Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the International Union of Angiology and all the organizers of the congress, I would like to express our sincere thanks to all participants of the XXV World Congress of the International Union of Angiology for their support. As I have already written, it was a great honor that Prague was chosen to host this congress.

We sincerely believe that the participation at the congress will also be of significant help in your daily clinical work thanks to the fact that apart from the traditional symposia and plenary sessions covering the most recent topics in the field of angiology, we were also able to introduce a number of rather unique and innovative sessions. In addition, we were happy and fortunate to have the possibility to intensively and also informally discuss many controversial topics with leading and outstanding experts from various areas of vascular medicine; we are also very appreciative of the contributions given by all of you.

We hope that you all enjoyed the outstanding atmosphere of this conference and the city of Prague.

We are looking forward to sharing with you the best practices in the field of angiology at future IUA meetings.

Karel Roztočil
President of the Congress
