About the annual ESMINT Congress

The annual ESMINT Congress grows year by year. The goal of the conference is to facilitate discussions between neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists and sister scientists about indications, strategies, techniques, complications and morbi-mortality in Vascular Interventional Neuroradiology, and to provide information on new technologies and practices.

Attendees also receive the results from studies, both ongoing and completed. Additionally, we wish to stimulate debates and controversial opinions based on case discussions, operators' experience and the results of most recent studies.

GET INVOLVED! ESMINT is not a typical formal congress. Send us your ideas for subjects you would like us to cover and help us design the program. We want this meeting to open our minds, enlarge our knowledge and eventually influence our practice.
