Welcome letter

Dear colleagues and friends,

After an uncertain period, due to the corona pandemic, and in a period that we all missed the networking and direct contact, WoCoVA is proud to announce the 7th World Congress on Vascular Access, to be held as a physical meeting in Athens, October 16-18, 2022. This global event will be hosted in the Megaron Athens International Conference Center (MAICC) in Greece.

This biennial multidisciplinary and multi-professional event will cover all aspects of vascular access: materials, indications for the choice of the device, insertion techniques, tip location methods and prevention and management of all vascular access device (VAD) related complications like infection, thrombosis, occlusion and care & maintenance.

The theme of the 7th WoCoVA is: “Lessons learned from the pandemic”.

Discussions will focus on the issues of safety, cost effectiveness and efficiency in vascular access, as well as on the need or worldwide-sharing guidelines for the clinical practice, technology advances, evidence-based practices and networking.

Scientific and educational sessions hosted by the most important international experts will offer an exceptional occasion for updating vascular access knowledge as well as sharing experiences and learnings about future trends and innovations in the area of VA-devices.

We look forward welcoming you at the 7th WoCoVA in Athens!


Ton van Boxtel
President and CEO WoCoVA
