Welcome to the 2019 Australasian Thoracic Aortic Symposium

The program commences Thursday 28 February with a stimulating day of didactic sessions and wetlab at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Skills and Education Centre focusing on Aortic Root Procedures and Endovascular Stents. 

The ATAS being held at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins runs from Friday 01 - Saturday 02 March.
As with previous years, there will be an exciting program covering the spectrum of Thoracic Aortic procedures, with emphasis on current techniques and recent technological developments. We are fortunate to have a comprehensive panel of leading international and local experts to share their wisdom. Equally importantly, we hope that the warm and relaxed atmosphere will be a conduit for rekindling old and forging new friendships.
