CX Aortic Live Returns in 2024

We are delighted to host the inaugural CX Aortic Live after four CX Aortic Vienna symposia from 7 – 8 October 2024 at the beautiful Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere Hotel in central Vienna, and livestream globally for two days of aortic techniques and technologies focused on cardiac, vascular and endovascular aortic advances.

CX Aortic Live is the only dedicated boutique hotel meeting focused on the stand-alone aorta  – from the aortic valve to the iliac arteries. Importantly, the CX Aortic community is for all who manage the aorta and welcomes specialists from all backgrounds including cardiac aortic, cardiovascular, cardiothoracic, interventional, radiology, vascular and endovascular experts.

The mission of CX Aortic Live is to unite the classical open, hybrid and endovascular solutions to distil what is in the patient’s best interest and how we can progress the future of aortic care. CX Aortic Live will have the largest number of live cases ever performed in a single meeting. 20 Aortic procedures will be performed live with cutting edge technology and world-class operative techniques. Aortic Live editions in Hamburg and Essen attracted approximately 500 participants of which 60% were vascular surgeons and 40% were cardiac aortic surgeons.
