When I first met Prof. Várady, he was already a legend. I was 26 years old and new to surgery. “Zoli bácsi“ was nevertheless kind and incredibly humble. Várady´s workshop not flashy, but the mood and friendly relations were all the better. He invited me to his Frankfurt clinic, he selflessly showed me his little paradise, and I realised that this surgery has a huge potential. Twenty-five years have passed, and the Várady Congress has become a regular legendary phlebology meeting with lectures going far beyond the issue of mini-phlebectomy. What has not changed is the good mood, friendly conversations and many inspiring colleagues from all over the world.

Ladies and Getlemen, it is a great honour for me to invite you to the 1st multilevel venous workshop in collaboration with legendary 36th Várady Workshop, which will be held in Bratislava (Presburg, Posony, Prešpork) the capital of Slovak Republic. We have the ambition to bring together beginners and advanced phlebologists in an open and free discussion. We want to offer the floor in particular practical everyday phlebosurgery and phlebolology. We want to focus on the details that will improve our and your results. We want to bring lectures and interviews with the best about what, how, and why. We want to talk openly about complications and how to avoid them. We have prepared dissection workshops and ultrasonography workshops to make surgeries even more precise and safer.

We are looking forward to welcoming YOU to Bratislava – the beautiful city on the Danube, the coronation city of the Austro- Hungarian monarchy, 60 km from Vienna, less than 200 km from Budapest and 300 km from Prague. Unfortunately, Corona thwarted our plans. Still, we are not giving up, and we are waiting for the situation to develop. We have prepared a virtual studio with maximum protection, meeting the highest sanitary criteria. Here we would like to welcome at least vaccinated speakers. We will be connected to the rest of you virtually. We look forward to your participation.

Dear Colleagues,
I am very pleased that you are participating in the Várady’s 36th International Workshop organised in collaboration with the 1st multilevel venous workshop.
I started a tradition of organising this conference on March 28th, 1986. Since then, many of my colleagues joined this forum every year. The International Forum for Minisurgery of Varicose Veins was founded on March 20th, 1993 and has over 1 500 members, now.
For decades, we performed a surgery on four patients on Friday mornings at each workshop while more than hundred colleagues had a chance to watch it live on TV.
Thirty conferences were held in Frankfurt, while the rest took place elsewhere around the world – Mexico, Budapest, Riga, Dusseldorf, Vienna, Pozsony/Bratislava. Meanwhile St.Petersburg, Poland and Belgrade are being considered as future venues.
During Covid pandemic, a virtual workshop was held in Vienna. Future workshops will probably be a combination of virtual and present form depending on the situation.
Each time, the workshop presents a mini-surgical technique, which is simple and inexpensive requiring only few instruments, but providing good results medically and cosmetically. I am offering my sound experience to help you achieve good results. It is not necessary to use complicated and expensive instruments and methods. Instead, it is important to use one’s brains and skills of your hand.
I wish you every success and I warmly invite you to Bratislava! I would be very pleased if you find the time to participate in the Várady’s 36th and 1st multilevel venous workshop .

Yours Prof. Várady
