Key highlights

The core philosophy of EuroPCR is to improve patient care. This was achieved through knowledge, experience, and practice sharing. How?

By creating a scientific content designed “By and For” you and with the involvment of scientific societies, working groups, industrial partners, and all EuroPCR participants (from across the globe) to develop content that is both interesting and relevant to your clinical practice.

By having several “For active participants” programmes of sessions with the inclusion for the first time of the “Sharing Centre”. In this dedicated lounge, delegates were able to – over a coffee – have informal discussions with EuroPCR founder Jean Marco and world-renown experts about topics that were not being discussed in other sessions.
Other “For active participants” programmes included “Learning...”; “Learning pathways”, “Young Practitioners”, and “Radial approach” (NEW).

Through “Young Practitioners” sessions, which addressed different clinical problems in sessions dedicated to trainees and those starting to work as independent operators.

By sharing views through React@PCR during lecture-based courses. This allowed delegates, via smartphone, to post questions and comments to the sessions’ chairs to feed the debate on stage.

By relying on the audience's questions. Indeed, without them, there would have been no Great Debate since none of the panellist is this year’s Great Debate had any slides– the discussion was solely dependent on questions from the audience. Furthermore, the topics of the debate (the clinical role of bioresorbable scaffolds and the optimal use of dual antiplatelet therapy) were chosen by you in an online poll. Read more
