Our goal is to reduce the burden in 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"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.

OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IN EUROPE
Ms Laut said: “System delay, which is time from emergency medical service call to reperfusion with primary angioplasty, has been associated with increased mortality and heart failure after STEMI. The 2012 ESC STEMI guidelines1 highlight system delay as a performance measure of quality of care.”
She added: “The association between increased system delay and reduced work resumption and earlier retirement exists but we need more studies to find out why. System delay may directly impact on return to work by causing a reduction in the ventricular function of the heart or there may be other factors involved.”
Ms Laut concluded: “There is a heavy economic burden for society if patients don’t return to work after a heart attack. Investing in healthcare infrastructure and systems is value for money compared to the cost of people losing their ability to work.”
