The GenTAC Aortic Summit, a biennual event, originated in 2009 as part of the mission of the National Registry of Genetically Triggered Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms and Related Conditions (GenTAC). Its objective are to share current knowledge of the scientific underpinnings of genetic aortic disease; review current best practices related to diagnosis and treatment; and foster scientific and educational exchange.

Professor Guillaume Jondeau (VASCERN coordinator) will give an update of the VASCERN registry during the “Registry Update” session on October 10th, 2020.
