Dear sirs,

On behalf of the Organising Committee of the World Society of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons (WSCTS) 2020 Congress, I would

like to invite you to the WSCTS 30th Annual Congress and Exhibition 2020 in St Petersburg, Russia. It will be held on

September 19- 19, 2021.

We are glad that the Board of the WSCTS made the decision to meet on the banks of the Neva River. Its cold and fast waters connect the lake Ladoga, the largest lake in Europe, with the Baltic sea. Here Peter the Great has founded one of the most beautiful cities of the world in 1703. The most prominent architects, Giacomo Quarenghi, Carlo Rossi, Auguste de Montferrand, Antonio Rinaldi and many others, worked here for the future glory of the city. You will be fascinated by the beauty of palace ensembles, shady alleys of parks, squares and gardens. This unique city is full of outstanding architecture, movable bridges, openwork fences, fountains, and of course museums, concert and exhibition halls. Read more… Dear guests!

The current grid of the congress program is posted.

You can familiarize yourself with the topics of the reports and the preliminary scientific program of the Congress here.
