The GEPROVAS structure has matured by applying the concept of the implant cycle to implantable medical devices in the field of vascular surgery. It therefore seemed obvious to us to bring together all surgical specialties using implantable devices and which ultimately have the same problems under the same banner, GEPROMED.
