Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to the anniversary 10th congress of the Vascular Access Society, which will take place in Ljubljana (Slovenia) on April 5–8, 2017!

Vascular Access Society (VAS) is a multidisciplinary society of vascular access experts – nephrologists, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, dialysis nurses and technicians, angiologists etc. Vascular access complications are the frequent source of dialysis patients’ morbidity and without a vascular access, hemodialysis is simply impossible. This is why the vascular access research grows exponentially. VAS congresses cover always the current state of the art, which is increasingly difficult for individual experts. We believe that the majority of you experienced the same feeling during the previous VAS congresses (Barcelona, Prague, Istanbul, Rome, Nice....)

Ljubljana is a friendly and charming capitol of Slovenia with relaxed atmosphere. It is a place with very long history, where Baroque facades are mixed with Art Nouveau...
Ljubljana is convenient for all participants in terms of transportation as well as value for money.

Dear friends, keep the date April 5–8, 2017 free for the 10th VAS congress.


Maurizio Gallieni and Jan Malik
Congress Chairmen
