Greetings! Welcome to the 22nd Congress of the Asian Society of Vascular Surgery (ASVS).
First, this meeting provides new techniques and approaches for resolving vascular diseases. In the endovascular field, we introduce new devices and methods. In the surgical sphere, we offer many presentations on the latest advances in surgical treatment. We also provide insight on the core issues in endovascular care.
Second, since the Covid-19 pandemic is still influencing our daily life, this meeting has a hybrid style. Thank you for cooperating as we tackle this difficult situation. Safety is the most critical priority to us. Therefore, since we decided on a web-based virtual meeting for the ASVS meeting, we prepared some thought-provoking sessions, which will be stimulating and valuable. Please be sure to join us!
Third, we would like to thank the Asian vascular surgeons and their organizations for holding this conference, the 22nd Congress of ASVS. Many important presentations will be submitted and discussed with influential scientific minds.
Finally, we will ensure to make this a meaningful conference. Your cooperation is essential as we navigate the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.
