ABOUT THE EVENT When East meets West knowledge knows no bounds.

Dear colleagues,

The sixth edition of East Meets West Congress was an exceptional event with an impressive faculty. More than 300 doctors joined us during the two days of the meeting. We thank them once again for their attention, for the high academic level of their presentations, for the questions they addressed to all those who lectured at EMW2024.

Special thanks to Professor Alain Cribier, a professional role model for the entire medical world, with an unparalleled contribution in saving human lives.

You can see some photos from this year’s edition where we brought together, at the same table, the greatest cardiovascular, endovascular surgeons and cardiologists from around the world.

In the end we would like you to know that the countdown to the registration for the seventh edition of EMW begins! We will be back with the registration link!

See you soon!

Prof. Dr. Victor Costache
Prof. Dr. Horațiu Moldovan
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Silviu Dumitrescu

Bucharest, Romania

Bucharest is the capital and largest city in Romania and was first mentioned in documents from September 20, 1459. In addition to being an administrative and economic center, it is also the starting point for tourist destinations in Romania. French influences in culture and architecture brought Bucharest the name “Little Paris”.
