedicated to medical students with the help of Ethicon™; a contest evaluating clinical reports in which the team with the best presentation won 1.000€.

Both days of the event happened in Museu do Oriente, in Alcântara, so we had beautiful views of the river and the bridge during breaks and lunch.
