MAC Conference 6-8.12.2018

I ove godine smo zahvaljujući prof. Ecksteinu dobili 25 besplatnih registracija.

Molim sve zainteresirane za sudjeovanje da se jave na



On behalf of the organising committee it is my pleasure to invite the Croatian community of vascular surgeons and endovascular specialists to the 8TH MUNICH VASCULAR CONFERENCE (MAC) at the second weekend in December 2018. In order to support your participation, 25 members of your society will get FREE ACCESS TO THE 8TH MAC. We would be absolutely delighted, if you could inform the members of your society about the possibility to attend one of the best European vascular scientific meetings.

Vascular diseases are diagnosed and treated by different medical specialties ranging from vascular surgery to radiology, angiology/cardiology, neurology, and many others respectively. The 8TH MAC will continue to be a platform for mutual exchange between vascular clinicians from all medical specialties and colleagues from translational and basic research. Both sides will benefit from each other: clinicians have the chance to learn more about translational research and the evolution of cutting-edge technologies (including their pros and cons) and translational researchers may get a better understanding for the needs of vascular clinicians and their patients.

In 2017 the number of participants increased to more than 630 people from 37 countries! The overall feedback of the 7th MAC 2017 was again very good with the respect to topics, presentations, and discussions. In addition parallel educational and technical workshops were very well-attended!
