About Us

The Association was conceived on 10 May 1985 during a symposium on cardiac anaesthesia in Leiden by an international group of cardiac anaesthesiologists. The inaugural meeting took place in Cambridge in June 1986.

The EACTA Annual Congresses have taken place in various European cities in the past.

Our Vision

Cardiothoracic and vascular surgery and interventional cardiology now offer more than ever an exploding/expanding arsenal of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities to a population with increasing morbidity challenging all involved medical subspecialties to offer the highest quality of care. It is clear that cardiovascular and thoracic anaesthesia and intensive care are undeniably essential.
