At the 7th WoCoVA there will be, next to scientific presentations, many posters with vascular access scientific information. This time we will use a system with electronic posters. This means that you can watch all posters on any electronic device, and you can do this already before the congress starts! Next to this we will have the posters presented by its scientist during the 7th WoCoVA.


From the 10th of October, you can visit and view all posters on our ePoster website.

Poster presentation program

Please find below an overview of the poster presentations of the 7th WoCoVA. The poster presentations will take place during the lunchbreak and afternoon networking break in the Trianti Foyer.
