Dear colleagues,Welcome to the LINC.

LINC represents an ambitious project of our department to establish a unique for our region event that will periodically cover all aspects of vascular neurosurgery. Our aim is to provide trainees with a thorough and up to date review of a different each time subject through theoretical lectures, debates as well as practical video sessions.

Anastasia Tasiou MD, PhD,
Attending Neurosurgeon

Our inaugural course, the LINC2016, was successfully completed in March 2016. Its main theme being cerebral aneurysms, and with over 50 participants and 20 faculty members from both Europe and the U.S., LINC2016 proved to be a substantial educational experience for us all.

For the next installment, held in March 2019, we focused on brain AVMs, a disease that still stirs controversy over what its management should be.

The third iteration was held in March 2023, and focused on cavernous malformations. The faculty covered all aspects of Cavernous Malformations, shared their experience in their management, and discussed their concerns on their pathogenesis, their natural history, and their efficacious treatment.

Ioannis Ioannidis, Assistant
Professor of Radiology

Over the years, experts from all over the world provide their know-how and share concerns with participants, who have a unique opportunity to discuss in detail and find realistic solutions to complex clinical problems. The “How I Do it” sessions provide an excellent opportunity to learn from the experts, while the vivid debates demonstrate the multi-perspective approach of controversial clinical conditions.

Additionally, Athens provides the opportunity for immersion to the classical culture, and an open invitation to unique Mediterranean gastronomic temptations.

We look forward to welcoming you again in March 2026, for what we trust will be – once again – a stimulating meeting and a truly didactic experience.
