Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to inform you that the third Belgrade symposium on valvular heart disease [The Belgrade Valve International Symposium (BELVIS)] will be held on Saturday, June the 11th, 2022 at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Belgrade. This year's symposium will be in the form of a workshop with an emphasis on the practical part and will include two hands-on sessions that will relate to the simulation of the TAVI valve implantation and surgical implantation of the aortic valve, and two sessions with lectures. Sessions and workshops will be held live with audience in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Belgrade.

The meeting is jointly organized by cardiologists and cardiac-surgeons of Serbia, and under the auspices of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Serbia, the Association of Cardiologists of Serbia, the Association of Cardiovascular Surgeons of Serbia, the Medical Faculty of the University of Belgrade.

The symposium is intended for cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, as well as all doctors and nurses and technicians who are involved in this issue and are interested in this field of medicine.

We hope to jointly contribute to the benefit of this symposium to all who meet and are interested in this type of cardiovascular pathology..
