Inaugural Forum: The edge of tomorrow - endoscopic cardiac surgery

Inaugural Forum: The edge of tomorrow - endoscopic cardiac surgery

COMPLIANT to Ethical MedTech



Join us in Thessaloniki, Greece, on September 9 &10, 2022 for the Inaugural Forum of the ECSC. Our goal is to promote endoscopic cardiac surgery which is on the eve of its coming of age, but there is still a long way before it is recognized as “State of the Art”.
After those years of confinement and restrictions, this forum will be a late, but unique opportunity to meet in person.
Let us share our experience, our knowledge, our tricks.
Let us design a strategy to further develop our action.
We will be on the land of Alexander the Great and let us hope that his spirit will inspire us in the development that we are looking for.
He could count on his remarkable horse, Bucephalus, we count on our endoscopes!

Patrick Perier
Chairman of The ECSClub


On behalf of The Endoscopic Cardiac Surgeons Club (ECSC) I am delighted to invite you to be part of our Inaugural Forum which will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece, on the 9th and 10th of September 2022.
Our aim is to get together and discuss as many cases as possible, with LIVE 3D 4K and LIVE IN A BOX endoscopic operations and other presentations of high scientific content.
The LIVE 3D 4K CASES will be projected in 3D 4K in the auditorium, transmitted with laser technology, creating a unique experience!
By the end of the two-day conference, we should have consolidated the expertise in the field of endoscopic cardiac surgery and bring the new era of our specialty into "the edge of tomorrow".
Thessaloniki has been a place of continuing inhabitance since the fourth BC century and thus is an open archaeological site! It has been a multicultural city as it is situated at the crossroads of the East and West, on the quiet side of the Aegean Sea. Very attractive port with vibrant nightlife and beautiful surroundings.
Of course we will have the chance to experience Thessaloniki by night.
I hope we meet you all here in Greece, to exchange and learn from each other while enjoying the Greek hospitality, Philoxenia.

Head of the Local Organising Committee
