Since the original concept of MAC – where doctors meet science – was so well- received by the international vascular community, we took the decision to continue with an online MAC FOCUS concept, rather than to cancel the 11th MAC completely.
MAC FOCUS stands for two days (rather than three) of outstanding talks, vibrant discussions and as much as possible interaction with online participants from all over the world. The scientific faculty will be composed by world-class speakers and opinion leaders in the field of arterial and venous diseases as well as experts for artificial intelligence and computer-assisted planning and navigation in the hybrid OR. Contentwise we will address multiple critical aspects of endovascular, open surgical and best medical treatment options for our vascular patients. All sessions will be moderated by experienced colleagues, who are able to create vivid and constructive discussions.
Parallel to the main sessions our “interactive channel” will be filled up with meet-the- expert-sessions (e.g. on vascular anomalies), case discussion (live in a box) and online-workshops.
In any case the 11th MAC/MAC FOCUS will continue to be a platform of mutual exchange between vascular clinicians from all vascular medical specialties and colleagues from translational and basic research.
In 2021 we were able to welcome almost 1.100 online participants, who appreciated the choice of topics, the outstanding quality of the talks from our international world- class faculty and the ideal opportunity for discussions. Therefore, we are absolutely convinced, that the 11th MAC FOCUS is concept is interesting for the vascular community. So, join the 11th MAC FOCUS in 2022!
