Zaproszenie na Konferencję EACTS w Warszawie (20-22.06)

12 06.2017r.

Szanowni Państwo, Koleżanki Koleżanki i Koledzy,

W imieniu swoim oraz wpółdyrektorów Konferencji  - prof. Volkmara Falka (Berlin) oraz prof. Peymana Sardari Nia (Maastricht) - pragnę serdecznie zaprosić Państwa na międzynarodową Konferencję EACTS Academy: Minimally Invasive Techniques in Adult Cardiac Surgery (MITACS), która odbędzie się w dniach 20-22 czerwca 2017 w Centralnym Szpitalu Klinicznym MSWiA w Warszawie.

Chcemy wspólnie w gronie Heart Team debatować nad zagadnieniami kardiochirurgii małoinwazyjnej, zabiegów hybrydowych oraz technik przezcewnikowych (m.in. TAVI, TMVI, Valve-in-Valve, MitraClip, LAAO), co zilustrowane będzie 10. zabiegami "za żywo" w transmisji 3D, a także „live-in-a box” oraz wykładami autorytetów z Polski, Europy i Kanady. Ponadto duży nacisk kładziemy na SIMULATOR CITY, gdzie przez cały czas Konferencji w dobranych grupach bezpośrednio będzie można potrenować zabiegi TAVI (kilka systemów), MitraClip, TEE i wiele innych.

Szczegóły i program konferencji na stronie: ww.eacts.org/educational-events/programme/mitacs2017/

Miło mi poinformować, że specjalna zredukowana opłata zjazdowa dla polskich lekarzy w trakcie specjalizacji to 100 Euro.

Serdecznie zapraszamy!

Dyrektorzy Konferencji:

Prof. Piotr Suwalski (Warszawa)
Prof. Volkmar Falk (Berlin)
