About 36th Charing Cross International Symposium
In its 36th year, the Charing Cross International Symposium, held in London, is an educational forum, which takes place over four days. The plenary sessions run in a logical sequence starting with carotids and the lower limb on Saturday, the abdominal aorta on Sunday, the thoracic aorta and more carotids on Monday, renals and venous on Tuesday. Once again, a world class faculty discusses controversial topics, challenges the evidence, and takes part in a series of head-to-head debates to reach a consensus after discussion. www.cxsymposium.com : cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww ..
