34th EACTA Annual Congress 2019

Dear All,

We’re delighted to welcome you to the 34th EACTA Annual Congress 2019, to be hosted in the historic city of Ghent!

Until the 13th century Ghent was the second-largest city in Europe next to Paris and still remains one of the best-preserved medieval cities in all of Europe. The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, an altarpiece by the Flemish brothers van Eyck, is only one of the treasures of the city.  Despite being historic, Ghent remains small enough to feel cosy but big enough to be a vibrant. National Geographic Traveler Magazine has therefore listed Ghent as the most authentic and historic city in the world and full of life.

This year we are collaborating with our North American colleagues from the SCA in order to bring you an exciting meeting with world-renowned speakers, a comprehensive program, multiple pro-con debates and several exciting workshops.

A wise man once said “The only people who see the whole picture are the ones who step outside the frame”.  As cardiothoracic anaesthetists and intensivists we need to think further ‘out of the box’ as we are now at the forefront of becoming the new perioperative physician. Therefore it is important to share experiences and knowledge with colleagues, to interact with key opinion leaders and to discover new scientific developments in the field of cardiovascular and thoracic anaesthesiology during our annual congress.

Come and join us in Ghent in September 2019!

Stefaan Bouchez
President of the 34th EACTA Annual Congress 2019
