It is with great satisfaction that we invite you to the XXI Congress of the Brazilian Society of Thoracic Surgery – TORAX 2019, the biggest event of the specialty in Latin America that will be held on May 15, 16, 17 and 18, 2019 in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais.

We will share an updating time with innovative scientific programming in interactive sessions and satellite symposia addressing: Lung Cancer, Innovations in Video Surgery and Robotic Surgery, Advanced Respiratory Endoscopy, Thoracic Trauma and Oncology.

As a novelty, we will hold the “Big Day”, a multi-company event involving entities from South America, North America and Europe (SBCT / STS / ESTS / EACTS / ALAT and AIACT). The participation of congressmen from all over Latin America, national and international speakers, solidifies the magnitude of this event, allowing the reunion with colleagues, exchange of experiences, international contacts and acquisition of equipment.

Minas Gerais possesses great cuisine, exceptional climatic conditions and preciousness such as Inhotim with its collection of contemporary art. The modern architectural set of Pampulha, designed by Niemeyer, as well as Ouro Preto, pearl of the Baroque, are part of the World Heritage of Humanity by Unesco.

Surely, Belo Horizonte, land of hospitable people, will be open arms to welcome all Congressmen and their families.

Guilherme de Carvalho Ribeiro
President of Torax 2019
