ESL 2018


Lymphatic insufficiency is not only lymphoedema​.

Dear Colleagues and Friends of Lymphology,

It is my honour to invite you to the 44th congress of European Society of Lymphology taking place in Prague on 21st and 22nd September 2018 together with the annual congress of the Czech Society of Lymphology LYMPHO 2018.


Members of the European Society of Lymphology and the Czech Society of Lymphology have FREE registration to the congress with the obligation to pay a mandatory catering fee 1000 CZK / 40 EUR (coffee breaks, lunch and welcome drink).

  This offer is limited and applies for registration and payment until February 28, 2018!

European lymphology is doubtlessly a part of the world’s top, and not only considering the research of lymphatic system but especially considering treatment of lymphatic insufficiency. This insufficiency leads to a wide range of clinical pictures, from fibro-productive processes, impaired healing, inflammation complications of soft tissues, to lymphedema. 

The congress programme offers, in addition to main-topic lectures, discussions with experts from Europe and from overseas. This provides a unique opportunity to members of the medical community across the medical field to gain up-to-date information concerning diagnostics, screening, and conservative as well as surgical treatment of lymphatic insufficiency/lymphoedema. There are actually only few clinical fields in which this issue is not involved. 

As every year, the organizers have prepared sufficient premises for presenting and display of medical aids for treatment lymphoedema and its complications, which offers to the participants the opportunity to discusse directly with producers and distributors of medical aids.  This can be applicable also to producers and distributors of drugs, although lymphology is not currently, unlike other medical fields, based on pharmacotherapy. On the other hand, medication is in many cases an indispensable part of a complex treatment of lymphoedema.

Producers and distributors at the congress will have an opportunity to approach effectively the lymphological community, to introduce innovations, or to highlight advantages of their products. 

I am looking forward to seeing you at the congress.
Yours faithfully,

Assoc. Prof. Martin Wald, M.D., Ph.D.
President of the Congress
President of the Czech Society of Lymphology
