Miectis about

The Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Technologies International Society (MiECTiS) was founded during the 1st International Symposium on Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Technologies which was held in Thessaloniki 13-14 of June 2014. More than 120 of founding international members cardiac surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists, clinical perfusionists and other scientists dealing with Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Technologies agreed to introduce a multidisciplinary Scientific Community in order to deal with this emerging technology and work towards its penetration in to clinical practice.

MiECTis is an Association of Cardiac Surgeons, Cardiac Anaesthesiologists, Clinical Perfusionists and other scientists involved with minimal extracorporeal technologies.
Among the main goals of MiECTiS are the development of cardiac surgery worldwide, the promotion of minimal invasive extracorporeal technology and the exchange of experiences and professional opinions with other related national or international health care professionals.

The membership to the Society is honorary and has no fees. Any individual who possesses the title of cardiac surgeon, cardiac anesthesiologist as well as clinical perfusionist and shows a proven interest in the field of minimal invasive extracorporeal technology is eligible to apply for membership. Main body of the Society will be the Steering Committee. The Society will work towards promoting Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Technologies.

We hope the MiECTiS will find its place in the scientific community. We aim for close cooperation with other Scientific Societies and we invite scientists who would like to join the Society to apply to the Secretary of MiECTiS on-line.
