on Vascular Anomalies

7-8 June 2019

Royal Olympic Hotel

Welcome letter

The theme of our symposium is the sophisticated analysis of a category of idiomorphous pathoses, the hemangiomas and the angio-dysplastic anomalies.
The plethora of dilemmas and enigmas in their diagnostic and therapeutic methodology have historically generated ironic palinodes, inelastic perimeters and asymptotic antitheses.
The mystery of their etiology and the amphibolies for their pathophysiology have characterized the skepticism in the syntaxis of homogenous and harmonious therapeutic protocols among physicians.
In this symposium, the diachronic passion for gnostic and noetic synthesis about these anomalies will be in the epicenter of our dialogues.
New technological, empirical and clinical parameters, in angiography, sclerotherapy, embolization therapy, magnetic tomography, sonography, genetics, pharmacotherapy, dermatological therapy, psychology, and surgery will be emphasized.
A synopsis of all diagnostic and therapeutic methods will be analyzed in systematic schemes.
It is with enthusiasm that I call you to the Symposium for synergy in new ideas and practices, as well as to treasure the authentic Hellenic philoxenia in Athens, on the 7th and 8th of June, 2019.

Stavros Tombris MD, PhD, DDS
