Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
A 66 yo man with angina on effort, normal coronary angiograms and severe aortic stenosis .Cardiac MRI showed aortic valve stenosis and concentric hypertrophy of the left ventricle. In particular, steady-state free precession end-diastolic (A) and end-systolic (B) images at level of aortic valve plane showed a partial fusion of coronary cusps (three Valsava sinuses are clearly discernable)Aortic valve planimetry d (B) demonstrated an aortic valve area of 1 cm2 (0.5 cm2/m2).
Steady-state free precession 3-chamber image at end-systole ( C ) disclosed a riduced motionaortic valve cusps along with ‘signal void’ in the ascendending aorta (arrows), denoting an accelerated flowacross the valve. Finally, magnitude (D) and phase-contrast (E) images at the level of aortic valve plane revealeda peak velocity of 5.2 m/s (F).
