The European Society of CardioVascular Surgery (ESCVS) was founded May 31st, 1951, in the city of Turin, Italy, with statutes in Strasbourg, France, under the name of “Société Européenne de Chirurgie CardioVasculaire”. René Leriche was elected as president R. dos Santosas as vice president, G. Arnulf as secretary-general and R. Riveaux as treasurer. The founders and subscribers of these first statutes were 40 physicians representing 11 European countries. The first congress of the society was organized in Strasbourg (oct. 5-6, 1952).
We define programs for the Resident Forum session and almost organize fellowships in open and endovascular surgery, and in some specific topics of cardiac surgery. Members of the EC and active members of Society who are leading surgeons in their hospitals should provide fellowship or junior members of Society. All the have achieved is done to the gifts we got from our predecessors. We have profited from a platform, that enables us to go further and higher…» – Rene Leriche (1879-1955)
