With a deep regret, I would like to inform the IUA members that on November 16, 2021, in Warsaw, Professor Mieczyslaw Szostek passed away.
He was one of the founders of the Polish vascular surgery, long-term national consultant for vascular surgery, Head of the Department of General Surgery and Chest Diseases at the Medical University of Warsaw, Honorary Member of the Polish Society for Vascular Surgery and President of the European Society for Vascular Surgery who organized the ESVS annual meeting in Warsaw in 1990. He was a well-known teacher of many generations of vascular surgeons in Poland and very active and skilled surgeon.
A man has passed away – the legend of Polish vascular surgery.
