40 years of Angioplasty in pictures
EuroPCR 2017 will celebrate the 40 years of Angioplasty next May, with the creation of a temporary exposition retracing the major milestones of the field’s evolution, and highlighting the pioneering spirit of the early years.
Because an image is worth 1,000 words, get a taste of the Expo with the images below, revealed each week until the expo opens!
