Welcome Message of the Congress President 2021

Dear colleagues and friends,

Following an intense analysis of various options and carefully weighing the current Covid situation in France as well as the rest of Europe, the ESMINT ExCom has decided to hold the annual ESMINT Congress as a physical conference in Nice from September 8-10. For colleagues who cannot travel to Nice in September, presentations and debates will be streamed online.

Prof. Dr. Christian Taschner: ESMINT Congress President 2021.

We have spent the last couple of months compiling an interesting and diverse program, including among other things a debate on treatment of unruptured AVM, a review on post-subarachnoid haemorrhage vasospasm, debates on different concepts of aneurysm treatment, as well as a new horizon session covering the treatment of symptomatic intracranial hypotension and endovascular treatment for chronic subdural hematomas.

In a joint session with the European stroke organisation (ESO) we will cover a variety of clinical aspects of ischemic stroke treatment in patients with large vessel occlusion. Another highlight of the program is going to be a session focusing on the vessel wall and advanced techniques to visualize vessel wall pathologies which have the potential to lead treatment decision in complex patients.

Of course there will be plenty of room left for late-breaking scientific abstracts as well as a large number of exciting case presentations of the delegates.

The 13th ESMINT Congress will give us – at last – the opportunity to get together again in a physical meeting with friends, colleagues, exhibitors, and experts in the field in order to broaden our knowledge, exchange ideas, develop new projects, and have a good time at a wonderful location.

As such, you are cordially invited to participate in the Congress, and I very much look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Nice in September, or via the virtual platform.

Christian Taschner
President of the 13th ESMINT Congress

CME Credits

The ESMINT 2021 – 13th Congress of the European Society of Minimally Invasive Therapy, Nice, France, 08/09/2021-10/09/2021 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 16 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

The CME accreditation is valid for the main congress programme and does not cover the company-sponsored symposia.


Certificates of attendance indicating the CME credits are available online from Friday, 10 September 2021 after the congress.

About the annual ESMINT Congresses

The annual ESMINT Congress is growing year by year. The goal of the conference is to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions between interventional neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, and scientists. These discussions refer to indications, strategies, techniques, complications, and morbi-mortality in vascular interventional neuroradiology, endovascular neurosurgery, and vascular neurology.

Moreover, the annual ESMINT Congress is to provide information on new technologies and practices. Attendees also receive the results from studies, both ongoing and completed.

Additionally, we wish to stimulate debates and controversial opinions based on case discussions, operators’ experience and the results of most recent studies.

The ESMINT Congress is a conference on interventional neuroradiology and endovascular neurosurgery. It has a strong focus on education as many ESMINT training activities. Usually, parts of the programme are compiled with partner societies with an overlapping interest in interventional neuroradiology and endovascular neurosurgery.

GET INVOLVED! ESMINT is not a typical formal congress. Send us your ideas for subjects you would like us to cover and help us design the program. We want this meeting to open our minds, enlarge our knowledge and eventually influence our practice.
