The scientific program of ICCAD 2017 is being planned with the collaboration and endorsement of the ESC Working Group for Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy and other prestigious groups. Keynote lectures will be delivered by a distinguished international faculty, while a large number of selected free communications will report new data from basic research laboratories and clinical centers around the globe.
The ICCAD program will include sessions on basic research, stem cell research and myocardial repair, vascular biology and clinical cardiology. We will also dedicate sessions to new advances in pharmacotherapy, especially to the current challenges in antithrombotic and antiplatelet therapy and to the new drugs in lipidology and diabetes which may so dramatically change the outcome and improve the prognosis. We will also discuss the latest news in interventional cardiology, stents and strategies, including the challenge of concomitant carotid and peripheral vascular disease, the rapidly expanding field of valvular interventions, and the role of the heart team and surgical management of coronary and cardiovascular disease.
This innovative conference will include presentations and discussions on the latest developments in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cerebrovascular disease by multidisciplinary leading experts. One unique aspect of our educational offering will be the emphasis on translation of these newly approved methods into daily clinical practice, we therefore expect truly interactive sessions that will impact clinical care.
We look forward to hosting you at an exciting and informative meeting of a high scientific standard.
