We hope that the days of the Congress will be marked by interesting lectures, presentations, discussions, debates, poster sessions and master-classes.

Delegates from many countries around the world will share their experience in applying advanced methods of treatment in the field of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, as well as valuable academic researches and cases. A wide-ranging scientific program consisting of lectures, symposia and presentation on the most critical issues challenging the most knowledge-intensive field of medicine will be covered. Moreover, the postgraduate course in conjunction with the American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS) focusing on cutting-edge technology and innovation in cardiovascular surgery will also be in the Program. Every program and session of this event would be carefully designed to provide a meaningful and fruitful content to all the participants.

Along with the extensive scientific program, delegates and guests of the Congress will be able to get acquainted with the traditions and cultural heritage of the state of Russia, visit museums and concert halls, theatrical and circus performances.

The Opening Ceremony of the 26th Congress of ASCVTS will be held in the premises of the world-famous State Bolshoi Theater of Russia and will be followed by the ballet performance of Herman Severin Levenskiold "La Sylphide".
