Welcome to LINC 2016 The Leipzig Interventional Course is committed to advancing the scientific and clinical evaluation and treatment of patients with complex vascular disease through an interdisciplinary discussion of novel endovascular techniques. LINC is a comprehensive and international live course designed to foster collaboration between colleagues of differing specialities and to promote the under足 standing and development of endovascular therapies that can be incorporated into daily clinical practice. The involvement of leading interventional centers from Europe, North, and South America as live trans足 mission sites, as well as the presence of interventional experts as guest operators in our cathlabs and opera足 ting rooms will provide a broad coverage of different interventional approaches and techniques.

LINC COLLABORATION In 2016 we are very happy to continue extending our international collaboration with leading vascular courses: CX @ LINC 2016 Sharing the vision of interdisciplinary collaboration as the basis of innovation and patient care, we are proud to con­tinue our productive partnership with the Charing Cross meeting by providing a dedicated CX@LINC programme. The involved faculty will discuss controversial topics, challenge the evidence and take part in a series of head-to-head debates to reach a consensus after discussion. VIVA @ LINC 2016 VIVA – one of the leading multidisciplin­ary endovascular courses in the United States has defined excellence in professional education in the field of vascular medicine over the years. As part of a close collaboration, we are very happy to introduce live cases broadcasted from featured VIVA live sites. VIVA @ LINC: Strategies on the frontline This is a case-based, real world session focusing on what we like best … real cases with challenges and complications that make the experts sweat. In this amphitheater setting, audience participation is encouraged and step-by-step case management is featured and discussed. CICE @ LINC 2016 CICE has established itself as the leading scientific conference in Latin America, exclusively dedicated to update and training in the different areas of application of Endovascular Therapy. The CICE meeting, has gained recognition for its innovative and creative features, its scientific commitment and interactive classes, packed with scientific and technological innovations, delivered by some of the world best experts in the field. SITE @ LINC 2016 SITE (International Symposium on Endovascular Therapeutics) has become an international appointment to be updated in current technology and future directions in vascular diagnosis and advanced endovascular therapies. SITE is committed to providing the oopportunity to discuss the current evidence and all the unmet needs about endovascular techniques. CCT Japan @ LINC 2016 Complex Cardiovascular Therapeutics (CCT) was found in 2001 to explore new techniques in the field of cardiovascular intervention. The sprit of CCT is "Challenge and innovation“. The CCT live demonstration course has grown to be the biggest live course in Asia at present.
